White Water River Rafting

“We said there warn’t no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don’t. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.”
--Mark Twain

One of the biggest tourism draws for the Royal Gorge region is rafting on the Arkansas River. From Buena Vista to Salida to Cañon City, the river is a magnet for adventure seekers as well as for those just wanting to relax and enjoy the rugged beauty of the area.

Rafting packages can range from half-day to full day trips with different levels of experiences: from a more relaxing float to an exhilarating, white-knuckle adventure. There are many different outfitters to choose from, click here for a list.

The photos here were taken from viewing deck at Five Points (between Canon City and Cotopaxi) and the Tunnel Drive Trail overlooking the river outside of Cañon City [click photos to enlarge].
