Owner description: Elk Mountain Expeditions (EME) opened its doors in 2012 with the intent to bring a more personalized experience to the rafting industry. After 10 years working with many large rafting companies around the country we decided to start a company that is free of all the problems that accompany big business rafting. Smaller trips with highly trained guides, no hidden fees, and attention to detail set us apart from other companies in the valley. At EME, we are dedicated to providing excellent customer experiences on and off the water. Come out and see the difference a passionate and dedicated team of employees can make on your next river adventure. We are excited to share Aspen's beautiful rivers with you and your family.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We recently went on a kayak trip with Elk Mtn. Expeditions. From start to finish it was great. These guys were on time, organized, informative, safe, and fun! They had a genuine interest in everyone having a great time. We took our disabled nephew and they were great with him. I highly recommend EME!

“BEST RAFT TRIP EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

These guys know their stuff! Lang, James and Kevin were fantastic guides. From the very first phone call to book the trip, they were professional and fun. Everything we needed was provided for the trip. We had a very informative safety talk first that was also quite funny, then floated down the river, enjoyed the beauty while James told us about the wild life, trees and a facts about the area. Half way down we stopped for a snack. I can't recommend these young men enough for your float trip. You will have a great day.

“100% SATIFACTION!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

My husband and I took a white water rafting trip down the Roaring Fork River and would highly recommend this new business. The young men who own the company were highly competant making us feel completely safe. They were prompt, courteous, and entertaining. At our mid point break, fresh fruit and water were provided as well as beverages at the conclusion of the trip. The transportation bus and rafting supplies (which they provided) were in excellent condition. A DVD of the entire trip was available to purchase for a minimal fee. We hope to return in the fall and will definitely book another trip. GOOD LUCK TO THESE YOUNG MEN!

“Crystal River Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Elk Mountain Expeditions lived up to their word! The Class II/III rapids of the Crystal River provided our family with the perfect 'first-time' experience. Everything about this trip was top notch. The staff was exceptional and provided everything (at no additional cost) one could possibly need to make the adventure absolutely perfect. The company is new, therefore all of their equipment is in perfect condition. The safety briefing beforehand was very informative, and they take pride in making sure everyone is comfortable before rafting. I truly believe this was one of our favorite excursions, and we travel a lot and have engaged in many different adventures. They even provided us with a CD ($1o) that included multiple snapshots as we headed down the river and through the rapids. If you are staying in Aspen, or nearby, take the time to check out what Elk Mountain Expeditions, in Carbondale, has to offer. They are just a short 30 minute drive from Aspen. We were told the city bus also provides transportation at a very small cost if you do not have a rental car. Ask about their special rates and be sure to check them out first. The whole experience was awesome....you will not be disappointed. A big Texas thanks to the staff....Lang,James, Kevin and Elly. This adventure was the highlight of our trip!
