Arkansas River

Full Day

Beginner Class II-III

Are you ready for excitement? We collaborated with Captain Zipline Adventure Tours to combine a 1/4 day Cottonwood family float and zipline near Colorado Springs!
In the morning, you'll experience enjoyable Class II-III rapids on our beautiful 1/4 day rafting adventure. This is the perfect introductory trip for families with little kids or timid beginners. Upon return, we make you some delicious BBQ steak, chicken, or vegetarian option, riverside of course! Here, you'll have the opportunity to spot some Bighorn sheep that roam along the beautiful Cotopaxi cliffs. Also, be sure to stop inside to see the slide show of your rafting trip before you drive to Captain Zipline, which is 25 minutes off of Hwy US 50.
The Lost Canyon Zipline near Colorado Springs consists of 7 cables — 6 exciting, high-flying cable rides between 200-700 feet in length and a practice (Bunny Zip) cable that is 80 feet long. The Bunny Zip is only 5 feet off the ground, allowing you to have your feet on the ground anytime you assume a standing position. The zipline tour cables, however, are stretched over a rocky canyon some 150-200 feet deep. Most people that lead an active lifestyle and are in good health should not have any difficulty ziplining. Adventurers from 6 years of age and up can zip. For our guest's comfort and safety, we limit men's weight to 250 pounds and women to 190 pounds. The perfect Colorado family vacation package awaits you! Raft and zipline near Colorado Springs today!

Smaller company and it shined through in the service.

★★★★★
We chose this company based off of word of mouth from some friends. Easy booking process. We chose the family float. Arrived 45 mins prior and they got us all set up. Our guide Kyle made the trip great and catered to our boys who are 6 and 8 and made them feel right at home. Overall this was a great experience and something that I would recommend to all. I also really enjoyed that this was a smaller company and it shined through in the service.

This was our families first time to raft and Kasen did an excellent job as our guide! She shared lots info about different things we passed along the river, kept the trip interesting! Highly recommend Arkansas River Tours for families with younger kids! Our boys are 8 & 9 and they had a blast! The trip was the perfect amount of time for us too, not too long and not too short.
