Whitewater rafting near Aspen

Adventurous Rafting Trips







If you’re ready to shoot some rapids but you don’t want to get too wild (yet), you’ll love one of Aspen Whitewater Rafting’s adventurous trips. With half-day and full-day options to choose from, these fun Class III rapids are available on all three local rivers, making these our most popular rafting adventures that we offer. You won’t need any previous whitewater experience, but you will have to paddle, so make sure everyone meets the age restrictions and brings a gung-ho attitude.

Upper Roaring Fork, through Woody Creek and Snowmass Canyon, is a locals’ favorite just minutes from Aspen. Across Independence Pass, on the Arkansas River, Fractions is an action-packed half-day adventure, while Browns Canyon serves up a riverside lunch and a full day of rafting through one of America’s newest and most scenic national monuments. Shoshone, on the Colorado River, passes below the dramatic cliffs and spires of Glenwood Canyon. 

No visit to Colorado is complete without the authentic Western experience and genuine thrill of running the rapids of a mountain river. Whatever your reason for being here – family reunion, bachelor/bachelorette party, corporate retreat – you will love one of these great trips. Give us a call at our office in Aspen to figure out the best trip for you and your party!
