OVERVIEW

Blast down the Arkansas River and enjoy the most technical, steepest, and continuous sections of whitewater on the Arkansas River. Rest assured that you will be safe on this leg of the river; AVA runs more guests down these sections than any other company. Pine Creek has one of the steepest drops of any river trip, and the rapids through this section of river are highly technical with heart-thumping action!

At the end of the whitewater, we’ll enjoy our hot fajita lunch riverside. After lunch we’ll take to the trees on our famous zip line tour. Take on 7 ziplines plus other elements like the hanging staircase and swinging bridge.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

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.
