This guided Instructional tour on the Roaring Fork River is the perfect way to test out paddle boarding for the first time. Running through the spectacular North Star Nature Preserve a mile east of Aspen, this slow-moving stretch of river meanders past wetlands and grasslands at the foot of Aspen Mountain, giving paddlers plenty of time to soak in the big views. Bring a bathing suit and a quick-dry top to take a dip in the refreshing water, or take a seat on your board, meditate, and become one with nature. Either way, this tranquil float will leave you cleansed, calm, and eager to do more paddling.
The trip includes a paddle board and all the necessary gear, a guide, and transportation. As a beginner, be warned that you might take a splash in the refreshing water, so come prepared with a bathing suit and active wear!
Trip includes paddle board, paddle, PFD (Personal Floatation Device) and Dry bag for the group.
What to Wear Paddle Boarding
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 Paddle Boarding at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device. AWR can provide you with wetsuit, neoprene booties and tops if requested.
We provide splash gear on all of our trips, and wetsuits and helmets when appropriate.
