Enjoy the gorgeous scenery of the Colorado River with light paddling work on this relaxing river float tour. Raft down the gentle currents and a few minor rapids as the river winds though mountain ranchland, historic mining cabins, and the painted cliffs of the Gore Range. Stop to swim and sunbathe along the way, or add some more excitement with a optional cliff jumping on this scenic rafting voyage.

Flowing through the rugged Clear Creek Canyon in Colorado, Clear Creek is lined with rough-and-tumble rapids. This whitewater rafting trip takes you through those rapids on a thrilling and beautiful river adventure that’s a far cry from the Canyon’s slow-paced nature walks. A guide is on hand to lead you safely through the rapids, culminating in a one-of-a-kind drop down back-to-back waterfalls, Upper and Lower Beaver Falls.

We had an amazing experience floating the Upper Colorado river with Eric. Eric was fun, informative and serious about safety. We saw Big Horn sheep, antelope and a Bald Eagle and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river.
