Overview
Experience the excitement of a Colorado whitewater rafting adventure on this guided, 3-hour excursion. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure time, then ride along the Arkansas River in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. It’s the perfect introduction to Colorado whitewater rafting, challenging Class II and III rapids and home to herds of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. The driver/guide will be taking photos along the way which will be available for purchase at the end of the trip. All the necessary rafting equipment plus an Alberta hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
What to Expect
Give your family a taste of whitewater adventure, paired with the perfect amount of calm Colorado scenery. Bighorn Sheep Canyon is gentle in just the right places to catch sight of a few Colorado Bighorn Sheep, and offers a few exhilarating class II & III whitewater sections, just enough to keep younger river rafters’ attention.

Before you start this family adventure, a certified guide will walk you through all the rafting training you’ll need to handle the river. Your guide will work with you to make sure your adventure is one you’ll never forget.

Bighorn Sheep Canyon boasts some beautiful Colorado river countryside and local wildlife. Hawks, Bighorn Sheep and a few eagles now and then may join you in your family adventure. Whitewater rafting has never been as beautiful.
