Awesome adventure for the whole family. We enjoyed the historical stories that Neal shared with us as he navigated us down the river. Had a fun time paddling along.

We did the zip line / whitewater rafting trip and they were both a lot of fun. We started the day on the zip line course with Maddy and Brandon as guides. They were very focused on safety and we felt very safe the entire time. They took time to explain exactly what was coming and it relieved any anxiety... More

I had a terrible experience with this company. I did the zip-line package. One third of the lines were broken or unusable because of the weather. Meaning we were only able to do 6 out of the 9. We were not offered any kind of refund or discount. They didn’t tell us the lines were down until we were already... More

Travis guided us expertly down the river on our advanced half day excursion. Our bachelor party of five guys was so in sync that he was able to take us through some special maneuvers which elevated the experience. What an absolute blast. Thanks Travis and the whole team at AVA!

My brother, fiancé and I went rafting for the first time here and it was a blast! We went on the intermediate rapids for a 3/4 day trip and it's one of the best things we have done so far in Colorado. The trip actually has a lot less paddling and is more leisurely than we had expected. A good... More

Best Class III/IV trip I've experienced! T2 aka Travis was a great guide. He was experienced and let us have fun! He took us through some awesome IIIs and the canyon of IVs were running great! Good service and experience. I've RR in Utah, Montana and Wyoming and must say this was a well run organization.

We started with the rafting in the morning. Our guide Rob was informative and fun throughout the entire trip. I would definitely recommend. After a lunch break, we did the zip line tour with Cory and Brandon. They were fantastic and so patient. Prior to this, I knew I was scared of heights - I never realized just how bad... More

We did the Zip Line tour and received much more then expected!! The optional courses are worth the effort. Our guides were Brandon and Megan and they were really motivating. Did the bridge jump even with my slight case of Vertigo. The courses are different in strategy and mind perception. Strongly suggest you push your mind and body to the... More

Incredible experience with AVA on our recent trip to Colorado and everyone's first time white water rafting. The guides were terrific with prepping you for what to expect and made it a thrilling and exciting trip from start to finish. Strongly recommend the intermediate versus beginner, even if you haven't rafted before!
