Can you think of a better way to enjoy the August 21st eclipse than on an overnight rafting trip?
Join us on the Upper Colorado River in Kremmling, CO for a 3-day overnight rafting trip that is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity! You'll have the unique chance to experience the rare Solar Eclipse that will be visible in the United States for the first time in almost 100 years, and the next one won't happen for almost 30 more years!
On this overnight rafting trip, you will depart from our Kremmling Outpost on Sunday, August 20th and make your way down the Colorado River to set up camp for the rare phenomenon. You will enjoy a riverside meal cooked up by your guide before turning in for the night.
Day 2 is when the real excitement begins! After a delicious, hot breakfast, you will prepare for the Solar Eclipse! The Solar Eclipse begins on Monday, August 21st at 10:05am MST in Salem, OR and makes it's way across the US. You will get to see it all happen from the riverside of the notorious Colorado River. The eclipse will begin at about 10:21am, reach its maximum at 11:44am and come into completion at 1:11pm. During this time, the Moon will make its way in front of the Sun, and in the middle of this Colorado day, it will mimic evening. The stars will shine, wildlife will still and the air will cool.
After the eclipse, you will enjoy a riverside lunch before hitting the Colorado River for a little more rafting. You will set up camp and eat dinner, all the while reminiscing on the incredible sight from earlier. Day 2 comes to a close as the moon makes its third appearance of the day.
You will start of your morning on the 3rd day with a hot breakfast before loading up the boats and making your final strokes towards our trip take out.
This trip is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the wild outdoors of Colorado and view the Solar Eclipse. All meals are included and prepared by your guides. This is also a great trip for kids as young as 5 years old!
