Rafting Browns Canyon Colorado: the ultimate Colorado river rafting experience! The full day Browns Canyon Sizzler is a great trip for the whole family – a great option for first-time rafters and a can’t-miss for experienced paddlers. This trip offers a classic white water rafting trip in one action-packed day. A hot chicken fajita lunch is provided riverside halfway through the trip and the additional rapids make the Browns Canyon Sizzler the best option for a one-day Colorado adventure.

Browns Canyon on the Arkansas River offers thrilling whitewater appropriate for a wide range of folks. Take in the impressive mountain and canyon scenery as you raft through a National Monument. Appropriate for the younger members of your group, but still exciting for the older kids and adults, rafting Browns Canyon is your chance to enjoy Colorado whitewater rafting for all ages and ability levels!

You’ll start out the day with a safety talk and a quick paddling lesson from your guide. You’ll get valley-wide, panoramic views of over a dozen 14,000-ft peaks. You’ll have just enough time to get used to working as a team before you hit the first blast of rapids. Once you’re inside Browns Canyon, the stunning granite walls rise up to either side while the thrilling rapids continue!

Halfway through the canyon, we’ll break for our signature sizzling fajita lunch by the edge of the river. Now is a great chance to kick back and take in the jaw-dropping views of the Collegiate Range, a chain of 14,000 foot mountains looming to the west. Browns Canyon shows you Colorado beauty at its best as it runs through a National Monument, so don’t forget to keep an eye out for local bird life and other wildlife! Or, just kick back and enjoy the sound of the river rushing by as you prepare for even more excitement on the second half of your trip.

At the end of the day, we’ll shuttle you back to our outpost where you can change into dry clothes. Stop by our retail shop and check out photos from the trip while you and your friends recount the thrills of your day.
