River Rafting in Colorado is one of the most enjoyable and exciting summer activities available. There are trips for all ability levels, Class I – V, throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
Vail offers up some of the best rafting in the country. Enjoy a sun-drenched float through the high desert canyons of the Colorado Plateau, or rushing whitewater rafting in the infamous Gore Canyon of the Colorado River. Whatever the level of adventure you’re seeking, rafting in Vail will satisfy your appetite. From first-timers to experienced rafters, you'll find it here.
All trips include state-of-the-art equipment, including wetsuits, booties, life jackets, and splash jackets. Helmets are provided for Class III – V trips. Just bring your bathing suit, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Don’t forget a waterproof camera! Brochures and information for half-day, full-day, or longer rafting trips are available by calling the Colorado River Outfitters Association at (303) 280-2554.
