If adventure is what you want, and you don't mind being splashed with ice cold water, and possibly having the raft turnover, or you falling out, this is what you want to do. It is so much fun to be with friends, feeling the soul of the river, the spray, and having a sense of accomplishment. This year, 2017, there... More

My husband and I signed up to do one of the "numbers" tours, but not enough people wanted to go there so a couple of days before we were asked to switch to the "slaughterhouse" section on the Roaring Fork River. What an amazing day! The guides were all amazing-- answered questions and did a safety lesson before we took... More

Ben, Thank you for your interest in Blazing Adventures. Our apologies for not being able to get you out on one of our trips. During shoulder seasons, trip minimums are sometimes not met. Our apologies if this was not clearly explained to you. The price for two people would not cover the guide's pay for the trip. I am glad... More

Pros: Nice Class 3 rapids with experienced guides in a very scenic area on the Colorado River. Shuttle van is clean and modern. Actual time in raft is good but beware of longer, less exciting trips. Cons: Company arrives late to pick us up, too many stops along the way with waiting for additional guest pick up, too much time... More

Mark, I am glad to read that you enjoyed the rafting. At Blazing, we are always hunting for the best whitewater. At the time of your trip, the section of river you rafted had the best whitewater in the state. Our river closer to home had lost its high flows. We do offer to pickup at guests at a hotel.... More

What an amazing day on the Colorado with our guide Mike!!! This adventure was my first white water adventure in over 14 years. Our guides were fabulous and very informative! The knowledge they have of the river and safety was was everything I needed to take the edge off of white water for me! I now have the burning desire... More

We had a group of 13 (big family vacation) and took two jeeps up Aspen mountain a couple of weeks ago. The views were INCREDIBLE, and our guides were fantastic! They even bring snacks/waters for you. They were so informative during the drive and all of us had a blast. They even took tons of photos of us at multiple... More

We did the bike ride down from Maroon Bells, and, I know everyone talks about it, but the view is truly not to be missed. My 3 year old niece came and was so excited to ride in the bike trailer down the mountain. If you're looking for a family friendly bike ride in an unforgettable scenic route of Colorado,... More

I've been rafting and jeeping with Blazing Adventures multiple times this summer and they do an absolute top notch job! They have something for everyone and a well tuned operation with some of the best guides I have ever had. We loved both the Upper Roaring Fork and the Arkansas river trips. Also be sure to check out their Maroon... More

We joined Blazing Adventures for their Sunset Dinner/Jeep Tour. Props to Kirsten (our driver/Snowmass sightseeing guide), Peter, and Rich (guitar/vocalist) for making a slightly soggy trip a good time. It was cool to see the topography of the mountain/trails without the snow. Singing/listening in the cabin was relaxing, and the sunset view (rain cleared just after dinner) was beautiful. No...
