When in Colorado, one must get out on the river! The popular past time of whitewater rafting sweeps the state every summer, and locals and visitors come together each year to take on the rapids. However, Colorado has a lot more to offer than the most amazing whitewater in the country. Check out these five activities you can combo with your rafting trip and make your time in Colorado one to remember.
To be honest, ziplining gives you incredible views of the Colorado Rockies without the long trek up the mountains. Many like to hike their way up or climb to 14,000+ foot summits, but you can catch similar views and bring the whole family on a ziplining excursion. Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting has plenty of Raft + Zip packages… check them out!
Horseback riding is another awesome adventure that you can add to a rafting trip. Ranging from 1 to 4 hours in length, these trips will have you venturing through the backcountry via horseback after you navigated some whitewater. One of the most popular adventure packages with Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting is our Saddle and Paddle. Book one today!
The ultimate aerial adventure is here, and we call it the Via Ferrata. It’s kind of like ziplining, then add on some traversing the cliffside, rock climbing, rappelling, and a combination of mountaineering activities. If you’ve been ziplining before, this is your next step. And when you pair it with rafting, you’re set up for an awesome day in the mountains.
Have you ever been interested in trying your hand navigating the rock face, but you don’t have the means to do so? Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting will set you up with all the gear and knowledge you need for a successful rock climbing mission. If you’ve already spent your fair share of time on the rock face, tell your guide and they will direct you to a more difficult pitch.
The last adventure that goes great with rafting is fly fishing. Float down the Colorado River on one of Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting’s 4 hour tours. Our experienced guides know exactly where the trout are biting. We can’t guarantee that you’ll catch a monster, but we promise you’ll have a great morning on the river.
You can venture just over an hour from Breckenridge to indulge in all of these adventures. Book your action-packed day with Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting today! Don’t miss some of our current deals, either.
