The trip begins with a picnic lunch at our Buena Vista outpost. From here, you’ll launch into the Arkansas River where you’ll immediately hit class III rapids. After surfing Colorado whitewater, you’ll continue into Browns Canyon to camp for the night. Here, you’ll enjoy a scrumptious dinner prepared by your guide

After coffee and breakfast (yep, that’s prepared for you, too), you’ll encounter Browns Canyon’s classic rapids Zoom Floom, Staircase, and Seidel’s Suckhole. KODI’s cheese tortellini lunch will then be served alongside the river, after which you’ll continue down to the take-out at Stone Bridge. Take-out time is approximately 3 pm. Trip includes all use fees, 4 meals, and an overnight gear bag and we will have a camp chair for you.
