Browns Canyon Intermediate Rafting Trip Half Day

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is a half-day adventure on the Arkansas River in Browns Canyon!

    Browns Canyon National Monument on the Arkansas River is our most popular trip! The unique combination of lots of exciting whitewater, spectacular canyon scenery, great mountain views of some of Colorado’s highest mountains and opportunities to spot wildlife make this the ideal raft trip. Exciting enough for seasoned paddlers, but not too scary for first-timers. You will want to bring your friends and family for epic rapids such as Pinball, Zoom Flume, and Big Drop!

    Choose between: Morning Trip: 8:00 am - 11:45 am or Afternoon Trip: 12:15 pm - 3:45 pm

    Clean water, beautiful scenery and the perfect mild climate. With over 100 miles of whitewater, this river begins on the continental divide, as a patch of melting snow. It gains momentum as it flows past some of the biggest mountains in Colorado benefiting from their abundant snow melt. The Browns Canyon stretch of the Arkansas was recently given national monument status and the river is also known for its Gold Medal fishing.

    We feel that the most important way to help ensure a safe and enjoyable Colorado whitewater raft trip is to have an experienced raft guide controlling your boat. All of our guides are at least in their fourth year of professional guiding. Not only do we have experienced raft guides, but our trips are packed with top quality features!

    Our group had an awesome trip down the Arkansas River. Margo killed it! She was just loose enough, yet in control, which allowed everyone to have a blast. Would we do it again? Heck yes and we’d ask for Margo!

    We so enjoyed this rafting trip!!! Corey was an amazing guide... great sense of humor! He was super informative and kept us all safe while we had an over the top experience. We can’t visit to visit again.

    Mike T. was the best ever river guide. He was patient with us even when we had one Air Force participant that was a "know it all" and was so negative about the river. I would like to come back and do the river again with Mike next year. Hoping that the water will be higher.

    The whole experience is excellent, we had such a wonderful time even it's towards the end of rafting season and the water level is super low, about 320 CFS, our guides are extremely experienced and funny, jokes all the way, watch out for the beaver sharks! We are already talking

    We rafted Browns Canyon in early July and the water was huge! Our guide Randy was so good! He made us comfortable, taught us how to paddle, and made our day! If you raft at this place, ask for Randy!
