Colorado River Rafting Trips
Whitewater rafting in Colorado
Colorado River Rafting trips offer some of the best whitewater adventures on the continent. Remote and beautiful river ecosystems rest on the banks of the Colorado River and some of its major tributaries, all coursing from the great Rocky Mountains. On the Colorado River, float through Ruby & Horsethief Canyon before crossing the state line into Utah and Westwater Canyon. In the northern boundaries of the state, choose from two iconic river sections coursing through Dinosaur National Monument; Gates of Lodore on the Green River & the wild Yampa River both travel through millennia of geologic and human history to merge at their confluence mere miles from the Colorado border. Whether you stick to a classic stretch on the Colorado River or try your hand at a hidden gem in Dinosaur National Monument, you won’t be disappointed by the wild ride of Colorado whitewater rafting.
Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon Colorado Rafting trip takes us down a segment of the Colorado River that packs a real whitewater punch, with ancient black-rock that gives it the nickname “miniature Grand Canyon”.
The Yampa is WILD. The last undammed river on the Colorado River system. Through the years the Yampa has defied many attempts to dam its free flow and with natural flood-cycles remained the standard bearer for a truly authentic deep wilderness experience. For great early season rafting, there isn’t anywhere better!
Whitewater rafting trips through Lodore Canyon are filled with rapids and beautiful scenery. The ‘Gates’ dwarf you with 800 foot exquisite vermilion canyon walls. Hike to a hidden waterfall and navigate legendary whitewater such as “Disaster Falls” &“Hell’s Half Mile”. A place with such rich human and natural history will leave you with a new story around every bend.
