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.
