Shoshone Rapids – Fall Special – 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 weight for this trip is 50 pounds, during higher water levels (June & early July) smaller rafters may have to sit out the first 30 minutes where the biggest rapids are located.


This trip departs from our office in Glenwood Springs, CO, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Buena Vista, up and over the beautiful Independence Pass through Aspen, CO.
