LET'S GO RAFTING! Raft like a LOCAL! #RAFTLIKEALOCAL
NOONER: Round-trip from the boathouse to Shoshone in 60 minutes. You'll have fun and be done with plenty of time to spare. Paddlers must weigh at least 50 pounds.
ROARING FORK HALF DAY: With magnificent views of Mt. Sopris and the Roaring Fork Valley, our float down the Fork is the perfect way to mellow out for a few hours. Disconnect from the noise and reconnect with what matters most.
SHOSHONE FULL DAY: Our trip starts with a run through the Class III Shoshone rapids. From there, we'll paddle through Glenwood Canyon before stopping for lunch. Then it's time to hop back in the boats to continue our relaxing float down the Colorado River. If you're not interested in relaxing, we'll break out the inflatable kayaks for you to unleash your inner-guide.
