Let us guide you to the best of Colorado’s rivers. From plunging rapids the will test your cool, to calm backwaters and deep canyons that will cool your soul, we’re here to safely show you the way. Rafting is the number one summer activity in Colorado, and for good reason. The narrow canyons become passageways to the ancient layers of sedimentary development. Broad flood plains open to reveal mountain vistas in the distance. Thrilling rapids will make you want to return again and again.
Colorado River Runs offers rafting on the Colorado River and the Eagle River. Both rivers provide the right combination of breathtaking views and exciting whitewater. The Colorado River has scenic mountain vistas and lighter rapids and is great for families. The Eagle River plunges down the Vail Valley in a torrent of fun and excitement and is recommended for thrill seekers. No matter which river you choose, we are certain that you’ll find that our Colorado whitewater adventures are the absolute best.
We are driven by safety and guest care. Our rivers are carefully chosen for fun and accessibility. Everyone wears a Coast Guard approved life jacket and a safety orientation is given before the rafts depart. Our guides are skilled professionals. Our rafts, life jackets and safety gear are the best available. We’re proud that after 50 years our safety record remains perfect. Established in 1973, we are among the original river outfitters in Colorado. We are the only locally owned rafting company on the upper reaches of the Colorado River.
