C. Second Activity

After lunch, meet back with your guide and get ready for the next exciting portion of your Colorado outdoor adventure. As the outpost fades from view below, you’ll take a short ride up to our zipline course.

Our course offers a high-altitude perspective of the Rocky Mountains, providing a distinct vantage point of the Arkansas River Valley.

What to Know About Ziplining & Rock Climbing Adventures

Woman ziplining in the Colorado mountains.

Best of Colorado

Your rock-climbing adventure kicks off at our Buena Vista Outpost, where you will top rope climb the Granite Gorge Cliffs. As you ascend to lofty heights above the Arkansas River Valley, you will be rewarded with stunning vistas of the towering 14,000-foot Collegiate Peaks and the meandering Arkansas River below. The scenery on your zipline adventure will also not disappoint, as you again find yourself up high, amidst the Rocky Mountain treetops. Our zipline course is seamlessly integrated into the mountainside rather than built on platforms. This provides a unique way to truly immerse yourself in Colorado’s cliffsides and rock faces.

Options for Everyone

During the rock-climbing segment of your adventure, your group, with the help from your guide, will select from two distinct climbing routes tailored to accommodate beginner or intermediate climbers. Not only is this experience an exhilarating outdoor activity with breathtaking Colorado panoramas, but an opportunity for novice climbers to develop skills in belaying, rappelling, and knot tying. Our zipline course is also ideal for all levels, with kids as young as 7 encouraged to participate. Your entire group will have fun zipping and laughing between the treetops on this six-line adventure course.

I can go on and on about how GREAT this experience was.. I was supposed to go on a different rafting and zip lining experience somewhere else in Colorado but was unable to make it.. I was near by for vacation and I knew I had to go back to do it. I searched for “Denver Rafting” and found AVA with very good reviews and had to look into it! I originally wanted to do the “Gauntlet” as my first rafting experience but instead changed my mind and got the “mountain zip lining and 1/2 day numbers” experience. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I had smiles, content in my heart and pictures to last a LIFETIME! Jess and Robert were such amazing guides for the zip lining trip and helped everyone especially me since it was my first time to get us in the mindset that no matter what we were safe! Even had the opportunity to race Robert on the fastest line and well experience always wins…throughout the whole experience they were very informative and just very fun to be around!! By far the Rafting was the best part.. Chris was just so helped for everyone on the raft the whole time, no matter if we had people fall out of the raft or even had to rescue a “swimmer” he was ALWAYS Calm, Cool and Collected! After having this experience, I will definitely tell everyone I know that they NEED to have this as well. With all the help throughout the whole process there will be no way that don’t have a GREAT time.

We had an absolute blast as always! Shawn and the other AVA guides were amazing. We rode with Shawn and he made the whole trip memorable for our family! He was very knowledgeable and had a ton of facts about the river and all the wildlife in the area. The Browns Canyon is a perfect family trip with enough adventure for all ages. We'll definitely be back!
Thanks for everything Shawn and AVA!!!

My family had a great trip with AVA! We did mountainside zip lining course near Granite, CO. Our guides Tripp and Jess were amazing! Safety first, but fun was a close second. The lines are through the trees with beautiful views of the Arkansas River and Collegiate Peaks. 6 lines took us over 2 hours to complete. There is a bit of a climb to the first line, but after that it’s easy going!
