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.

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 Gauntlet rafting trip. You’ll pay over $20 per person with some other outfitters. Your zipline tour also includes 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.
