The Happy Hour Rafting Trip is a great way to cap off a day’s worth of adventure in Buena Vista, Colorado. Meet at River Runners Browns Canyon. We will shuttle you to Buena Vista with your guide, then raft six miles of the Arkansas River back down to the Browns Canyon Riverside Grill at River Runners. Notable rapids include the Buena Vista River Park (class III), Beaver Falls (class III) and the Silver Bullet (class III).

The Browns Canyon Riverside Grill

This local food stand is located at River Runners, which is also the put-in for Browns Canyon National Monument. The Baja-inspired menu includes fish tacos, carne asada burritos, veggie burritos, pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, and more. At the bar get local beers from Eddyline Brewery, a local whiskey drink from Deerhammer Distilling Company, margaritas or the River Rummer. Water and other non-alcoholic beverages are available including iced tea, natural sodas, and root beer floats. Shuttles are provided back to your hotel.

Paddle Boat or Oar Boat

You can paddle along with guide instruction (most popular) or request an oar boat if you would prefer to hold on as your guide rows you down the river.
