OVERVIEW

Get the ultimate Colorado whitewater rafting experience in an extension of the classic Browns Canyon‭! ‬The Browns Canyon Express is 6 miles longer than the Browns Canyon Half Day and is a great Buena Vista whitewater rafting trip for groups looking for a‭ ‬shorter option than our full day Browns Canyon rafting trip‭.‬ ‭ ‬Appropriate for the whole family‭, ‬this is the perfect option for first-time rafters and a can’t-miss for experienced paddlers‭.‬ ‭ ‬

Browns Canyon river rafting offers the best of the Arkansas River and takes you through a National Monument‭, ‬including spectacular mountain scenery and thrilling whitewater‭, ‬all in one action-packed afternoon‭.‬ ‭ ‬Leaving from our office just north of Buena Vista‭, ‬a Browns Canyon rafting trip is safe for the younger members of your group‭,‬‭ ‬but still exciting for the older kids and adults‭.‬ ‭ ‬The Browns Canyon Express is your chance to enjoy Colorado rafting for all ages and ability levels‭!‬
