Overview
Embark on one of Colorado’s most epic whitewater rafting adventures with a trip down the Arkansas River as it winds through the cavernous Royal Gorge. Test your paddling skills as you navigate pulse-pounding rapids, and take a break during calm stretches to gawk up at the steep canyon walls and the Royal Gorge Bridge stretching overhead. It’s an unforgettable — and wet!— way to experience the gorge’s larger-than-life landscape. 
What to Expect
Scenic, historic, crazy fun: that’s how we show you one on America’s greatest treasures. Join us on the Arkansas River as it winds through beautiful scenery and under the famous Royal Gorge Bridge.

Royal Gorge rafting has never been more exciting! The Royal Gorge is an epic sight from any angle but from below, it is truly breathtaking. Don’t gawk for too long, though, because when our expert guides yell, “paddle!” they mean it! The rapids on this section of the Arkansas River are big and challenging, but spaced just enough for you to enjoy the Royal Gorge Bridge above and the towering canyon walls around you. All Royal Gorge rafting trips take you through legendary rapids, making Royal Gorge rafting as exciting as it gets!

Close your eyes and picture yourself rafting on the Arkansas River through the breathtaking Rocky Mountains. You’re at the bottom of the amazing Royal Gorge staring up at majestic granite walls that rise on both sides over 1,000 feet in the air. Now imagine you’re navigating your way through the Arkansas River’s wild river rapids while rafting the Royal Gorge with waves so big and drops so fast that everyone is soaked from head to toe, and all your cheeks hurt from smiling so much. Does this sound like the adventure you’ve been looking for? If so then the Royal Gorge rafting adventure is for you.

Super Entertaining!

Curtis is the MAN! He guided us through the rapids with ease and was super entertaining. The half day was perfect. We got WET and rowed hard so we, I, was exhausted afterwards. A bigger person, or someone under 30 can easily handle the full-day,...More
