Ready for a quick venture out on the whitewater? Join AVA on our Blue River Express trip and make the most of your afternoon in the Colorado Rockies. When you venture with AVA, we’ll get you all set up with a splash jacket and wetsuit, unlike many other outfitters that will charge nearly $20 a person for this amenity.
Ended up taking the last rafting trip of the season down the Blue River! Second time with Ava and incredible again. We were fortunate enough to have Mark as our guide, who was also our guide two years ago. He was great ... again. Such a wonderful experience for a family. The scenery was beautiful and the rapids just enough to make us all smile and want more. Thank you! Can’t wait to do it again.
Great time - safe but still exciting. Thanks Eric. You did a great job. We had a blast. Eric was very personable, explained what was to be expected, helped us prepare and kept us safe. The scenery was beautiful....birds, mountains. The level 3 rapids were exciting without being overly scary. The nearby town of Silverthorne was cute and quaint, a great spot for lunch afterwards!
