If a full day of aquatic exploration is what you desire, our full-day white water rafting trips on the Upper Colorado River are highly recommended. Designed for those seeking both thrilling rapids like The Eye of the Needle and Yarmony Falls and a comprehensive outdoor experience, this adventure allows you to indulge in activities such as fly fishing and cliff jumping. Ideal for family fun or larger groups, many guests transform their Upper Colorado River rafting into a multi-day excursion, either spending two days on the river or opting for our multi-sport package, which includes fly fishing, rock climbing, camping, mountain biking, and hiking.

As official concessionaires of Rocky Mountain National Park, our camping and backpacking trips around Estes Park and Grand Lake often incorporate a one or two-day rafting extension on the Upper Colorado River.

For those in the Denver, Boulder, or Front Range area, join us on the Clear Creek River for thrilling whitewater adventures or a shorter 1/3 day experience. In 2024, take advantage of our Boulder Colorado Rafting Hotel Package, combining lodging with an exciting rafting experience.
