This was our first rafting experience and we loved it! Patrick was a great guide and was absolutely wonderful with the kids that were in our group. They were also very accommodating of my dad with his bad shoulder, they made it so that he would enjoy the trip immensely also. We will definitely take a rafting trip with BCR... More

Had a wonderful time on the Arkansas river doing a category III rapid with my kids (ages 7 & 9). I was a little nervous, but felt like they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable with the kiddos onboard. They had a separate guide on another boat following us down the river. I can't say for... More

Family of four had a great experience on the Arkansas River at Browns Canyon with The Adventure Company. Shane was our raft captain; he was very knowledgeable, personable and made it an exceptional experience. The whole team at the The Adventure Company did a fantastic job; always with fun and safety in mind! Along with his fellow captain, Mike, Shane... More

Super awesome! This was my first rafting experience and I had so much fun. The river itself was super fun, lots of rapids and handled really well by my raft guide. I'm so glad this was my first rafting experience, I can't wait to do it again.

Before our experience with Browns Canyon Rafting, our group ranged from people who had never gone rafting to people who have only done class two rapids. With Browns Canyon Rafting our group tackled class four rapids and it was a blast! We had a big group and required multiple rafts but I must say I was very impressed with the... More

So,with the suggestionfrom my brother, we headed to Browns Canyon for the half day rafting trip. What a blast! Had so much fun. Our guide, Nate, took us in his raft bc we were from MI . He was fun and made the trip so worthwhile. I'd do it again. My brother pointed out that rafting next to a highway... More

This was our 2nd rafting experience. This was a class III trip. A nice blend of quiet floating to fun rapids. We felt very safe with our guide and would go again on a higher difficulty course with our teens but this was a good time as we did have some 1st-timers with us. AVA was the company we used... More

Come for the rafting, but stay for an afternoon of climbing, too! Jason was a fantastic guide for our morning rafting. Paul was amazing for our climbing portion of the afternoon. He was super knowledgable and made us novice climbers very comfortable and confident that we would be okay. When my 10 year old daughter decided she was too scared,... More

We came to CO from Mich for a week of different activities, one of which was rafting. We ranged from 14-68. Every one of the staff members were great, experienced, great leadership, and knowledgable. None of us had rafted before, and by half way thru the Browns Canyon 1/2 day we were ready for more. The numbers or pine creek,... More

We had a great time going down Browns Canyon - picturesque and fun with the high water they're having this year. My family of four (young adult & teen with my husband and I) all had a wonderful time. Our guide was entertaining and offered up bits of information on the area we traveled through and kept us safe on... More
