Splashy & Moderate

24 Hours on the Upper Colorado

This trip offers something for everyone! Enjoy wildlife, serenity, and natural beauty that only the Colorado River can offer. You’ll have plenty of time to take in historic cabins, scenic waterfalls, and steep canyon walls towering over 100′ above your head. Bald eagles, black bears, and the endangered Colorado river otter are often seen on this fun section of the river.

The Highlights Of Your Trip

This family-friendly river adventure is almost like an all-inclusive vacation for you and your group. AVA Rafting & Zipline provides everything you’ll need for this outing except for a sleeping bag. That means after a long day on the river, you can sit back and relax as your guides set up camp and cook you dinner. What could be better than that?
