Put together the two best activities near Breckenridge. Start with our Idaho Springs Cliffside Zipline Tour, perched above our Outpost on a 9-acre wooded and mountainous spot. After a scenic nature hike to get to the start of the course, take on six zips of varying length through the trees and cliffs before crossing over Chicago Creek for an exhilarating finish. After a break for lunch, the Clear Creek Beginner Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting trip tackles eleven family-level rapids as you paddle your way through a small scenic gorge on the Creek.  The perfect option for all ability levels!  This trip is not run in a particular order. You may zipline then raft or vice versa. . A lunch break is included in this trip giving you time to head into Idaho Springs (5 min walk or 2 min car ride) to grab food at one of the great restaurants. Or bring your lunch and enjoy your picnic on our creekside deck.  See the Idaho Springs zipline tour on Google Satellite map.

You may choose to forgo the lunch break and go non-stop from one adventure to the other.
