Royal Gorge Rafting & Zip Line Tours

Royal Gorge Rafting & Zip Line Tours offers several adventures to suit nearly all ages and abilities. Suppose you are looking for a moderate tour with less demanding whitewater or zipline action. In that case, we offer whitewater rafting along the Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Classic Zipline Tour, both of which are suitable for first-timers or timid adventurers. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon provides plenty of excitement but isn't as commanding as the higher class white water of the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge is a more challenging stretch of whitewater that excites most paddlers experienced or first-timers alike.

Choosing the Best Rafting & Zipline Trip

When determining the best trips, you should consider the age ranges in your group and the overall physical fitness levels of your group. Families with young children or older participants will want to raft the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. It is not uncommon for a group to split up based on abilities and ages. You will all regroup and rekindle tales of your adventures at our Whitewater Bar & Grill.
