Overnight Rafting in Colorado

Day One – Overnight Rafting in Colorado

Includes dinner.

Check in at the River Runners Browns Canyon outpost at 12:30 pm. After everyone has read and signed the waiver, you will meet your guides and pack personal camping gear into dry bags. Your gear will be floated to camp by the gear boater.

Walk down to River Runners’ private launch site for a safety orientation and paddle talk. Trips depart at 2:00 pm.

Paddle into Browns Canyon until you reach camp, where you will set up your tent and enjoy the rest of the evening at a remote campsite under the stars. Fish the Arkansas River (you will need your own pole and a license), hike up a side canyon for a view of the surrounding 14,000-foot peaks, or relax by the campfire. Your guides will cook dinner and do dishes, while you relax and enjoy an evening with family and friends.

Day Two – Overnight Rafting in Colorado 

Includes breakfast and lunch.

Wake up to coffee, juice and a hot breakfast. Relax or explore, while your guides clean up and pack gear onto rafts. Run a few rapids, stop for lunch, then run some more rapids. Take out of the river at Stone Bridge Recreation Site (13 miles from the put-in) at about 1:00 pm. A 25 minute shuttle back to River Runners concludes the tour.
