Looking for a way to wake up that is even better than coffee? Join our morning IK trip! Inflatable kayaking is one of the best and most exciting of Aspen’s activities! Inflatable kayaks (also called Duckies) are ideal for people looking for a little more excitement and who want to be in control of their own craft on the river. Each person will have their own inflatable kayak, and there will be one or two guides on this non-traditional Roaring Fork rafting trip.
This sport is for self-sufficient people who like to control their own destinies. If you have a family or group of friends with mixed interests and abilities, we can combine a rafting and ducky trip so that everyone is happy! The Basalt Mountain section is ideal for ducky trips. The rapids are pool drop, so there is plenty of time to pick up the pieces at the bottom of the rapids!
There are fun and challenging rapids for the adventurous duckier, but these rapids are also easily skirted by those who are just learning. Kids under 15 may need to ride in a Ducky with an adult. All participants will receive a thorough briefing before the trip to learn paddling and maneuvering techniques and well as self-rescue tips in case things don’t go as planned.
