We are Defiance Rafting Company

Defiance Rafting Company

Let’s run the big water and experience the rush of the Colorado River or kick back on a scenic family-friendly float and see Colorado from the best seat in the state. Not sure what to book? At Defiance, they’ll keep it easy peasy and point you in the right direction for the perfect trip. Just bring your swimsuit and they’ll take care of the rest. All trips include PFD’s, wetsuits, booties, splash jackets and splash pants, and helmets.

Defiance believes that there’s nothing more awesome than introducing kiddos to river rafting so don’t think twice about bringing the kiddos. The Happy Paddler program makes sure your little adventurers get the VIP treatment so their first time on the water is a positive, fun-filled experience. All Happy Paddlers receive a snack to keep them energized and some sweet swag to celebrate their adventure.

Defiance Rafting Company's Glenwood Canyon Half-Day is the most popular adventure and has a little something for everyone. "If we only had three hours to spend on the water and wanted to show our friends and family what it’s like to experience the thrill of Class III-IV Colorado whitewater rafting and the beauty of Glenwood Canyon, this is the trip we’d take them on!"

Find them nestled in Glenwood Canyon’s No Name Community, operating out of the Glenwood Canyon Resort with the No Name Bar & Grill and Glenwood Canyon Zipline.
