Which Trip is Right for Me?

We have Colorado Rafting trips designed for everyone ages 4yrs & up. This includes all ability levels, the question is how active do you want to be? Our most popular trips are Browns Canyon and The Numbers.

Browns Canyon is a great trip for first time and experienced rafters alike. This is a fun splashy trip that is scenic and non-stressful with many fun rapids.

The Numbers is a challenging and exciting trip where everyone needs to paddle, it has big drops, technical moves, and continuous whitewater.

We offer either oar or paddle rafts for our Browns Canyon or Family Float trips. All other trips are paddle rafts only. In an oar raft your guide does all the work by maneuvering with two large oars. In our paddle rafts you will help maneuver the raft by listening to your guide and paddling when asked to. If you would like an oar raft and sit back and relax please request it during booking otherwise all rafts will be paddle rafts.

If you need any help choosing a trip or have any questions please call us at 719 275-2890, or contact us here! Our friendly and helpful staff can assist you in choosing a Colorado rafting trip that is best suited for your group.
