Rafting, Rapids, & Locations

No Colorado vacation is complete without whitewater rafting. And Clear Creek rafting is one of the most popular kinds of rafting in Colorado.

The Clear Creek rafting season usually only lasts a month or two so make sure not to miss out. Choose and you can choose between Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced rafting. 

*Booking to raft on Clear Creek between August 1st -15th is tentative depending on water level, but we can switch guests to rafting on the Upper Colorado River or apply credit towards another activity if Clear Creek is running too low.

Beginner whitewater rafting is great for groups who want to get their feet wet and experience rafting for the first time. There is a great balance between moments of paddling and action as well as scenic floats along the creek.
