Colorado Rafting Adventures

Located in the Arkansas River Valley, we’re the premier Colorado river rafting outfitter. The Arkansas River flows through Colorado’s favorite whitewater rafting destination in Browns Canyon National Monument. The Arkansas River valley is a major hub for rafting and is situated along the Collegiate Peaks Scenic Byway.

We’re located at roughly 8,000 feet elevation. The river flows during spring and summer months with the melting snow from the surrounding mountains. This is America’s number one rafting destination with a variety of river adventures from Mild to wild. 

Browns Canyon surrounds a section of the Arkansas River. The canyon has beautiful granite walls that tower over the river and provides memorable rafting adventures. Browns Canyon has miles of continuous class II, III, & IV rapids. We invite you to take the plunge on America’s favorite Colorado rafting river. 

Colorado Rafting Adventures is in Nathrop, CO. Nathrop was a popular railroad stop in the 1800s. Visitors sought to soak their bones in the natural hot springs. Our River base is a short 5 to 10 minute drive to the famous Hot Springs. You can still dip into geothermal waters at the Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort.  Nathrop is bookended between the two towns Buena Vista, Spanish for “good view,” and Salida literally the “Heart of the Rockies”. Nathrop was historically a stagecoach stop and later a stopover on the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad.

We take pride in our reputation and we provide friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Many of our guests return year after year. Trust us, your experience will leave you wanting to come back for more!
