We traveled from Beaver Creek to Granite with our children (ages 10, 9 & 8) for our Brown's Canyon rafting trip. A bit of a drive, but definitely worth it. Lakota employees were kind and informative. Colin was our guide, as well as the one who gave pre-rafting instruction to our entire group of 24 people. During the instruction time,... More

We had a mixed bag of ages for our group of 10, ranging from 6-40. The first part of the rapids were not suitable for the little ones so one of the tour guides took them on the bus for us to meet them down the river while the older ones in our group got to enjoy the class 3... More

Had an awesome time rafting with these guys with a largely green group for my bachelor party. High quality gear for all shapes and sizes and we felt like we were in good hands the whole way through. Seasoned guides knew their stuff inside and out and we even got a little history lesson on the way up to the... More

We have been on a few raft on the Shoshone. Lakota guides and owner were awesome! I definitely recommend them! From pick up to drop off the day is great. The ride is a class III in the beginning then runs into a class II for the rest of the trip - you can jump out of the boat and... More

We are visiting Avon, CO and drove to Granite, CO; Lakota was worth the drive! Our guide Dane was AWESOME! He was very informative and made sure we knew all of the techniques before hitting the level 3 with our 9 and 10 year olds. He helped ease the mind of our hesitant daughter and eager son. Dane took the... More

Two MBA college classmates and I did the Numbers AM ride this past Friday and had a blast. Driver Joe and guide Kieper picked us up promptly at 7:30am at The Lodge in Vail, and drove us up to their office up past Minturn where we suited up and did our safety overview. We were then joined by Andy who... More

We did the Shoshone am run with the Guides. This trip also has the taco bar to look forward to at the end. Our guide was very friendly and we had a very good time running the river. This run has Class III rapids to start and then mellows into Class IIs and below. It was a great trip to... More

From pick-up to drop-off, Jeremiah and the Lakota team provided a first-class rafting experience. Asked some good questions and got our group matched up with the Class 4 Numbers run on the Arkansas river. During the hour drive through scenic CO back-country, we got a great history of the area and all of our rafting questions answered. At the Lakota... More

5 of my family members vacationed in Beaver Creek, CO last week. We asked our hotel, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek to help us plan some activities. They booked a 1/2 day White Water Rafting trip after visiting with us about it. I am not a thrill seeker, don't do roller coasters, don't like heights, but I was ready for the... More
