Adrenaline Rush!
Aug 2021
What an adrenaline rush! My husband and I are both beginner rafters and we were a little nervous, but the instructions that our guide gave us were clear and easy to comprehend. We had a blast!

Great time had by all
Aug 2021
Tyler is a fantastic guide, very personable, and very familiar with the river. It seemed like our raft had more fun than others on the river, as we watched the other rafts take the less exciting route. My girls especially enjoyed stopping and jumping off the high rocks (not so high, really, maybe 12' to 15') into the river.
Ample parking behind the small office sitting directly on HWY 50 in Canon City.

Logistics were easy, and on schedule, for both departure to the river and pick-up afterwards. A smooth operation, and a great day for all.

Awesome!
Aug 2021 • Family
Awesome trip. A small company that can give you experiences like stopping and jumping off of a 15ft. rock into the river. Our guide Anna was outstanding. Don't let the lack of a fancy building fool you this operation is first class. Go for the Royal Gorge trip you will be glad you did.

We've always operated under the premise that our guests did not come here to see a lavish Taj Mahal type facility. You come to see the natural beauty of Colorado's Royal Gorge! We want our focus to be on CUSTOMER SEVICE and RAFTING. Thanks again for adventuring with all of us at the Lost Paddle Rafting Company! We appreciate your business! -Jim & Kelly

This is a small company that can really get to know the group. The guides were experienced and offered a stop to jump into the river and even dinner recommendations. We had a fun afternoon!

Small company is better
Jul 2021 • Solo
This company is smaller than the others meaning you don’t have the boats overfilled with people allowing a more personalized experience. Since there are fewer people we got to get out and cliff jump while other rafts just watched and weren’t allowed. Great, well trained guide who gave easy to follow commands and facts about the area and what we were seeing. Absolutely would choose Lost Paddle again!

Thanks again! There is definately a HUGE advantage to going with a smaller outfit. Swimming stops are just one of the many little things that adds up to make an epic fun adventure for our guests! We're glad you guys had such a great time out there rafting with us! -Jim

Great place to go for a fun rafting trip
Jul 2021 • Friends
It was my first time rafting and they did a good job allowing us to practice certain rowing motions before ever getting to any rapids. Our guide knew a lot of historical facts and fun rafting stories which made the slower parts of the trip a lot more fun. I did end up falling out of the raft, but they got me back on the raft very quick. We went through some great class 3, 4 , and 5 rapids. We ended up doing a 15 ft. Cliff jump too. I was very satisfied with my experience there.

Super duper fun experience!!!
Jul 2021
Super duper fun experience!!! Wonderful staff, they were very professional and welcoming. I really enjoyed being with a smaller company, instead of the large ones that go out in huge groups. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and take it seriously. All the equipment was in great condition, everything felt very safe. 10/10 would recommend!!
