Whitewater rafting near Aspen

Mild Family-Friendly Rafting Trips







Looking for something the whole family can enjoy? Check out the Middle Roarig Fork.  This mild stretch of water, results in the ideal adventure for families with children or for anyone looking for a laidback river experience. Aspen Whitewater’s Mild rafting trips include an 8 mile trip on the Middle Roaring Fork River (Class II/III) as well as our Rafting and Ranching trip on the Roaring Fork River.

Our Rafting and Ranching trip includes a visit to Rock Bottom Ranch. Since Rock Bottom Ranch’s 113-acre wildlife preserve and educational Ranch sits between the Roaring Fork River and the Crown of Mount Sopris, it is a convenient midway location between Basalt and Carbondale on the Rio Grande Trail. Its acreage includes wetlands, spring-fed ponds, a braid of the Roaring Fork River, cottonwood bottomlands, and a view of piñon-juniper woodlands on adjacent BLM land. Additionally, the ranch also includes teaching farmyards, pasturelands, and gardens making it the perfect combination of adventure and education.

For something a little different, Aspen Whitewater offers stand up paddle board instructional tours throughout the North Star Preserve just out side of Aspen.

Both of our mild, family-friendly rafting tours are available May through September and are beginner 1/2 day excursions suitable for children 6 and over.
