If you could only do one whitewater rafting trip in Colorado, Browns Canyon would be the one. This is the quintessential Western adventure, complete with old cabins and railroad tracks along the river that give the trip a real frontier feel. The 16-mile stretch of the Arkansas River takes you through scenic Browns Canyon National Monument, where the massive granite formations make for great viewing when you get a break from paddling, which you will have to do a fair amount of on this trip.
After a gentle warm-up following the put-in, you’ll take on incredible, class III rapids like Zoom Flume, the Seven Stairs, and Seidel’s, with a break in between for a riverside lunch and a chance to take a non-involuntary dip in the river.
This is a staff favorite, and we think it’s our best trip. If you a have full day to dedicate to rafting, this adventure is a must. A perfect choice for adults and families looking for an unforgettable rafting experience, with trips running daily all summer.

What to Wear Rafting
We suggest wearing quick drying clothing such as non-cotton shorts and t-shirt or bathing suit. Be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen (you will be rafting at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device, and comfortable walking shoes. We will provide you with neoprene booties, so your shoes will not be going in the river. Bring a towel and a change of clothes for the ride home.
Our shuttles will act as your mobile locker room. Everything that is not going on the water will stay on the van! It will be manned at all times or locked throughout your voyage to ensure your stuff will be there upon your return.
