Late in the summer, when other rivers are running low, the mighty Colorado shines, and Shoshone is one of the river’s best runs in its namesake state. Coursing for 12 miles through majestic Glenwood Canyon, this half-day trip starts off with a bang, sending you immediately into exciting class III rapids before letting up enough to give you a chance to admire the towering cliff walls.

You might even spot some wildlife. Rafters have seen bighorn sheep and marmots, and a lucky few have even spied black bears. Seasoned paddlers to never-evers 6 and up willing to do moderate paddling will all love this late-summer classic.

What’s Included
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.

We provide splash gear on all of our trips, and wetsuits and helmets when appropriate.
