We’ll get your adrenaline flowing with a rappel into the Granite Gorge, where you’ll meet your raft for The Gauntlet – rafting Pine Creek & The Numbers. You’ll launch into the most advanced rafting offered on the Arkansas River in Colorado. The Gauntlet is full of Class III-V rapids and is the steepest and most continuous whitewater on the Arkansas River.
AVA runs more guests down these sections of the Arkansas River than any other company in Colorado, so you’re in good hands with highly experienced and safe river guides.
At AVA Rafting & Zipline, we believe you should know what you’re buying and how much you’re going to spend. We believe in added value to make your experience special. We don’t want you to feel “nickel and dimed” when you show up for your trip with us. That’s why we provide wetsuits and splash jackets free of charge on all AVA-run rafting trips. You’ll pay over $20 per person with some other outfitters. On our overnight rafting trips, all camping gear except personal sleeping bag is included. Rock climbing trips and zipline tours also included everything you need. We try our best to prepare you with gear lists and suggested things to bring so that you don’t end up paying for unneeded add-ons.
