Try the newest, most fun activity on the river – Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)! On this half day trip you’ll SUP 5 miles down the Colorado River. You’ll stand up or kneel on a large, surfboard-shaped board and steer with a long paddle as you navigate down the river.
This section of the Upper Colorado River through Little Gore Canyon is the perfect spot to test your abilities with this adventure. The Class II riffles and flat water create a bit of a challenge. You should be comfortable with the fact that you will likely fall in during the trip. There are a couple more adventurous Class II-III sections as well so it’s a great way to up the excitement a bit on our Upper Colorado Scenic Float.
Have smaller kids or less adventurous ones? They can ride in a raft while you SUP along. Also consider our inflatable kayak trips in this section. On these Upper Colorado Scenic Float trips, our rafts, inflatable kayaks and SUPs all go together, so it’s an easy way to mix it up for your group.

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 your Stand Up Paddleboard Trip. You’ll pay over $20 per person with some other outfitters. 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.
