Bighorn Sheep Canyon rafting is surely the trip for you! This trip launches beneath the dramatic Cotopaxi cliffs at our convenient riverside base. We begin the trip in easy water to give us time to form a competent paddle crew (or passengers in an oar boat.) Floating past spectacular geological formations and views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range we run exciting Class II-III rapids like Texas Creek, Maytag, and Devil’s Hole. After a delicious buffet lunch we plunge into more demanding and technical rapids (Class III-IV): Prelude, 3 Rocks Falls, Spikebuck and Shark’s Tooth to name a few. This trip is suitable for first timers or experienced rafters with great views and lots of adventure. Sightings of bighorn sheep are very common in this section. The full-day trip is the best value and most rewarding river experience with a trip time of 5 to 6 hours. Don't miss out on a full day of fun in Bighorn Sheep Canyon Colorado!

2 Day Raft Trip Was Unforgettable!

I went on the 2 day Gunnison Gorge raft trip and had the most incredible time. I've been on a few multi-day trips, but this one takes the cake. The guides were very skilled, knowledgable, and friendly. The views were unforgettable and rapids thrilling. My favorite part was the waterfalls on the second day.

The Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip was great!
