Prepare to get wet on one of Colorado’s wildest rafting challenges. Make your way to the rafting outpost in Cañon City, approximately 1 hour southwest of Colorado Springs, in the morning. Meet your expert river guide and gear up with safety equipment and paddles before transport out to the launch site on the Arkansas River. For the best experience, come prepared with sunscreen, sunglasses and quick-drying clothes.
Get your feet wet with a run down the relatively calm class II and III rapids of Bighorn Sheep Canyon, where you can soak up the beautiful high desert scenery and keep an eye out for herds of wild bighorn sheep during calmer stretches. Refuel with a deli-style picnic lunch on the riverbanks midday.
Once you're warmed up, get ready for a wild ride on the class IV+ whitewater rapids of the Royal Gorge. Work along with the group and your expert guide to tackle churning flumes and bends, all while surrounded by the Gorge’s dramatic canyon walls.
Back at the outpost in the afternoon, you’ll have a chance to purchase souvenir photos to commemorate your adventure.
Please note: Minimum ages apply, and all rafters must have the ability to swim. See Additional Info for more details.
