Most Popular Rafting Destination in the U.S.

The Arkansas River has one of the longest seasons in the state of Colorado and stretches over 100 miles of raftable water. Experiences range from mellow and scenic to adrenaline whitewater! With reliable water conditions and abundance of experiences makes the Ark one of the most popular rafting destinations in the US if not the entire world.

Run April through September

Closest Rafting to Denver

Clear Creek river is conveniently located 35 minutes west of Denver and is considered steep and narrow producing continuous whitewater. Due to the fast past of the river the tours are shorter and typically last about 1 to 2.5 hours on the water. Family Friendly and adventurous rafting options are available.

Run May through Mid-August

Beautiful scenery with mild whitewater for the entire family

The Upper Colorado is designated a Wild & Scenic River and the scenery is breathtaking. This trip is mellow and allows guests to either relax on a raft, paddle their own kayak or SUP.
