Rafting Browns Canyon National Monument, with all its famous rapids, is exciting enough. But put yourself in a nine-foot raft with two other people—one of whom is your guide—and you’ll elevate your river experience to a whole new level!

This half-day Browns Canyon raft trip, filled with poop-your-pants fast Colorado whitewater, is not for the faint of heart. If you want your heart to pound and an experience to remember forever, this is the Colorado whitewater rafting trip for you! Beware… you’ll have to paddle hard through the rapids, and you will get wet.

Cool fact: The Upper Arkansas Valley between Salida and Buena Vista, with it sheltering mountains and dry air, is known as the “Banana Belt.” Due to its topography, the area enjoys milder weather than other communities along the I-70 corridor.
