Perfect for first time rafters, families with young children, or those who are interested in a gorgeous day on the river.

River transportation is also available from our Winter Park/Fraser office.
Our Guides are outdoor enthusiasts and our greatest asset. Their love of the outdoors and the rivers is contagious. They are also highly-skilled professionals with years of combined rafting experience, extensively trained in first aid, CPR and river rescue techniques. Your safety is our primary concern. Fully-insured and licensed by the state of Colorado, our safety record is one of the best in the business. Children and non-swimmers are welcome. Our equipment is the highest quality available. We use Coast Guard approved life-jackets and professional quality Hyside rafts. Transportation is provided in clean, well-maintained buses and vans licensed and inspected by the state of Colorado.
