Colorado White Water River Rafting Trips

arkansas river raftingWhitewater rafting on the Arkansas River with Arkansas River Tours will be the highlight of your family vacation! The Arkansas River, a short trip from Colorado Springs or Denver, provides several options for your whitewater river rafting Colorado adventure. Family Class whitewater awaits you in Bighorn Canyon located close to other attractions such as the world famous Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City. Extreme Adventure Class whitewater of the Royal Gorge thrills even the most avid rafter. The Royal Gorge is great for challenging rafting as it plunges 65 feet per mile through one of Colorado’s most dramatic gorges. Additional Family Class whitewater in Brown’s Canyon is available to visitors in the Salida or Buena Vista area, which is home to many of Colorado’s 14,000 foot peaks. We combine these sections for 2 or 3 day trips. Choose a white water rafting in Colorado as part of your vacation itinerary or make a multi-day trip the focus of your visit to Colorado’s whitewater playground. An 8% Colorado State Park use fee and access fee must be added to all Arkansas River trips.

“Thank you , Julie, for a wonderful whitewater rafting adventure, one we will NEVER forget! It was YOU that made this trip a memory of a lifetime. We can only hope that we will return sometime and you will be our guide”. B. Johnson
“My two teenaged sons and I toured with you on June 16 of this year; our guide was Tex, along with student guide Cody. We wanted you to know that we never have rafted before and Tex and Cody handled us with skill, empathy and great humor. The water was high in June and the the section we ran was faster than ordinary. Tex tuned in exactly right, balancing my son’s desire for as much excitement as possible with mine to achieve this without injury. He did both, demonstrating his skill with never once needing to be macho about it. As a result, we three have a terrific memory of a fun time together. Thanks very much and keep up your dual focus on fun and safety.” J. Richard Spatafora
