Upper Colorado River Rafting Trips

Located near the headwaters of the Colorado River and the western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Upper Colorado rafting 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 theUpper Colorado River!

Upper Colorado Rafting Half-Day Adventures

This family friendly scenic half-day Colorado white water rafting trip launches at the Pumphouse launch site and we raft to the Radium take out.  We will raft approximately 5.5 miles of mostly Class I/II water, with one Class III rapid.  This trip consists of a beautiful scenic float down to the canyon, and in the canyon is where we will experience most of our rapids.  At the end of the canyon we typically stop at the famous Jump Rock (13 years and older) and Punk Rock (all ages) for a jump into the river for those who are inclined.
