About the 2 Day Arkansas River Extreme Trip

Take on the Arkansas River’s most popular class V sections…the Numbers AND the Royal Gorge. Riverside camping includes freshly prepared meals from lunch on the first day to lunch on the last day plus a complimentary continental breakfast upon arrival at our office. This vehicle-assisted overnight trip will meet and depart from our office near Buena Vista, CO. Together we will tackle the fast-paced and technical Numbers in the morning ending the day with the exhilarating Narrows on the first day. Driving a short distance to our campsite allows us to bring all the comforts of home.

You will wake up early on day two to steaming hot coffee or hot chocolate and a satisfying breakfast before taking off to the infamous Royal Gorge. Hit the river and enjoy class III-IV rapids before lunch then travel into the heart of the gorge and the challenging class V rapids for the afternoon. Your trip will finish in Cañon City and return to our office in Buena Vista.

Note: We may run this trip in reverse (Royal Gorge before Numbers) depending on availability and/or rationing.

  • Lydia filled us with confidence. She was skilled and knowledgeable and explained each set of rapids so we knew what to expect. She was great company and we had the best experience. She was brilliant.

  • I spent several days researching various rafting options and after speaking w/your team was sold. We were not disappointed-the trip is spectacular and our guide Sean was informative, lively professional and entertaining.
