Numbers Rafting Trips in Buena Vista, Colorado

Raft the Arkansas River

Are you looking for an exciting whitewater rafting trip in Colorado? Run mile-long rapids on a Numbers rafting tour in Buena Vista. This advanced whitewater section of the Arkansas River has so many rapids they were numbered instead of named. Choose from full-day, half-day, and overnight adventures. The Numbers has a limited season, but tours depart daily mid-May through mid-August.

Paddle Hard & Listen To Your Guide

This is not a float trip. You will need to paddle hard and listen to guide instruction as you navigate steep chutes, big waves, and long rapids. Everyone should be fit and able to swim. Oar boats are not an option. Check out one of our Browns Canyon whitewater rafting tours if you are looking for something less intense.
