Located near the headwaters of the Colorado River and the western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Upper Colorado River trips are perfect for those who want beautiful Canyon scenery and easy-to-navigate whitewater. You’ll see spectacular wildflowers, sheer granite canyon walls, and forest of blue spruce and Douglas fir trees. First-time boaters and families with children give trips on this river rave reviews.

All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. View a sneak peak of the Upper Colorado River!

Clear Creek, which drops from the mountains just west of Denver Rafting, provides a fun and challenging white water rafting experience. The river traverses past ponderous pine, juniper, and Douglas fir tree forests before tumbling through the old mining town of Idaho Springs.

Our Clear Creek Colorado whitewater rafting trips will potentially see wildlife such as big horn sheep and the occasional bear.

Our Clear Creek rafting office is just 30 minutes from Denver, 45 minutes from Winter Park, and 1-1/4 hours from Boulder with easy access from Winter Park, Fraser, Grand Lake, Breckenridge, Vail, Denver, and Estes Park. View a sneak peak video of a Clear Creek trip in action!

Continental Divide Tour

Explore the vast terrain in Winter Park’s Arapahoe National Forest with our Continental Divide Tour. We depart from our convenient location in Winter Park and ride 15 miles up the historic Corona Pass road to the Continental Divide and Rollins Pass at nearly 12,000ft in elevation. You will drive your own machine on the tour while following one of our guides. This trip includes breathtaking panoramic views of the Continental Divide, Rocky Mountains, and the Fraser Valley. We will pass by the historic railroad train trestle that used to operate as a 23 mile long railroad over Rollins Pass. There will be multiple opportunities for enjoying the views, taking pictures, and occasionally a short hike up top the Continental Divide.
