Colorado Whitewater Rafting in Idaho Springs, Colorado
AVA’s Idaho Springs Outpost Serving Clear Creek
Arkansas Valley Adventures’ Clear Creek/Idaho Springs Outpost is located just 30 minutes west of Denver in one of Colorado’s old mining valleys. We’ve chosen to set up in this area for easy access to some of the best whitewater in Colorado.
FUN FACT: You get free wetsuits and splash jackets on all AVA-run trips. Ask around: you’ll pay up to $25 for this gear at other companies.
Our 4,000-square-foot Idaho Springs Outpost offers the best amenities, including spacious and clean changing rooms and restrooms, a fun retail shop and outside sitting areas for you to relax. The Clear Creek/Idaho Springs Outpost is in an ideal location for a quick day trip. The outpost is only 30 miles west of downtown Denver and Idaho Springs offers lodging for anyone who wants to rest after a long day on the river.
If you’re looking for whitewater action in Brown’s Canyon, The Numbers or another section of the Arkansas River – our Buena Vista Outpost is the place to start. We have rafting trips leaving from the Breckenridge area at our Breckenridge Outpost or trips on the upper Colorado River that leave from our Kremmling Outpost. We can even completely customize a trip on the Arkansas River to meet your group’s exact needs!
In addition to Colorado whitewater rafting trips, Arkansas Valley Adventures offers guided zip line tours and rock climbing on our 50-acre property, as well as fly fishing and horseback riding trips in the Arkansas Valley. Whatever your Colorado Vacation Adventure dream looks like, we’ve got the resources and experience to bring your dreams to reality.
