  • Location

    Location, location, location.

    The Royal Gorge region is located in an elevated Alpine Desert climate 120 miles down river from the snow covered peaks of the headwaters of the Arkansas River. This makes the Royal Gorge region beneficial in many ways.
  • Temperature

    Temperature

    During high water run off the water is always warmer for rafting in comparison to the upper reaches of the river through Browns Canyon National Monument or the Numbers section of the Arkansas River where it can be extremely cold during spring run off.
