Experience This Fun Half Day Colorado Whitewater Rafting Trip!

Come enjoy the excitement and thrills of the Shoshone rapids including Baptism, Tuttle’s Tumble, Tombstone, The Wall, and Maneater combined with the magnificent beauty of Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River.

By far our most popular trip, this 3 hour rafting trip meets at our river front facility. Heading up river about 9 miles to the Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River, we get off to an exciting start as we navigate the class III(IV) rapids including The Wall, Tombstone, Maneater, Pinball, and many more. The river gradually begins to mellow out and your guide will educate you on the incredible history of Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River. At lower fall flows, natural hot springs flow right into the river and we can stop and soak. Your trip will end right back at our private river ramp at our facility, where you can walk from the raft, to your car and belongings, and immediately view photos from your trip.
