Roaring Fork Half Day
Escape the crowds and enjoy a beautiful, pristine stretch of water that has unbelievable Rocky Mountain scenery. A perfect mix of calm water and whitewater. The float offers incredible views of 13,000 ft. Mount Sopris, interesting geology, possible sightings of bald eagles and other wildlife, and fun class II/III whitewater.
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.) Meander through gentle Class II and low Class III rapids, and calm, relaxing pools. Lounge on the boats or swim in peaceful areas as you wind through the Roaring fork Valley in Colorado’s high country. A world renowned Gold Medal fishing area and local favorite.
The perfect adventure for families, beginner rafters, or anyone interested in the natural history of the valley!
This trip departs from our office located in Glenwood Springs, which is about a 45 minute drive from Avon (Beaver Creek). Since Glenwood Springs is lower in elevation than Vail and Beaver Creek, the temperatures are great for rafting through the fall season.
