If you’re looking for family rafting trips in Colorado, check out the slower pace and gorgeous views on the Upper Colorado River. If you’re planning on a heart-pounding ride down a stretch of challenging whitewater, you’ll want to consider one of our trips on the world-famous Royal Gorge. With rapids ranging from Class II to Class IV and everything in between, you’re bound to find the right adventure for you and your companions on one of these Colorado white water rafting trips.

And with our range of trip lengths, you can also choose exactly how much of a Colorado rafting fix you need. Are you looking for a week and a half away with a few adventurous friends? Check out one of the longest white water raft trips in the West—a ten-day getaway rafting through Ponderosa Gorge, Slickrock, and Gateway Canyons. If you just have an afternoon to spare, we’d love to take you out for a relaxing 3-hour float down Colorado’s centrally-located Arkansas River. Whether you have a few hours, a long weekend, or more, you won’t regret spending it on the river with one of our Colorado rafting trips.
