Excitement the whole way

You will start your day at our Kremmling Outpost, where you’ll receive your gear and go through a thorough safety orientation. Then it’s time to head to the river! In this unique trip, you will kayak gently flowing sections of the Colorado River, and some rougher whitewater that is forgiving even to beginners 10 years or older. You will experience several small rapids as you wind through the Gore Range and mountain ranchland. If you want to take a rest, you’ll have plenty of time for a swim and to observe the natural hot spring nestled along the river.
