OVERVIEW

Combine the non-stop action of a white water trip through thrilling Gauntlet with an exhilarating experience through the trees on a fun-filled Colorado zip line tour. Enjoy the best advanced whitewater and the thrill of ziplining into two action-packed days! Pine Creek is the steepest, most technical, and most continuous section of whitewater on the entire Arkansas River. Start your adventure on day 1 getting warmed up in the beautiful Granite Gorge before the river narrows to half its width and drops 200 feet in the course of a single rapid. You barely have time to catch your breath before starting on the notorious Numbers. We’ll break for a hot chicken fajita lunch.

After the rafting trip, head to the AVA Cabins for a delicious dinner and night under the stars. Start off day 2 with a nice breakfast before a wild mountaintop zipline tour! Our zipline course is integrated into the wooded and craggy surroundings of our mountainous 43-acre Gold Camp property. Take in the views of snow-capped peaks and the Arkansas River as you zip from cliff to cliff between the pine and aspen trees.

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.¬†
