Arkansas Valley Adventures is a multi-sport, regional company located in central Colorado. We specialize in creating unforgettable adventures in Colorado! We offer an array of mountain adventures, from whitewater rafting—with your choice of five different rivers across Colorado—to zipline tours, rock climbing, fly fishing, horseback riding, hiking, cabins and camping. The 2011 season will be our 14th year in business providing our guests with amazing adventures. Throughout the existence of AVA, it has been our goal to advance the industry of whitewater rafting and of adventure outfitters. Whether it is guest service, gear, our guides, our outposts or our website, we strive to be the best. Plain and simple, we set the bar for Colorado adventure companies.
We took our first trip with AVA on vacation in 2004 prior to moving to Colorado in 2006, now we go every summer! We go with our son and friends who come to town and have always had great trips and guides. This year we are thinking about trying a zipline rafting trip. I highly recommend AVA, you’ll have a blast!— , Colorado
The Colorado mountains offer endless ways to bring adventure to your life! Adventures in Colorado and adventures in Summit County include whitewater rafting, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, hot springs, horseback riding, ATVing, hot air ballooning, ski lift rides, and much more! Boredom is not a problem in the Colorado mountains; instead, it’s deciding which of the incredible adventures in Colorado to take part in!
We have an outpost for many of our adventures in Granite, Colorado (between Buena Vista and Leadville). We also have outpost sin Idaho Springs and Kremmling as well as pick-ups in Keystone and Breckenridge for select rafting trips. We can also design a custom Colorado mountain adventure for any group. You pick the length of time and the details, such as meals and door-to-door transportation. We can provide you with a simple BBQ with hot dogs and hamburgers or a gourmet meal with fine wine. Activites like whitewater rafting and rock climbing are also excellent activities for teambuilding. We cater to the specific needs of your group to make an adventure in Colorado happen for you!
AVA acknowledges safety as our number one priority on your Colorado adventures. We provide only the best quality gear. We also require helmets on any rafting adventure Class III or higher, which is above and beyond the state standards. Our guides are extremely well trained, and many have years of experience leading adventures in Colorado.
Thanks for your interest in AVA. We look forward to helping you create the adventure of a lifetime in Colorado!
