Intermediate Class III-IV

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.

2 Day Raft Trip Was Unforgettable!

★★★★★
5 5 1
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.

Arkansas River Tours made my first rafting experience so memorable!

I've rafted on some rad rivers before, but this was by far my favorite! I did the Browns Canyon full day trip with a couple of buddies and it will be a trip I remember for life. Even though the rapids were pretty intense, our raft always felt in control. The guides are top notch! Great communication, great people, and a great time. I can't recommend Arkansas River Tours enough.
