If you are planning to try water rafting in Colorado, be sure to consider where you will be traveling from, the time of the year, and what you are wanting to get out of your experience. The melting mountain snow in May and June makes some rivers run faster, but don’t let this fool you as a novice rafter can still enjoy the river this time of year. The rivers tend to be milder in August and September as temperatures drop and snow falls at higher altitudes. Regardless of the time of year, we have many options convenient to your Colorado home base.
