Arkansas River Rafting - Only 1 hour from Colorado Springs

Rafting the Arkansas River in Colorado - The best rafting destination

Experience for yourself why an Arkansas River Rafting trip is the most popular in the Nation! The drive from Colorado Springs is amazingly scenic and easy-going, which is another reason why rafting the Arkansas River is a top destination when visiting Colorado's front range.

The Arkansas River begins its journey high in Colorado’s Rocky mountains from the winter snowpack that builds along the epic peaks of the Continental Divide. The river’s water descends into the upper Arkansas Headwater Recreation Area, and this is where Colorado’s and the Nation’s most popular rafting happens!

The upper Arkansas River provides both exciting and serene white water rafting. Rafting the Arkansas River in Colorado allows both high adrenaline rafting of the Royal Gorge and the more moderate and family-friendly Bighorn Sheep Canyon.
