Description: When you picture iconic rafting through the west, this 2-day beginner – intermediate rafting trip comes to mind: large road less sections of water, the California Zephyr railroad going by as we descend through rapids, roaring eagles, and amazing scenery. This tour is one of the best moderate white water rafting trips in Colorado and one of the most amazing trips in the Western US. Pumphouse to Rancho Del Rio is 11.7 miles and serves up two great canyon sections, the famous rapids of Eye of the Needle and Yarmony Rapids, and is the perfect introduction to whitewater rafting! We also float Pumphouse to State Bridge (14 miles) depending upon water levels and run off rates. The minimum age for participants is seven years old, and you can expect the tour to last approximately six to 8 hours on the water with a possible stop at a hot springs as well. On day two we’ll travel farther down the river into breathtaking canyon scenery with opportunities for fly fishing and short hikes from the raft. Price based on 4-person minimum.
