Father’s Day Fun!

This Father’s Day, give Dad the gift of adventure! In addition to offering the best whitewater rafting trips in the state of Colorado, did you know we also can help cross soaking in hot springs, zip lining, and horseback riding off Dad’s bucket list?

Whitewater Rafting!
This one is an obvious favorite here at Wilderness Aware Rafting. Colorado’s Arkansas River is known around the world for offering some of the best whitewater fun. It’s also home of the gorgeous Browns Canyon National Monument . We offer trips for all levels and our proximity to Colorado Springs, Denver, and Summit County make this a great option to surprise Mom with. Cruising through rapids and taking in the beautiful rocky mountain scenery will make for an unforgettable Father’s Day gift!

Soaking in the Natural Hot Springs
After an energizing day on the river whitewater rafting, there’s nothing more relaxing than soaking in the natural hot springs found in Buena Vista and Salida. Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort, Cottonwood Hot Springs, and Salida Hot Springs are all a quick drive from our Buena Vista office. We offer discounted admission passes too so be sure to ask about those when you’re booking your whitewater rafting trip.

Horseback Riding
Spending time on a horse riding through mountain trails is a Colorado classic. There are a variety of options ranging from half day, full day, and sunset tours. At Wilderness Aware Rafting we offer a Paddle and Saddle package that is a family favorite sure to put a smile on Dad’s face this Father’s Day.

Zip Lining
If your family is looking to take on two of the most adrenaline inducing activities Colorado offers, we’ve got the package for you. You can pair your whitewater rafting adventure with a zip line tour on the top of the Rockies. This is truly the best way to enjoy views of beautiful Colorado mountains from every angle 😉

This Father’s Day, skip the brunch and do something different! Call us at 1-800-In A RAFT or start booking Dad’s whitewater rafting adventure here.
