Half day Upper Colorado River Float Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This wonderful Colorado River float trip is a gently flowing section that is inviting to all ages. You’ll encounter a few small rapids as the Colorado River winds through the Gore Range and Mountain Ranchland. This is a relaxing day with time to sunbathe, swim or just relax and enjoy the day on your Colorado River rafting trip. The Colorado float half day trip is available two departures per day. This trip departs from our Kremmling Outpost, where you will check in and load an AVA vehicle for the 30-minute drive to the Colorado River. We run from Pumphouse Recreation Area to Radium on this trip. 

    Listen as your guide provides fascinating history and stories about the surrounding area and points out the historic mining cabins scattered along the riverside. Look for the natural hot spring nestled along the river’s bank and keep an eye out for the many birds and animals that are abundant in the area.  The occasional passenger train will rumble by as sunbathe, slip into the river for a quick swim, or just relax on the raft. Cliff jumping is also an available option with cliff heights ranging from five to twenty-five feet. Don't miss your chance to see some of Colorado most beautiful wildlife while floating through the painted canyon walls.

    I don't think there are weight restrictions. They never asked for any information about weight and I'm a solid 225 lbs. They will just arrange the boat so that weight is pretty evenly distributed. The major thing they let us... More
