2020 Update: This trip is currently unavailable.
The ultimate, adrenaline-filled trip! Rappelling, rafting, ziplining and a cabin! Start with a 75-foot rappel down to the river, where you meet your raft and the rest of your trip. Blast down the Arkansas River and enjoy the most technical, steepest, and most continuous sections of whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River, including the Pine Creek rapid! Rest assured that you will be safe on this leg of the river because AVA runs more guests down these sections than any other company. At the end of the whitewater enjoy our hot fajita lunch riverside.
After returning to our Granite Outpost, enjoy an evening at an AVA Cabin and dinner.
Start the next day with breakfast before taking your next adventure: the Mountaintop Zipline. Our zipline is integrated into the surroundings of our mountainous 44-acre Gold Camp property. Take in the views as you zip from cliff to cliff between the pine and aspen trees at speeds of up to 30 mph. You’ll tackle 7 ziplines plus other elements like swinging bridges and hanging staircases. Minimum age 7, minimum weight 50 lbs and maximum weight 250 lbs.
