Many travelers choose to try white water rafting in Colorado because the rivers here offer something for everyone, from beginners to high-adventure seekers. The Arkansas River is a classic example of a quintessential Colorado rafting experience. From its headwaters, the Arkansas River delivers more than 100 miles of whitewater, making it the most popular river for rafting in the American West. The peak season to run the Arkansas River is May through September. 

Beginning high in the Rockies, near the Continental Divide, Arkansas River rafting starts as a patch of melting snow in Leadville, Colorado, a city rich in mining history and famous for its 10,200-foot elevation. The Ark (as locals like to call it) gains momentum as it flows past some of the biggest mountains in Colorado, benefiting from their abundant snowmelt in the spring and summer. The river’s appeal lies in its wide variety of trips and easy accessibility from the Town of Buena Vista, Colorado.

All Arkansas River rafting trips come with incredible views of the Colorado Mountains. You’ll grow to love white water rafting on the Arkansas River as everyone else. This is especially true when you choose our white water rafting Arkansas River guiding services. Let us help you plan your next Arkansas river rafting adventure, and we promise you’ll want more!
