Embarking on a family rafting adventure promises unforgettable moments and cherished memories. It’s an opportunity to bond with loved ones amidst Colorado’s breathtaking scenery and exhilarating rapids. To ensure your family’s rafting experience is nothing short of extraordinary, here are five tips to make the most of your adventure, from the best in the business.

1. Choose the right trip

Selecting the appropriate rafting trip is crucial for a successful family outing. Our friendly adventure coordinators are here to answer any and all questions and help you choose the perfect trip for your group. Opt for trips that cater to varying skill levels, ensuring everyone, from beginners to seasoned adventurers, feels comfortable and safe. 
Look for family-friendly routes with moderate rapids and scenic landscapes, such as the gentle stretches of the Arkansas River’s Milk Run or Colorado River’s Pumphouse Canyon. These trips offer the perfect balance of excitement and relaxation suitable for all ages. 

2. Embrace Adventure Together

Rafting isn’t just about conquering rapids; it’s about sharing thrills and laughter with your family. Encourage everyone to actively participate in paddling and navigating the river under the guidance of your experienced guides.
Embrace the spirit of adventure as you navigate twists and turns, celebrate victories, and conquer challenges as a team. These shared experiences strengthen family bonds and create lasting memories. Be sure to stop by the office on your way home to see the photos that we’re taken of you on the river!

3. Escape to Nature

One of the greatest rewards of rafting is the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature’s beauty. Take advantage of serene moments between rapids to appreciate the surrounding wilderness. Encourage your family to observe wildlife along the riverbanks, marvel at towering canyon walls, and soak in the tranquility of flowing waters. These serene interludes foster a deep appreciation for the natural world and offer valuable opportunities for unplugging and relaxing. Your guide will point out local flora and fauna along your trip.

4. Capture Lifelong Memories

There are professional photographers along the river taking photos of your family so you can preserve this unforgettable experience forever! Feel free to bring along a waterproof camera as long as you can secure it to your person. We suggest leaving your phones in your car, otherwise the river will likely eat them. 

5. Extend the Experience

Extend the excitement of your family rafting adventure by exploring additional activities and attractions in the surrounding area. Many rafting destinations offer a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities, including hiking, biking, fishing, hot springs, and scenic drives. Plan a post-rafting picnic, embark on a nature hike, soak in stunning hot springs, or visit nearby attractions to further enrich your family getaway. By extending your adventure, you create a well-rounded experience that leaves a lasting impression on everyone in the family.

We hope to see you on the river this summer! Give us a call if you have any questions or concerns and safe travels!
