Located near Vail, Colorado, the western slope begins here with lodge pole pines and aspen forests in the mountains giving way to the sagebrush and junipers of the high desert. The Eagle River whitewater rafting experience offers a variety of paddling for all levels of boating, and the Lower Eagle is the perfect Colorado family rafting experience. There are plenty of rapids to get you wet with small holes and splashy wave trains. Between rapids, you’ll have time to take in the scenery as you meander down the valley into high desert terrain.   A great whitewater trip for families with kids and for first time rafters hoping to experience whitewater.

After a morning or an afternoon of whitewater rafting, it’s just a few minutes to the renowned resort town of Vail.  While most people think of skiing when they think of Vail, the summer months provide a wide range of fantastic outdoor activities.  Adventure Ridge provides a range of great kids’ activities, including mini golf, a climbing wall, and a bungee trampoline.

Horseback riding tours and chairlift rides each provide a unique way to take in the gorgeous views of the Vail Valley.

Take a break from all the activities and stroll through Vail Village, where you’ll find countless shops, boutiques, art galleries, and world-class restaurants.
