Arkansas River

Full Day

Beginner / Intermediate

Rafting through the newest National Monument in Colorado, Browns Canyon is an exciting full day of whitewater rafting near Buena Vista and Salida. Our Browns Canyon rafting trip combines splendid whitewater rafting with spectacular views of the Sawatch Range, which contains some of Colorado’s highest peaks. We raft through fun Class III rapids such as Pinball, Zoom Flume, the Staircase, and the infamous Seidel’s Suckhole. This scenic canyon parallels the Brown’s Canyon Wilderness Study Area. We offer this popular whitewater rafting trip as a full day for groups of 6 or more, and also as the first day of a multi-day Arkansas River overnight rafting trip. The trip lasts about 5-6 hours on the water. A delicious riverside lunch is served halfway through the outing. Come raft the newly declared National Monument with great views and excitement! Great trip for families, groups, and adventure seekers of all levels.

We had such a fantastic experience!

★★★★★
We had such a fantastic experience with this company and our guide, Mike Dunn. We had to come back for a second time already and we plan to return later in the season! I highly recommend this experience & I would ask for Mike again and again

It's a trip full of beautiful landscapes, fun and laughter!

★★★★★
It's a trip full of beautiful landscapes, fun and laughter, Is a great wat to be entertained and experience Colorado in a day. The guides are very helpful at all times, The safety procedures and rules were explained before starting and re-explained during the process, you can enjoy the time with family/friends and have a lot of fun memories. They have the right equipment for everybody, They gave me a helmet capable to stand a Go Pro camera (I needed it) it worked perfectly. The lunch provided by ART is as good as the trip itself, you can enjoy a nice talk with the guides and your friends in the meantime. Our guides were Ethan Nelson and Maggie, they are so lovely and friendly, 10/10 points for them, we really enjoyed their guidance. Thank you so much ART.

I’d give this place more than 5 stars!

★★★★★
I’d give this place more than 5 stars if that’s was an option! We had a blast, and got lucky enough to get the coolest guide Ron John. He was funny informative and an awesome cook! All of the staff we met were very friendly. We will be going back every year.
