Ducky Trip

A Ducky, or Inflatable Kayak, is an exciting way of going down the river! Under the guidance of our river guides, this trip is suitable for anyone in search of adventure. This is an opportunity to have more challenge and freedom than that of a traditional raft trip. With absolutely no previous river experience necessary.  Reserve a single ducky for yourself, or partner up ahead of time and reserve a 2 seat double ducky.

Rafting Trip

This Class II-III paddle provides a thrill or two—like the infamous cemetery rapid—but there’s little chance of bouncing out of your raft. (And if you do, it’s usually nothing more than a refreshing dunk and no-big-deal hoist back into the raft.)  Lounge on the raft or swim in peaceful areas as you wind through the Roaring Fork Valley in Colorado’s high country.  This trip is on the same section of river as the Ducky Trip above, so your colleagues in the duckies will always be nearby.

Horseback Riding

Two hours in the saddle is the ideal way to enjoy the majestic Western Colorado Rocky Mountains!  From the stables, you will climb in elevation and cross a natural mesa meadow which provides opportunities to overlook the Colorado River winding lazily through Glenwood Canyon. As you leave the meadow and continue to ascend, look for wildlife and take in amazing panoramas of aspen groves, cedar forests, and the surrounding mountains and canyons.  Maximum weight restriction of 270 pounds.

E-Bike Rental

This activity allows the most flexibility, or for those who just want to do a short ride.  Walk over to our bike shop, just a 5 minute walk from your hotel, to pick up your E-Bike at anytime that works for you.  There are two great paved trails for a nice out-and-back ride that run through Glenwood Springs.  The E-Bike will allow you to see more in the same amount of time.  For those who would rather pedal a standard bike, those are also an available option with this activity.
