OVERVIEW

The ultimate, adrenaline-filled trip! Rappelling, rafting, ziplining and camping! Start with a 75-foot rappel down to the river, where you meet your raft and the rest of your trip. After your rappel, we’ll get you warmed up in the beautiful Granite Gorge as we practice our paddling skills. Blast down the Arkansas River and enjoy the most technical, steepest, and most continuous sections of whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River. 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. We will pull off for a hot, riverside chicken fajita lunch before heading back to the outpost.

Spend the evening at the AVA campground with dinner. Kick off day 2 with breakfast and a trip through the mountains on our Mountaintop Zipline. You will sail you through our tree-dense Gold Camp property as we jump from cliff to cliff. Take on 7 ziplines plus other elements like the hanging staircase and swinging bridge.
