What should you gift?
With the wide variety of trips AVA Rafting & Zipline offers as well as multiple locations across the state of Colorado, there is a plethora of adventures to choose from. Younger kids? No problem, there are multiple Class II and III rafting trips that welcome young adventurers. Grandparents? No big deal, consider horseback riding, a scenic train ride, or maybe a fly fishing excursion. Photos and video are also available so that those memories can be relived over and over.
Best Gifts for the Thrill Seekers
Daredevils will be sure to enjoy our Via Ferrata course where the participant will traverse the cliffside, rappel, rock climb, and zipline all in a single, unique excursion. Push them to their limits as they venture across hanging bridges, navigate iron rungs embedded in the rock, and take a leap of faith with our 50 foot free fall.
On the other hand, you can have them paddling down the river on some intense Class IV or V rapids. We suggest the Numbers on the Arkansas River in Buena Vista. It’ll give any guest a roller coaster ride but is still good for those in-shape active participants that haven’t navigated a fair amount of whitewater yet.
Best Gifts for Families
Perfect family trips include plenty of smiles and Class II and III rapids. AVA has a multitude of river adventures for the groups with kids, but we think the best one may just be our scenic float along the Upper Colorado River. The Class II rapids welcome those as young as 2 years old with a minimum weight of 30 pounds, and the grandparents can tag along as well. You’ll get to gaze at the incredible views surrounding your raft, and for those who want a bit of adventure – dabble in some cliff jumps!
Try out an aerial adventure on one of our zipline tours if you aren’t too keen on exploring the river. AVA has two courses in Idaho Springs and Buena Vista, both with a handful of ziplines and plenty of other exciting and breathtaking features.
Last but not least, AVA’s newest adventure program is live and makes the perfect family outing. Try out one of our guided hiking tours in the breathtaking Rocky Mountain National Park. The treks range from easy to advanced, and you can even camp out overnight in this beautiful area of Colorado.
