Heading to Colorado This Summer?  

The Best Rafting in Colorado

With all the great whitewater rivers in Colorado, it can be a challenge to pinpoint the best one for rafting. You must first qualify the type of Colorado whitewater rafting experience you want. Are you looking for challenging class V rafting, a family float, or something in between? Do you want a shorter outing, a full day whitewater adventure or an overnight rafting trip? Is convenience important or do you seek solitude? You can find all of this and more on Colorado’s Arkansas River.

Colorado Whitewater Rafting on the Arkansas River

The Arkansas River Headwaters is north of Leadville, Colorado near Fremont Pass. From there it runs southeast through the Colorado rafting towns of Buena Vista, Salida, and Canon City. A majority of the Arkansas River’s water comes from snowpack, so the highest flows occur in June and early July, but monsoonal weather patterns and a Voluntary Flow Management program carry the Arkansas River rafting season through August and Labor Day.

The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) manages more than 150 miles of the Arkansas River from Leadville to Canon City, Colorado. This stretch offers the most continuous whitewater in the state with everything from family-friendly rafting to steep and challenging class V whitewater. Some of the most famous rafting in Colorado is found on the Arkansas River. This includes the Numbers, the Browns Canyon, the Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Royal Gorge.

The Whitewater Professionals

Many private rafters and kayakers float the Arkansas River every year, but if you don’t have the required equipment and experience it is essential to hire a whitewater professional. River Runners has guided rafting trips on the Arkansas River since 1972. Choose from two rafting locations: the River Runners Royal Gorge Rafting Center near Canon City, Colorado; and the River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort near Buena Vista, Colorado. Both Colorado rafting destinations are an easy and scenic drive from Colorado Springs and Denver.
