Whitewater Rafting in August


At Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting, our River trip pricing varies depending on the trip you take, but right now we have some great river trip discounts on some of our most popular rafting trips!

The rivers near Breckenridgehave great whitewater trips for experienced paddlers and people just starting out.  The best time of year to go white water rafting is during the summer months when the snow has melted and the runoff brings the water levels up (late May through August).  In higher altitudes there is a longer waiting period for the snow to melt and these late season run-offs are the source of some of the greatest white water trips in the world.  Determining when and where to go rafting can seem like a difficult task, but at Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting we can help you find the perfect rafting trip.  Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting has trips on 8 different rivers near Breckenridge and each one can  offer a different experience throughout the spring and summer months.
