About the Bighorn Sheep Canyon Full Day Trip
Experience energetic and enjoyable whitewater on a full day of family-friendly rafting on Bighorn Sheep Canyon. Mellow water is accented by exciting rapids during this trip, creating a wonderful full day adventure suitable for outgoing young families and timid first-timers.
This family favorite is one of the best rafting trips for kids in Colorado! Take a trip from Denver, Breckenridge, or Vail for this great family-friendly raft trip.
Rugged Colorado scenery surrounds the Arkansas River and you wind your way downstream. Take in the astounding beauty of the area and spot one of the many Colorado Bighorn Sheep and other wildlife that call this canyon home. If you are short on time, consider the Bighorn Sheep Half Day trip, or wander further upstream and tackle the more challenging, but still family-friendly Browns Canyon Full Day.

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 cannot wait to come back! Also loved how funny all the guides were. It was the most I’ve seen my sister laugh in a long time! Thank you so much for this amazing experience.
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.
