This Scenic trip is located only 25 miles north of Vail and is an excellent introduction to rafting or for those wanting to relax and enjoy a remote wilderness river experience. Steeped in Gold Rush history and discovery of the west, the Upper Colorado River is lined with forests which tumble through the White River National Forest towards the river edge. Enjoy outstanding scenery and possible wildlife sightings while floating through spectacular canyons. This trip on the Colorado river includes gentle whitewater and an abundance of swimming opportunities. It is a favorite for those with young children or those who just want to get away from it all. Excellent for anyone interested in the natural history of the area and the beauty of the Rocky mountains. During our family river adventure, our colorful, enthusiastic, and safety conscious guides will entertain the kids with stories of adventure and history of the area and they are looking forward to showing you their amazing office!
