rafting arkansas Rafting Browns Canyon

Had a great time rafting Brown's Canyon with AAE on a full-day trip. This was only my second time rafting and everything about the day was very well-organized and fun. Allison was an outstanding guide from start to finish. Will likely plan a trip with them again in the future!

rafting meals eating Family Vacay!

We loved our trip! We had the Irish guy, Brian, he was the BEST! He guided us brilliantly. He entertained us with stories. He got to know us and ask questions about our family. He made the day simply perfect.

outdoor activities with kids hiking Great Family Adventure!

We booked the Browns Canyon trip to celebrate our youngest's 6th Birthday. He had the time of his life. It was just enough thrill to keep our teenagers happy and plenty of time to meandering down the river to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend this ride and company for your next rafting adventure.
