About the Arkansas River Bighorn Sheep Canyon Half Day Trip

Get some rafting experience under your belt on this family-friendly half day trip through beautiful Bighorn Sheep Canyon. This trip combines the perfect amount of fast-paced whitewater with mellow, mild rapids to create a fantastic trip suitable for first-timers and outgoing kids. It’s a favorite among families who take Colorado rafting trips!

In addition to the fun, splashy rapids you will experience on the river, enjoy the fantastic Colorado scenery. Bighorn Sheep Canyon is full of interesting geological formations and an abundance of wildlife, including the Colorado Bighorn Sheep – of course! Enjoy this adventure as a Full Day trip, or for a similar rafting experience further upstream near Buena Vista, take a look at our Lower Browns Canyon or Browns Canyon Half Day.


Each Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip booked by Wilderness Aware is run by our partner, Echo Canyon River Expeditions. Echo Canyon runs a quality operation with highly-trained and skilled guides.

  • 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.
