Whitewater Rafting in Colorado
Whitewater Rafting in Colorado’s pristine, rushing rivers is an experience that can’t be beat!

Look to Colorado Adventure Center for exciting whitewater rafting adventures for every experience level, from scenic floats where you get a chance to view wildlife or sit quietly listening to nature, to heart-stopping whitewater rafting trips with crashing waves and heart-pumping paddling. Some trips offer both in one day!

You can go rafting in Colorado with us on the most popular rivers in the central part of the state. Our convenient locations along I-70 allow you to pick the best trip for your group, whether it’s for a half-day, full-day or even just a short whitewater rafting adventure in Colorado.

As one of the early outfitters to take guests paddling on Clear Creek, we have a special affection for this waterway’s narrow, technical nature. The Creek shoots out of the Colorado mountains high atop the Continental Divide and rushes toward Denver at a steady clip. It’s rafting in Colorado as you’d expect it — exhilarating and stunning at the same time.

Next up is the mighty Colorado River, source of life and fun for thousands of miles around. Near the headwaters, or “source,” of the Colorado River is a quiet, beautiful place called Little Gore Canyon.
