Best decision we made, this rafting company was great!
“ Best decision we made, this rafting company was great! We took a Family Float trip as our introduction to rafting and it was amazing. Our guide Mike was THE BEST!!! He made everyone feel safe and a part of the experience. He helped us understand our roles, taught us so much, but most importantly made the whole ride fun!!! The ride was perfect for beginners! Thrilling and calming, a chance to take in the scenery. We also got to see a mule deer drinking on the shore! There are many companies to choose from, but ART was a great value and worth every penny. Every person we interacted with was kind and helpful. Avoid decision fatigue and pick this for your next rafting trip!”

We did the easy ride for beginners. It was AWESOME.
“ We did the easy ride for beginners. It was AWESOME. We had the whole family ages 6, 11, 11, 2 seniors and 2 adults. Everyone there was really nice. Worth the drive from Colorado Springs to go to their Cotopaxi location”

This was the best thing we’ve done so far on our trip to Colorado.
“ This was the best thing we’ve done so far on our trip to Colorado. This was our very first time whitewater rafting and as a mom, I was quite nervous at the beginning. The guides (Tex and Kasen) were so reassuring and skilled that my concerns were eased and we all had a blast! This is a great outfitter that we highly recommend! The guides were fabulous, knowledgeable and fun to be with. We definitely hope to come again!”
