ABOUT THE ROYAL GORGE
As the Arkansas River cuts through the 1200 foot cliffs of Fremont Peak, The Royal Gorge is formed. Here the gradient increases creating longer and more challenging rapids than those found upriver. The Royal Gorge section runs 10 miles through multiple famous and exciting rapids including Sunshine Falls, Sledgehammer, The Narrows, Boat Eater, Wall Slammer and many more! While rafting the Royal Gorge you will pass under the Royal Gorge Bridge towering overhead a thousand feet above the river. In between the excitement of the rapids be sure to keep an eye out for the local wildlife such as the Bighorn Sheep, Peregrine Falcons, Mule Deer and Black Bears that make the Royal Gorge their home.
