Mild to wild, a rafting trip in Glenwood Springs will no doubt be a memorable one. Expert raft guides not only know every rapid, hole and hot spring on the waterways, their stories make for excellent entertainment on the river! Trip highlights often include navigating rapids with names like Upper Superstition and Tombstone. Further downriver, when water levels permit, guides like to stop at hot springs that bubble up at various points along the Colorado River. There are also plenty of places to dive in, swim or get in a splash clash with other rafters.
Glenwood Springs’ commercial rafting outfitters have decades of experience delivering whitewater excitement to people of all ages and abilities.

Companies offer a variety of excursions typically half-day or full day trips but look for other options that include multiple runs of more thrilling rapids or rafting combos with activities like ziplining, horseback riding or cycling.
