5 Reasons to Book an Overnight Rafting Adventure
AVA Rafting and Zipline offers some of the best and most exciting adventures available in the great state of Colorado. The list of activities are rather extensive throughout the company, but it’s the best of the best when it comes to rafting. Overnight rafting trips provides an experience like no other, with a night spent camping riverside sandwiched between days out on the river. Overnight rafting trips range from 24 hours to 3 days and up. If you are interested in even more adventure, our overnight deluxe trips add ziplining to your overnight rafting experience. Could you picture a better adventure? Here are five fantastic reasons to make an overnight trip the trip you want to book!
#1: OVERNIGHT TRIPS TURN AN EXCITING TRIP INTO A COMPLETE EXPERIENCE
You get to enjoy yourself in the extreme sport environment for a solid 24 hours or more and get a chance to truly embrace it. Just one overnight experience can be a life changer. It can take a first time rafter and turn them into a lifetime rafter. There is truly no better way to experience Colorado!
#2: THE FOOD ON AN OVERNIGHT TRIP WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
All overnight trips include one thing that all people love, food! For our 24 hour trips, a delicious dinner is cooked up by your guides when you make your riverside camp for the evening. And we would never forget dessert! Enjoy some delicious spice cake made fresh over the coals in a cast iron Dutch oven. Wake up the next morning to a tasty, hot breakfast! You may just welcome the Colorado morning over some blueberry pancakes, bacon and fruit. If your trip is over 24 hours, you will also get to enjoy a riverside lunch. On the Arkansas River, take advantage of our sizzling Chicken Fajitas. Peanut Butter and Jelly is also available for the kiddos if they prefer. If you will be rafting on the Colorado River, tasty, fresh sandwiches are sure to curb your hunger when you lunch riverside.
#3: CAMPING NEXT TO THE RIVER IS A MUST
There is nothing that compares to snoozing to the sounds of nature. Flowing water, wind in the trees and the occasional sound of wildlife do nothing but help lull you into the best, most relaxing sleep of your life. Our overnight trips do include a tent all packed up for you to use, however, you may just want to unroll your paco pad (sleeping mat) under the stars to really immerse yourself in nature.
#4: OVERNIGHT RAFTING IS A GREAT BONDING EXPERIENCE.
Our overnight trips give you a chance to get to know our guides and other rafters on your trip. Our raft guides not only guide you down the river, but they are knowledgeable about the area, both geographically and its wildlife. They are also your chefs for breakfast, lunch and dinner! You get to know them on a personal basis and get an insight into the rafting world.
#5: IT’S NOT THE SAME OL’ SUMMER.
The final reason you should book an overnight rafting adventure is to expand your summer. Why do the same old thing when you can push your boundaries and unplug for a day or so?
No matter which overnight trip you pick you are in store for a great treat. If you would like a little guidance with booking your overnight trip, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 800-370-0581. Happy rafting!
