The Colorado River Experience

The Paddle Colorado journey takes place on the beautiful and historic Upper Colorado River. This is the first commercially rafted section along the Mighty Colorado’s epic trip, from the high country of the Rockies, on through the southwestern United States. Although this particular stretch of river is very popular and is revered among visitors to Colorado and private-boaters alike; it is a broad and remote enough stretch that one gets the feeling of truly being out in the wilderness, away from it all.

Your personable guide will be there to entertain and inform you while guiding your raft downriver, through beautiful canyons, experiencing the thrills of class II and III rapids such as Eye of the Needle, Yarmony (Hoyt), and Graveyard rapids. Whether you are wielding a paddle or just ‘going with the flow’, a fun and enjoyable ride is had by all.

Along the way there are plenty of wide open spaces, where time seems to stand still. Family members reconnect, strangers become friends, the bustle of our fast-paced world is set aside for a very valuable moment. It is in these moments that we realize why it is that we desire to ‘get away’; why it is that we need vacations.

We invite you to join us for either a half-day or a full-day trip (complete with a relaxing riverside lunch) down the Mighty Upper Colorado River. Both adventures will provide you and yours with an experience that will resound long after your trip down.
