White Water Rafting in Colorado
Whitewater Rafting in Colorado on the Arkansas River, North America’s most popular river, is nothing short of an amazing rafting experience. The Ark, as the Colorado rafting locals call it, is the ultimate destination for whitewater rafting in Colorado and one of the best in the world! Starting off in a crisp Colorado high alpine setting, Colorado whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River runs parallel to the Continental Divide winding its way through a mountainous landscape that contains the highest concentration of 14,000-foot peaks in the lower 48. With over 100 miles of navigable Colorado whitewater, Arkansas River rafting eventually ends up flowing through the awe inspiring Royal Gorge and under the world’s tallest suspension bridge. The ultimate Royal Gorge rafting vacation runs right through the Arkansas River Valley!
