Grand Canyon Rafting - paddle, oar, or motorized

Jump to last reply

I'm in the initial planning phase of a GC rafting trip for next spring and considering either an 8d motorized or 2 week paddle or oar trip.

Price is a bit higher for the longer trek, but that's not a major concern. I can afford the time, so also not an issue. Anybody have experience with either, and a preference? I'm wondering if anyone who has done this has thought 2 weeks was too much time (repetition, roughing it, fatigue, etc), or vice versa, whether 1 week doesn't do the GC justice with all the side canyon hiking opportunities, etc.

Does a motorized trip detract from the experience? I'm looking at an early May departure. Late April if I can swing it, but not as likely.
