      Had a blast
      Had a blast rafting down the gorge! The guide pointed out different features of the gorge and the history of the area as we paddled down, and had us well prepared for all of the rapids. I would highly recommend this experience!

      It was honestly the most fun thing I’ve ever done. My leaders name was Jude he was one of the most fun people I’ve met so I think it is a great opportunity for a great time want to get a little wet and have fun come here(you don’t have to get super wet it just makes the trip that much better.

      Must Do in Cañon City
      I highly recommend Lost Paddle Rafting for any whitewater rafting you might be interested in! We had a group of 12 and we were split between 2 rafts. Our rafts guide was Steven and we absolutely loved him! He loved the water and wanted everyone else to enjoy it the way he did:) One in our group had never been rafting and Steven made him feel safe. By the end, he even wanted to do it again! So thank you Lost Paddle Rafting and Steven! I will be back!

      Best Rafting Company in Colorado
      My Family and I's Trip was Awesome, The water levels on Royal Gorge were high and I was very anxious about going on the Royal Gorge river trail and RGR let us go on the Big Horn Sheep Canyon river trail at no charge. Our Guide V was awesome, very nice, and kept My Family and I safe while we still had a ton a fun. I would highly recommend and requst V as she is the best rafting guide in RGR.

      Great trip with an awesome company!
      What a great experience we had with our guide Chris. He was very professional in the delivery of his instructions and safety briefing. He was knowledgeable about the area and the sights along the way. His expertise shined through as he safely and successfully led us through the class 4 and 5 sections of the trip. I would highly recommend Lost Paddle Rafting and ask for Chris!!

      Awesome Experience
      Went when the water was high, so the rapids were big and fast; Hunter did an excellent job of guiding our first raft with clear signals and timely navigation. Our second boat had some people fall out, and Hunter had us in position to pick them up as they came down river toward us. We felt safe and in control with him guiding us. Clearly an experienced rafter, which was good, as none in our raft had done it before and the rapids were class 4-5. Would definitely use again should we go.

      Jake was a great guide and handled the more intense rapids very well and Josie was a great Kayaker and helped many people get back to their boats and flip them back over!

      Highly recommend!!
      Chris our guide was so responsible and looked after our safety during our high water run of the royal gorge. We hit several class IV and V rapids during this trip. Absolutely thrilling. He pointed out historical sites of interest, had fun with our group and was just an overall nice guy. Would absolutely recommend him as a guide. Hunter was in the safety kayak and was primarily focused on our safety. He too was a super nice guy. In fact everyone we met at Lost Paddle was phenomenal. I believe it is a small family owned operation. It may not be fancy and glitzy but they know what they are doing. If out in Colorado and want to get some white water rafting in, you won’t be disappointed with Lost Paddle. Highly recommend.

      This is my 3rd trip down the Royal Gorge with Lost Paddle. I have tried other companies but they didn't compare. They are personal, fun, and very safety conscious. Their guides are the best! I will continue to take visitors to Lost Paddle and recommend them to anyone who asks!

      Amazing trip! Weather was very cold so renting the wetsuit is a must! Everyone was extremely friendly. Our guide Steve was the best!

    So much fun!
    We’ve rafted in the past in California, but this was our first class three rapids! Andrew (the one with curly blonde hair) was our guide and he was so funny but also very knowledgeable about the rapids. I loved this company versus the others in town because it felt smaller and more local. We were not crowded on the bus there and we had a raft to our own party of family members.
    Definitely recommend and we hope to visit again in the future!

    Sierra was the best! We took four kiddos ages 9-7 in 47 degree weather. Sierra was outstanding at guiding the trip and knew stories about the route to keep the kiddos engaged. Thank you for the great experience!

    Had a great time with Andrew our guide. It was the family's first time rafting and Andrew gave great instructions and was very friendly and fun. The half day trip was easy even for a 10 year old and everyone wanted to do it again but with bigger rapids. I highly recommend Lost Paddle Rafting, even though Andrew was our guide we had the chance to meet a few others and they were all very friendly as well. I don't think there is a bad guide there!

    The office staff were very helpful each time I contacted them by phone. Andrew our guide worked very hard to keep us safe. The things that made me rate the company average was location and condition of equipment. You must park behind the building in a gravel lot. To get there, there is very uneven roadway and you must drive carefully to avoid holes. The jackets were smelly and the helmets seemed very worn. The raft we were on was patched, but had no problem staying afloat.
    According to Andrew the water level was low, I guess that was why this seemed more like float than white water rafting. Good experience for people who want to enjoy the surroundings. This was mostly train tracks with abandon RR cars on one side and road traffic on the other.
    I have White water rafted on the New River in West Virginia and maybe that is why this was disappointing.We were in nature the entire trip. For young families and people who have a fear of rafting this might be a good choice.I know this company was cheaper than the others, if that helps you make a decision.

    My husband and I booked this rafting trip and it was the best. Connor was our guide and he was excellent he was fun and informative. He gave us the experience we were hoping for. We arrived at the business around 8:15 and everyone was friendly and helpful. They offered wetsuits and splash jackets because of the water temperature it was about 55 degrees and this was in June. We opted for just the splash jacket. Everyone was friendly and professional and seemed to really enjoy the job. The weather was good a little overcast but no rain. You really didn’t have time for pictures so having a photographer there was appreciated. Even though I thought they might be little expensive we bought them because we won’t be back this way again. I also really enjoyed the people on the raft with us. I think we all had a great time. After we arrived back at the business there is a bar and grill there so we dried off changed clothes and had lunch. We enjoyed everything about this place. I highly recommend booking any of the activities they have at the Royal Gorge Rafting company. Thanks again to CONNOR for making the day so memorable.

    So much fun! My husband and I took our 12 year old on the Bighorn half-day rafting adventure and had such a great time with Sierra as our guide. It was great to have our "own" boat and enough current that, even with some serious head wind at the end, were able to paddle without a ton of effort (exactly what we were looking for). They put in before anyone else that afternoon which was really great as there are MANY rafting companies in Canyon City and being first for the second half of the day meant we were never in a traffic jam of boats. Fun, casual vibe in the store/staging area which is VERY near the Starbucks so grabbing a coffee before the trek was easy. Really great group and highly recommend.

    OMG Incredible! This company may be smaller then others in the area but sometimes, smaller is better!!! The staff was super nice and very informative of our needs and others on our trip. Our guide Adalaide made our trip fun and exciting to where I just booked our Royal Gorge trip for this weekend. I have been wanting to do this trip but was a little nervous so my husband and I tried the Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip first. At the end of our trip, we both knew we wanted to do this again before our son comes home from his grandparents. Then later this summer, we will take him out on his first rafting trip with Lost Paddle. If you are looking for an incredible rafting adventure but not sure who to book, I highly suggest Lost Paddle. I promise you, you wont be disappointed!!!!!!

    We had a great trip rafting the Big Horn Sheep Canyon with Aidalade and Lost Paddle We were the only two people on the raft with the guide and therefore able to get a lot of individual instruction and information. It was our first trip on the Arkansas River and we are looking forward to another trip with Lost Paddle. I recommend this company to anyone interested in a rafting in the area.

    Fantastic. This company is the little guy you want to support.

    First off, let’s talk safety. Ask my wife and she’ll tell you I’m the first one to throw that crap out the window and just go for it. Not lost paddle. Helmets & life jackets were first priority and they took the time to make sure everything fit the way it should. We saw another rafting company out that stopped to take a swim. One of their guests got a little panicked and they had to pull him out of the water. His life jacket slipped right off so I got to see first hand WHY the Lost Paddle team take it seriously. I was thankful for that unplanned demonstration by the other company for both me and my two kids.

    Our guide Will was awesome and knowledgeable about the river. He shared info and stories that were interesting and useful and was good at taking charge when it was time for all of us to maneuver the boat.

    Worth the money and they’ll be getting our business next time we’re though Canyon City.

    This was such a fun experience! My kids and I had a great time. The staff was all super friendly and very knowledgeable about the river. Their concern about everyones safety was very comforting to my kids, who were both a little nervous. Our guide tyler was amazing! We had an excellent time! Recommend this place for sure!!!
