My son and I have frequented Arkansas Valley Adventures at the Granite outpost on more than one occasion and wouldn't adventure with anyone else!!. We like to do multiple excursions when we go so we actually camp out at one of their many available tent sites. What an experience in itself!. Most important is the people who work there. Everyone...

Several close friends and I enjoyed a terrific zip lining and whitewater trip for our July birthdays! We had a blast, and got so much for the money! Hospitality and safety were the main focus of everyone we came in touch with! Erika at the registry couldn't have been more congenial and efficient and was welcoming to all that came... More

We booked the 3/4 day trip as wanted the time on the water, but didn't want to have to leave super early to get to the outpost on time. This worked out perfectly. Didn't meet until noon...so didn't have to rush there in the morning and still have a full trip on the water! We had a great time! Whitney... More

Our first time experience. Our 7 year old was apprehensive but our guide Crunch put him at ease with witty but honest overview of the trip. He was hilarious but very informative and made a team out of us strangers on his raft. All guides were great and they clearly enjoy what they do. Great safety instructions from Ellie. Just... More

On a recent family vacation, this was one of our primary activities. I called to get a quote, made a reservation, changed it, and all in all the support staff was very friendly and helpful. We rafted class 3 rapids on the Blue River just north of Silverthorne. The meeting place was a little sketchy ("meet between mile marker x... More

When we got there to check in, Erika and Kelsey were great. Very pleasant! We also, loved the cabin on the grounds, which was also convenient. Sharon the bus driver to/from the river was great too! Kyle was our guide and he did a great job explaining all of our roles, showing us the technique to paddle and he kept... More

From start to finish everyone in AVA was friendly, happy, and genuinely excited to be doing what they're doing. We had Ken as our tour guide and he had us laughing the entire time. However, I would recommend taking snacks for the bus ride back just because everyone is tired so fueling up after is always good! Would come back... More

Our family of five had an excellent experience. For 2.5 hours we navigated several class 3 Rapids and a headwind, led expertly by our guide Jines. For lunch, the staff prepared fresh chicken fajitas. They were wonderful! After lunch, the remaining stretch of river was somewhat shorter and milder, which was probably a good thing for tiring muscles. It was... More

We experienced the half-day rafting trip in Brown Canyon and stayed in the AVA cabins, and it was truly the highlight of our summer. Kyle was our guide on the river, and he was professional, knowledgeable and made the trip so much fun. Our family is looking forward to coming back next year, and we will certainly refer all of...
