A Summer Well Spent

Make up for Lost Time, Spend this Summer Outside



The first few months of 2021 have brought some light to our lives, and AVA would like to help make your summer even brighter.

Last summer we had to come together and stay indoors to protect one another. This summer, come join us for some sensational socially distanced adventures!

We have implemented new health and safety procedures to ensure the safety of you and our employees.

We made some changes to make sure you, your family and friends all remain safe at all AVA Rafting & Zipline trips. We have implemented smaller group sizes, contactless check-in process, digital waivers, thorough gear sanitization, staff screening and private trips to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy during this pandemic. If you want to learn more about our procedures, you can click here!

Nature isn’t cancelled. Summer isn’t cancelled. Adventure isn’t cancelled.

Make up for last summer by making this one an adventure filled summer to remember. We are here to remind you of what it is like to live life to fullest while being the safest. With 114 trips offered, your summer of fun will be endless!

Although this summer will be unique while we continue to take extra precautions to protect our health, AVA will be ready. Ready to help you unplug and connect to the world around you. Ready to raft another 300,000 miles of river with the best adventure-seekers around. Ready to zip across mountains and scale the cliffs of Idaho Springs. Ready to guide you to a summer well spent.

At AVA, our best summer ever looks a lot like being a part of the highlight of yours.

About AVA Rafting & Zipline

So what makes us different than the other adventure companies in Colorado? As a leader of our industry, our goal is to continually set the bar higher. From guides and training to guest service, outposts and gear, AVA will only settle for the best. We put our guides through 3 times the state requirement for whitewater rafting guides. Our zipline and via ferrata guides go through intense training by the best and most experienced aerial course manager in the industry. From your first interaction with us, whether online, over the phone or in-person, to reminiscing your trip years later, our primary goal is to provide you with exhilarating memories and safe experiences during your adventures with AVA Rafting & Zipline.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain
