The staff at the Adventure Co and the River Lodge were amazingly friendly and accommodating. I have rafted with them and stayed with them several times and will continue to come back! Thank you for endless fun and adventure.

We had an excellent time on our trip with our kids 13 and 8. The river was running low but Evan our guide still made it fun. The full day trip was the right amount of time for our 13 year old but our 8...More

White Water Rafting between Denver & Breckenridge? (17 Replies)
Hi! My family would like to go white water rafting in late July out in Colorado. We will be staying in Breckenridge but have family that would like to go with us staying in Denver. I was told by The Adventure Company that Clear Creek (through Idaho Springs) is too low to provide a quality experience. Anyone know of any other places that would be rather close for both of us? Thanks!

Well kudos to them for being so upfront! Sorry that I cannot be of any help, they would be the ones I would have recommended. Maybe 1FourFun or others might know?
