Overview

Elk Mountain Expeditions (EME) opened its doors in 2012 with the intent to bring a more personalized experience to the rafting industry. After 10 years working with many large rafting companies around the country we decided to start a company that is free of all the problems that accompany big business rafting. Smaller trips with highly trained guides, no hidden fees, and attention to detail set us apart from other companies in the Roaring Fork Valley. At EME, we are dedicated to providing excellent customer experiences on and off the water. Come out and see the difference a passionate and dedicated team of employees can make on your next river adventure. We are excited to share Aspen's beautiful rivers with you and your family.

My wife and i went out with Connor and had a great time. He was great. He not only ensured we caught a lot of fish, but he also explained how and what we were doing as we went along.

Great time with Evan and MK paddling through a gorgeous Aspen meadow. Couldn’t have asked for a better start to a few days of sitting inside a conference! I will be back for more time with Elk Mtn. Huge thumbs up!

Perfect afternoon excursion for our family! No better way to go rafting than with Elk Mtn. Their experience and overall preparedness make it really fun! Ask for Evan.

Tyler was great with my family. Lots of fun, but safety first. Our kids are 7,9, and 11. My wife and kids all thought this was the best part of our Colorado trip. We will make sure to use Elk Mtn next time we come...More

The guides were friendly, fun and helpful. We could have done me with a bit more action, but that would have meant more driving time. I appreciate the pickup at our hotel and the free, digital photos. Next time, we will do a longer trip!

We had a blast. They put us in 2 rafts, and both guides were awesome. Towards the end of the trip, we saw some of the forest fire near Basalt then it started pouring down rain. It was cold but fun!

i'm honestly not really sure. This was my first rafting trip. From what I understand, the best rafting is in the June & July time frame from the snowmelt. So by the fall, it's lost much of that. But I'm sure there is... More
