Experience the excitement of a whitewater rafting adventure on this guided, 3-hour excursion. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time, then ride along Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River. Challenge Class III-IV rapids including Baptism, Tuttle's Tumble, The Wall, Tombstone, Superstition and more. All the necessary rafting equipment, including a life jacket and helmet, are included.
What to Expect
By far our most popular trip, this 3 hour rafting trip meets at our river front facility. Heading up river about 9 miles to the Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River, we get off to an exciting start as we navigate the class III-IV rapids including The Wall, Tombstone, Maneater, Superstition, and many more. The river gradually begins to mellow out and your guide will educate you on the incredible history of Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River. At lower flows, natural hot springs flow right into the river and we can stop and soak. Your trip will end right back at our private river ramp at our facility, where you can walk from the raft to a warm shower, to your car and belongings, and immediately view photos from your trip.

Bucket List Adventure!

Everything was top-notch, from booking to pick-up, cost, value, training, etc. Wear water shoes or sandals with straps. If you did not bring these on your trip, you can rent booties from them, which is what we did. I highly recommend booking with Whitewater Rafting...More
