Bachelor/ette Party Rafting Trips: Celebrate with Public Lands!

You’re getting married, congrats! That’s so awesome to hear that you’re committing to a life of adventure with another individual who’s as passionate about the outdoors as yourself. A bachelor/ette party rafting trip on Colorado’s Arkansas River is a great way to celebrate!

Maybe the typical rager in a big city (like Vegas) isn’t quite your style. You’d rather spend time in a tent or raft than a noisy club. We have a few different ways to give you one last single hoorah before you say your “I do’s” with your adventure partner.

Redefining “wild”: Bachelor/ette Party Rafting + Fishing Trips!

A rafting or fishing trip is a great way to celebrate your soon-to-be new adventure on our public lands.

If fishing is your cup of tea we love our Half and Half Trip where you get to wade/walk and float fish, all in a single day. Greet the morning sun as you step into the Arkansas River and cast your fly with waders on. Then say farewell to the sun as you float into the evening, using large dries and streamers.

Take advantage of fishing for more than one day with our overnight fishing trip in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. You’ll get to float two different sections of the Arkansas River and enjoy a night out under the stars at our base in Cotopaxi, followed by a hearty breakfast and another day out on the river.

For those wanting to embrace the adrenaline of Colorado’s rivers, consider a rafting trip. We have a variety of rafting trips that range from ½ day to full day and even overnights.

Rafters who are in great shape and love a great thrill will definitely want to join us on our Royal Gorge trip as we navigate rapids that are Class IV+ and require rafters to really dig in and paddle hard through different sections.

The Royal Gorge’s version of “Wet n wild.” If this intimidates, take solace in how calm our River Manager looks as she guides this rapid!

Gunnison Gorge, on the Gunnison River, is great for rafters who want to take it a little easier. The Class III rapids aren’t as demanding and give everyone a great opportunity to relax and take in the sights of the gorge.

And if you want to combine some thrills with relaxation, our River and Rail tour could be perfect. Your day starts by rafting 10 miles on the Bighorn Sheep Canyon with several exciting Class III rapids. At lunch time we’ll prepare and serve you a hearty BBQ chicken or steak lunch at our private riverside picnic area. Take a break, relax, and watch for bighorn sheep that frequent this area. Once your food has had time to settle you’ll head over to the train depot to catch the 3:30pm departure of the Royal Gorge Route. On your 24-mile round-trip train ride you’ll follow the famous Royal Gorge as you snake along the Arkansas River, carved 1,000 feet deep into the gorge.

Before you stand toe-to-toe with your next adventure and say “I do,” let us show you and your friends one last wild trip across our beautiful public lands!
