Fall Rafting Options
September 16th, 2015
Fall is in the air! The beautiful aspens scattered throughout the state are beginning to paint a beautiful scene, and the temperatures are continually adding a chill to the air. Football has begun and it’s about time to trade your chacos out for sorels. Despite the end of summer, there are still plenty of opportunities to raft before the snow begins to fall. AVA Rafting & Zipline is prepared to offer fall rafting trips through October! All you have to do is pick the best trip for you.
Looking for a leisurely trip that perfect for the entire family? Look no further than the Half Day Upper Colorado River Float Trip! This 6-mile float trip is great for kids as young as 2 years old and, just like every rafting trip with AVA, it includes wetsuits and splash jackets free of charge! Spend between 1 ¾ and 2 ½ hours on the scenic route, floating down the Colorado with family and friends. Wanting to spend more time out on the river? Check out the Full Day Float Trip for about 5-6 hours of river time!
Another great fall rafting trip is the ½ or Full Day Inflatable Kayak Trip. Inflatable kayaks, also known as duckies, put you in the driver’s seat of your own personal raft. The full day trip is suitable for ages 10 and up and also includes lunch on the riverside. If you are ready for a 10-14 mile trip lasting 5-6 hours, this is the one for you! If you need something a little shorter, try the ½ Day Inflatable Kayak Trip for a 1 ¾ – 2 ½ hour trip down 6 miles of the Colorado River.
The Colorado River also makes for an excellent stand-up paddleboarding trip! Join us on a ½ Day SUP trip down the Upper Colorado for a nice and easy 6 mile float. This trip is great for ages 13+ and provides gently class II riffles and flat water for the entirety of the trip, around 2 hours.
So, half of your group wants to do a kayak trip, a few want to stand-up paddleboard, and the rest want to raft? No problem! On these Upper Colorado scenic float trips, everyone can go along in each of the different raft types! Call our sales agents today to book your trip: 800-370-0581
