Wonderful! One of the best experiences of my life! Thanks!
It was a fantastic experience and we didn’t want it to end. We can’t wait for next year to go on a multi-day trip.
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had rafting with your company. Everyone was very professional and kind.
This is our second trip and both times the guides are good people and well trained. If someone was to ask me to recommend a rafting company you would be #1.
I started rafting at WA in 1999 and have always had a good time. I highly recommend WA to anyone who wants to raft.
All the guides and office staff very committed to customer service!
I am always impressed by the quality and service at Wilderness Aware in everything from lunch to the guides.
When I made our reservation I knew we were going to have a fantastic time. Everything that happened today exceeded my expectation.
I thought lunch was superior to other day long water trips we have been on , for example in Key West. Thank you.
We’ve been with a lot of different rafting companies over the years and we have never used the same company twice but everyone on the trip agreed that your company is the best!

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.
