Rafting on the Colorado River


Rafting on the Colorado River can accommodate kids as young as 2 years old and is great for all of your special events. Just because the youngens can join this trip doesn't mean the excitement isn't there! Whether you are a seasoned rafter or first-timer, you will enjoy a trip down the Colorado River.

Heading to the Kremmling area? The fun doesn't stop at rafting! Our Kremmling Outpost is an Orvis Certified Dealer & Trip Operator, so you can join us for world-class fly fishing on the Colorado River as well.

Our Colorado River Outpost is located in the town of Kremmling, just 37 miles north of Silverthorne and 53 miles south of Steamboat Springs. Our Colorado River trips are just about an hour away from Breckenridge and Summit County, 2 hours from Denver and 1 hour from Rocky Mountain National Park.



The Colorado River spans 1,450 miles through the southwest United States and into Mexico. Eleven U.S. National Parks and 5 U.S. states can claim some portion of the Colorado River, and it serves as a vital water source for around 40 million people. Only 4 rivers in the United States are longer than the Colorado River, and is in the top 50 longest rivers in the world.

The Colorado River is a popular destination for every water sport on the spectrum. You can wind through the Grand Canyon on 21-day rafting trips,  SUP at the base of the Gore Range, fly fish in Moab and more.
