Colorado’s best Beginner river trips


on the Arkansas River > Meeting Location: Buena Vista, Colorado

We call the Milk Run our introduction to rafting. Just one hour on the water, there are a few ripples to keep it interesting, but it’s the beautiful mountain views and calm nature of this beginner float that make it worthwhile. Minimum age is 2, and this rafting trip is on the Arkansas River and meets at our Buena Vista location.


on the Colorado River > Meeting Location: Frisco, Colorado

This calm, gentle float on the Colorado River is just what the doctor ordered for a fun family adventure! With a minimum age of 4, this all day rafting trip includes our Ultimate Fajita Feast hot lunch. With some easy class I and II rapids, this relaxing float is still exciting enough for the little ones!
