Blue River

Blue River Rafting

Best Time to Run The Blue River Trip is May & June

The Blue River in Colorado offers the closest rafting to Breckenridge, Keystone and Frisco with incredible scenery of the Gore Range mountains.

The Blue River Express rafting trip includes intermediate whitewater rapids perfect for families or first-timers. Because this whitewater river trip is short, it’s also great for those on a tight schedule or just wanting a taste of whitewater rafting in Colorado.

This river trip takes places north of Silverthorne where rugged ranchland meets the Gore Range – a line of craggy peaks jutting sharply into the blue Colorado sky. Be sure to bring your waterproof camera to capture the majesty.

The availability of the Blue River rafting trip is highly dependent on water flows as the river is released from Lake Dillon. It may be best to give us a call about when Blue River rafting will be available.
