Arkansas River Zipline Tour

 

Why not make the most of your trip and enjoy a package day to excite the senses! Why just enjoy whitewater rafting when you can add on an exciting zipline tour in one of the most beautiful, scenic places imaginable. On this family rafting & zipline tour you will start your day with exciting whitewater followed by a zipline tour that swoops by towering lodge pole pines through the beautiful Colorado Mountains!

The Browns Canyon half day trip is the perfect way to start your day with family-level white water rapids that snake their way through the gorgeous Browns Canyon section of the Arkansas River. Together with the rest of the crew in your boat, you will work to negotiate the rapids of the classic Browns Canyon where you will blast through rapids like Zoom Flume and Pinball.

After playing through the rapids we take a break to enjoy a scrumptious lunch by the river and then take to the trees to see a whole new side to the beautiful Colorado scenery with one of the most exciting and popular summertime mountain activities—ziplining! The pulse pounding Mountaintop Zipline tour offered by AVA will take you high above the ground and sail you through the air at speeds of up to 30mph. Our zip line tours carry you through densely wooded areas and by massive rocky mountain faces that litter our expansive Gold Camp property as you zip from cliff to cliff. You will be amazed at how beautiful the snow-capped mountain peaks and Arkansas River are from your very own aerial view!
