Glenwood Canyon Shoshone Rapids Half Day – Glenwood Springs

Adventure Overview

Glenwood Canyon Shoshone Rapids

Located in spectacular Glenwood Canyon, this beautiful, pristine stretch of water offers unbelievable Rocky Mountain scenery and a perfect mix of calm water and whitewater. This is a great introduction to rafters with a sense of adventure! Our Glenwood Canyon / Shoshone rapids is our most popular trip.

This trip includes Class II-IV whitewater and requires no previous rafting experience. The Shoshone Class III-IV rapids offer the whitewater enthusiast a two-mile stretch of exciting but not intimidating rapids. A guide favorite with interesting geology, gorgeous scenery, and some fun whitewater! Depending on weather and water levels, there are also opportunities to take a dip and swim!

Although the minimum age is 8, during higher water levels (June & early July) the minimum age may bump up to 12 and smaller rafters may have to sit out the first 30 minutes where the biggest rapids are located.

During peak run off periods (Mid June), the water levels may be too high to operate the trip safely, if this is the case we would seamlessly move you to a different section of river with more appropriate conditions.  During peak flows, other river sections that are normally a calmer float, come up to unique fun level that provides an exciting trip.
