Glenwood Springs Short and Mild Rafting Trip

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 50.00
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    We meet at our riverside facility 45 minutes in advance and then depart directly from our facility down the Colorado River. Our experienced guides pilot 16’ rafts capable of carrying 8 guests through roughly 6 miles of beautiful scenery. The most exciting rapid, South Canyon, can be up to class III during June runoff. After about 1.5hrs of float time, it’s just a 12 minute shuttle ride back home, making this the perfect primer to river experiences. Launch site and take out are subject to change due to water conditions but will always contain scenic views and a beautiful Class II float.

    Class Rating: Class II, on the Colorado River, 6+ river miles, departs from our riverfront facility.

    Age/Weight: Minimum age 2, no minimum weight, max weight 375lbs.

    Meeting place: All trips meet at our location in Glenwood Springs, CO, which is about 2.75 hours from DIA, 1 hour from Vail and 1.25 hours from Aspen.

    Thanks for the review. More people should rent duckies, especially in mid summer. It's inexpensive, super fun, you can take all the time you want. There are hot springs to explore and beaches, and the canyon is just beautiful. Thanks for coming out with us!
