Colorado Springs most popular family rafting trip

A short, scenic drive from Colorado Springs

The Bighorn Sheep Canyon is the quintessential family rafting trip in Colorado. Suitable for nearly every age range and level of white water excitement.

With Classic Colorado scenery and a multitude of nimble Bighorn Sheep that call the canyon home, you are sure to find both thrill and edutainment with our expert guides and staff.

Bighorn Sheep Canyon trips run from May-August with both 9 am and 1:30 pm departures. July and August we will add another 10 am departure to suit those that want a more leisurely approach to the day. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip pairs with our Classic Zip Line tour as well and includes lunch at the White Water Bar & Grill. This option known as the Bronze Pass raft & zip-line package has been the most popular full-day itinerary for those with young ones as it keeps the day moving and offers varied excitement.


If the answer is yes? Then you are looking for the Royal Gorge Rafting trip. The Royal Gorge is suitable for ages 13 and up depending on the water levels. In the event, the Royal Gorge closes due to high water we shift all trips up river. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon at high water levels becomes a more challenging run with 3 Rocks in particular becoming a solid class IV-V rapid and the rest of the rapids along this stretch of the river becoming large and formidable with much greater challenges that make the Bighorn Sheep Canyon a comparable run the Royal Gorge.

In the same event, we shift our Bighorn Sheep Canyon trips upriver to a less technical stretch which begins at Lone Pine and ends at Pinnacle Rock. View the video below of the Bighorn Canyon at high water flows. This video is an example of the Bighorn Canyon at high water ~ 5500 CFS ~ 6/8/2019 ~ In this video you will also see our kayak support & photography team in action. Our kayak program is a priceless addition to your adventure of absolute importance, which we can never stress this exclusive aspect enough.
