This might be the best half-day run of all on one of America’s most popular rafting rivers. The class IV whitewater is practically non-stop for nine miles, the views of the towering, 14,000-foot high Sawatch Mountains are stunning, and the eight numbered rapids (considered by old-time miners to be non-navigable) are all unique and tons of fun.
Ask locals what their favorite trips are, and you’ll hear Numbers brought up a lot. It’s a special experience. If you’re 15 or older, in decent shape, and prepared to get wet and paddle hard, you can step up and make this epic run your first rafting trip.
The raft trip, shuttle, splash gear, wetsuit, snacks and lunch (when specified). Photos are not included but can be purchased online immediately after the trip!
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.
