Suitable for beginners and repeat enthusiasts that just want to have a wonderful full day on the river surrounded by incredible scenery, great company and some fun river toys. A scenic trip with limited whitewater, a perfect adventure for those who just want to get away from it all and experience Colorado at its best.
A guided scenic trip with a little whitewater thrown in. An excellent opportunity to experience the multiple rivers that our spectacular valley has to offer. Begin your day rafting down the Scenic Roaring Fork River. The Roaring Fork River runs 70 miles from Independence Pass through Aspen, Basalt, and Carbondale until it reaches its confluence with the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs. We begin our adventure in Carbondale under the Majestic Mount Sopris. The Ute Indians called it “Thunder River” no doubt from the roaring sound it makes during spring runoff. Many species of wildlife rely on the river corridor for their survival, making it a great place to view elk, bald eagles, osprey, great blue herons, moose, mule deer, and more.
Following a spectacular float down The Fork as the Locals call it, you will merge into the famous Colorado River where we will stop for a wonderful riverside lunch. After lunch, you will have opportunities to relax and enjoy some river toys (duckies and paddle boards). As you progress down the river, surrounded by interesting geology, gorgeous scenery, and some fun whitewater. Swimming opportunities abound when the warm air makes the cool river very inviting. Whitewater rafting has a way of bringing out the best in people. This beautiful canyon offers families, groups, first-timers, and even experienced whitewater rafting enthusiasts the perfect adventure.
