6 Great Rivers That Wilderness Aware Rafting Offer Trips On


Wilderness Aware Rafting is one of the more well known rafting companies in Colorado. That said, the rivers we choose to raft reflect our love for water, and we only offer trips on the best rivers available for commercial rafting. So here is a list of the 6 greatest rivers that we offer as rafting destinations in and around Colorado.

1. The Gunnison River, CO: The Gunnison River is located next to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Surrounding towns include Delta, Grand Junction and Montrose. It is an isolated and gorgeous river, home to both narrow and tall cliffs that are near black in color. Gunnison Whitewater rafting is a special thing, cruising through canyons where the rock is as dark as the shadows they cast. It’s quite easy to become lost in the moment whilst rafting here, where your mind can wander as far as the river snakes.

2. The Dolores River, CO: The Dolores River is located deep in the desert of Colorado’s southwestern region. Surrounding towns include Durango, Cortez, and Telluride.Rafting Dolores river offers rapid difficulties ranging from novice to advanced, which allows for any range of experienced rafters to partake in the joy of this desert beauty. The river is long enough that multi-day trips are available, where you can enjoy the sounds of the whispering river before you doze off under a clear night sky. The peace that is brought to you here is unquestionable, and once experienced, you’d understand why.

3. The Arkansas River, CO: The Arkansas River is found running through the heart of Colorado. Surrounding towns include Buena Vista, Salida, and Canon City. It is believed to be on of America’s most popular white water rafting locations. Arkansas river white water rafting is suitable for any experience of rafter. The rapids to be found there range from mild to extreme difficulty. Wilderness Aware Rafting even has designated picnic sites to stop at, which are in the most scenic of areas.

4. The Upper Colorado River, CO: The Colorado River begins high in the Rocky Mountain National Park. From there it flows and grows into a gentle giant which can be enjoyed by anyone. Surrounding towns include Steamboat Springs and Kremmling. Rafting Colorado river is perfect for newcomers, young children, and older folks. Essentially the whole family can partake in enjoying this river where you’ll pass by meadows and rugged cliffs alike.

5. The North Platte River, CO: The North Platte River is one of the least rafted rivers in Colorado, as there are only a couple weeks a year that it can actually be rafted. Surrounding towns include Walden and Kremmling. If you want to get away from it all, there is no better river than this. Where you’re guaranteed to see more wild life than people, and natural beauties rather than man made ones.

6. The Salt River, AZ: The Salt River of Arizona is a desert gem, found deep in the Sonoran Desert. Surrounding towns include Phoenix, Tucson, and Globe. Salt River rafting trips can be expected to contain beaches and beautiful canyon scenery. Between the springtime wildflowers and the large Sauaro Cacti, there is no other place in the world where such beauties can be seen whilst rafting down a river.

Hopefully you can find the time to enjoy whats left of the summer on one of these memorable rivers. It’s hard to imagine any time being better spent. Great memories are not to be had unless they are made. So go out and make a pleasant memory for yourself.
