“You cannot step into the same river twice” The 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. Along the way, there are plenty of wide open spaces, where time seems to stand still. Family members reconnect, strangers become friends, and 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.

Safety Comes First and the Fun Follows...Always

At Paddle Colorado, our highly trained river guides focus on safety and ensure that your trip is filled will fun for everyone.
