I thought lunch was superior to other day long water trips we have been on , for example in Key West. Thank you.
Very pleasant and enjoyable experience. Rafted four other times and this was the best.
We booked our trip cold off the internet and found from the very beginning a very friendly and courteous staff who helped out and answered all our questions.
This was the highlight of our trip to Colorado!
You are doing a great job. I appreciate how you try to keep the environment clean. Keep it up
I was impressed with your entire operation. This inn-to-inn package I will suggest to others-nice!
All of our guides worked really well with our Scouts working on whitewater merit badge.
Wonderful! One of the best experiences of my life! Thanks!
I have rafted with other companies before but I found your company and Mike our guide to be outstanding! I will be back!
Wahoo! Best trip ever!

Wilderness Adventure River Rafting Vacations – Travel in Colorado and Arizona
Colorado has a wide variety of rafting trips available. Most of the rivers you hear about are popular because of easy access to roads and cities. Many of these rivers such as the Arkansas and the Upper Colorado host thousands of visitors each year.
Although Wilderness Aware Rafting loves showing folks these popular rivers, our heart is in the wilderness. Our rafting friends that choose to go the extra mile to get away from it all agree with us. Days spent challenging the rapids and floating peacefully among the canyons are our most treasured moments in this hectic world. We’ll leave our cars at the ‘put-in’ and will pass little or no development for 2 to 10 days depending on the river. At lunchtime, we’ll pull over and make a deserted beach or meadow into our private picnic ground. Late in the afternoon, we’ll make a deserted canyon our home for the night. The trees will be our bed canopies and the canyon’s rim will be our walls. The white noise we grow accustomed to in the city is replaced by the sound of the river’s running water and the comforting calls of birds.
We have 4 great wilderness rivers to choose from including North Platte River in northern Colorado in May, June and early July, the Dolores River in southern Colorado in May and early June, the Gunnison River in western Colorado available all summer long and finally the Salt River in Arizona which runs from March through May.
