6 things that Make AVA Rafting a Unique Company

How overwhelming are you when try to shop around for any rafting or a ziplining trip. After awhile, it all starts to sound the same. However, over the years Arkansas Valley Adventures has consistently been known as the best rafting company in Colorado. Providing highly trained guides, the best gear, all inclusive pricing, the most flexible cancellation policy, and the top of the line customer service, AVA is truly a unique rafting company!

Not everyone can be a raft guide, especially a very good one. AVA requires any rookie guide to log 300 training hours, three times higher than the state requires. All of our guides must carry a minimum of a valid CPR and First Aid, though many of our guides carry advance certifications as well. Our guides are very knowledgeable of the area and the rivers you are rafting on. If you have a question be sure to ask! The average AVA guide has 8 years experience. That’s a lot of river miles!

All recreational activities come with risk, but it is all preventable and starts at the bottom with our equipment. Top of the line equipment is very important when comes to safety. AVA inspects and updates the equipment annually and is always up to State and Federal standards. The zipline course and all rafting/ziplining gear are thoroughly and carefully inspected prior to the start of each season, as well as during daily check in by the Equipment Manager.
