Fantastic raft trip on the upper Roaring Fork from Snomass to Basalt, it seemed like non-stop fast and exciting whitewater. After a good riverside lunch with delicious homemade cookies, we paddled kayaks from Basalt to Carbondale. 3+ hours on the river, about 18 miles; 2 teenage boys and Dad had great time. We highly recommend this trip; we thought it... More

Great family outing today on the river with Ryan. Everything ran smoothly and we all had a fun time together. Ryan made the experience a real adventure for our teens and adult kids. Highly recommend!

We went on the family friendly express trip down the lower Roaring Fork River into the Colorado River. Molly was an excellent guide and really fun to ride with! We have a four year old and there were a few other kids on the boat too, one as young as two! We felt totally safe with Molly and we still... More

Ryan and Molly are awesome! They offer rafting trips that the big rafting companies won't do. Ryan was our guide on the crystal river and it was great! We were the only raft on the water, it was fast and fun. The water was moving so fast that he let us do it twice for the full experience. Not only... More

Thanks, you're awesome too! We do have lots of options that no other companies offer. The Crystal River is one of those great choices. We pick up at the KOA, Avalanche Ranch, and other locations throughout the local area. More

Our family loved the rafting tour today with Ryan! We have 3 kids- ages 10, 9 and 6 and the challenge was perfect for our kids. Ryan was very knowledgeable and we felt we were in great, experienced hands. I'd highly recommend for any family visiting the Glenwood Springs area.

Ryan was awesome and the experience was beautiful. We love his profile on his brochure. Down to earth and very knowledgeable about the river and Colorado. Just my boyfriend and I were on the trip and it was so delightful.

We can offer trips to as little as one person because we are small, and owner operated. Several times throughout the year couples are able to experience a raft to themselves! More

Our trip was on Memorial Day weekend and it was just right for us and the kids. The guys really tailored it to our family, but still got plenty of rapids. Would ride again.

We entered the river at our resort, the Avalanch Ranch. We were a party of 3, me, my wife, and 14 year old son. Ryan (owner and guide) gave good instructions on how to be safe. They had all the right gear including wetsuits, boots, jackets, life jackets, and helmets. The river was running fast due to the spring melt,... More

Both times Ryan was the guide and we had a great time. They have all the gear you'll need - wetsuit, wet... More

Whether it is your first trip or another of many, UpTheCreek Rafting is amazing. If you're a novice, Ryan will put you at ease and build your confidence. You'll be hooked. If you're an experienced rafter you will have a blast. We are definitely coming back!
