Why Choose Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting

Nobody Knows Breckenridge Better.

If you’re looking for an authentic Breckenridge experience, there’s no better outfitter in the state to trust. With years of experience on our rivers, highly-trained river guides and support staff, and a dedication to our local community, Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting is an institution in Rocky Mountain adventure.

The BWR Promise

At BWR, we pride ourselves on our collective responsibility to share the great outdoors in and around Breckenridge. The BWR Promise is made up of 3 core principles:


We promise to provide a seamless, safe, outdoor experience whether it’s running class IIII rapids in Buena Vista, or hanging from the side of the mountain in Idaho Springs. All our guides go through extensive in-house training on all of our rivers and courses, even more than required by the state.

Environmental Stewardship

Operating in, and sharing Colorado’s unique and pristine wilderness is one of our greatest privileges. That privilege comes with the responsibility of also being a proper steward of these natural resources. That’s why BWR and our parent company work with our community partners to help clean our rivers yearly while donating resources to our local communities, non-profits, and other local organizations.

Real Adventure

If you’re not having a good time, what’s the point? At BWR, we promise to show you what a REAL Colorado adventure looks like. Our unique trips are all designed to give you the best possible experience, whether you’re navigating boulders on your first Colorado whitewater rafting trip, or strapped to some granite 500ft above the ground on our exclusive via ferrata courses. We wouldn’t waste our time dragging you through any tour we didn’t enjoy ourselves.

Rooted in the River

Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting has a long and storied history of providing premier and memorable outdoor experiences in Colorado. For 32 years, we’ve been exploring and running guests down the various rivers surrounding Breckenridge.
