Royal Gorge Rafting

The Royal Gorge is Colorado white water at its finest, and is consistently considered one of the top 10 rafting runs in the country! This Colorado treasure is an epic sight from any angle, but from the bottom up, it’s truly breathtaking.  Don’t gawk for too long, though, because when our expert Guides yell, “paddle!” they mean it! 

  • Raft beneath the highest suspension bridge in the US (1,100 feet tall)!
  • Half Day, Full Day, and Double Dip options available.
  • Enjoy the only riverside facility in the Royal Gorge Region (more time on the water & less time on a bus).

The rapids on this section of the Arkansas River are big and challenging, but spaced just enough for you to enjoy the Royal Gorge Bridge above and the towering canyon walls all around.
