Whitewater Rafting Colorado


 The Colorado River is the longest river in the southwest and features the scenic “Upper C” float trip section near Kremmling and the fun whitewater of Shoshone Rapids near Glenwood Springs. Colorado River rafting trips have enough whitewater rafting choices to satisfy boaters of all ability levels.

All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands by AVA Rafting.


The Colorado River opens up to a gorgeous park-like valley and the Upper Colorado Scenic Float section, that meanders through vibrant meadows strewn with wildflowers and precipitous mini-gorges. Eagles soar in search of prey as trout feast from the depths of the river.
