Our guide was so awesome. She made my first experience the best.
You are all amazing! I felt pampered and had a very stress free trip which is an amazing thing considering there were 36 teens coming along for the ride. Thank you!
Really, really fantastic trip! 10 out of 10! Great company. I’m going to tell all my friends about you- Thank you!
We live in the area & have always had positive results with your company. We don’t even consider going with anyone else.
I appreciated how the guide was very concerned for our comfort and well being as well as the safety of the other rafts.
I have been on seven professional raft trips. This was by far the best all around.
I love the staff!! Very entertaining and welcoming. This was a great rafting experience. I want to come back tomorrow and do it again!
Frenchie was the best guide I’ve ever had! This is a great company and I will definitely be telling friends about it!
I just wanted to thank you again for the trip of a lifetime.
This was truly an enjoyable experience and the highlight of our Colorado visit. I would recommend your company to anyone.

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.
