Grand Canyon for slightly handicapped situation

Jump to last reply

My husband and I were, until recently, quite active. Recent injuries have permanently rendered hiking impossible and extremely painful for my husband. It cannot be fixed, so will not improve. He can go for short (less than 1/2 mile) distances on FLAT territory, but that's about it. I am having quite the time planning active vacations that involve no walking. We kayak, have rafted the Gauley, snorkle, etc. He wants to go to the Grand Canyon, but what could we do there? And could we do things around there with no hiking?
1. Are there rafting trips in the GC that involved no hiking out or in? I haven't seen any so far that don't involve some sort of hiking also, so don't want to bang my head on a wall is such a thing doesn't exist.
2. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we can do to still have a nature-based GC experience without the walking? Or is this just something that's not possible?
3. Our time and money (within reason HA) are not an issue. We're retired. Would like to keep it within 2 weeks, but what ever you guys suggest I'll take to heart.
4. Flying out of Virginia. Can stop at other places you suggest to or from GC either by renting car or via airplane.

Thanks a lot for ANY help. This is a new world to us to not be able to just do anything we want. Humbling.
