    What to Expect
    Browns Canyon is the most popular whitewater rafting section in Colorado, and for good reason! Recently designated a National Monument, this beloved section of the Arkansas River offers 10-18 miles of Class III-IV whitewater that is perfect for the whole family. Whether you’re a first-time rafter or an experienced paddler, Browns Canyon is the place for you!
    Your Browns Canyon half-day or full-day trip starts just 2 miles south of Buena Vista, CO where you will get ready for your adventure. Knowledgeable staff will help you from start to finish to ensure this whitewater rafting trip is the highlight of your vacation.
    Splash through exciting whitewater while your professional river guide shows you the time of your life in this unique part of Colorado. Beautiful views of the 14,000 foot peaks, unique granite rock formations and wildlife will inspire you to return again and again, as many do every year. Start your annual whitewater rafting tradition this summer!
    Once you reach the take-out enjoy snacks and drinks on the 20-minute bus ride home. Once changed back into dry clothes, don't forget to view your photos. A riverside lunch is included on all full-day adventures.

    Having never rafted before, we felt totally safe yet thrilled to explore the canyon. Jessie was informational and perhaps because we were a small crew of just five, the most adventurous of the guides, spinning us around, and even letting me ride the front of...More

    This was the first time for my family, I have 2 teenage girls and we had a blast doing the 1/2 Day Browns Canyon afternoon. We had a lot of fun, the water was nice and cool. You will end up spending about 1:45 on the water.
