American Adventure Expeditions is the only Arkansas River rafting outfitter with two riverside facilities. With rafting launching points in Buena Vista and Canon City, we are able to show you four spectacular stretches of the Arkansas River like no one else! Each Colorado rafting section has its own unique personality.

The only thing better than a Colorado rafting trip on the Arkansas River is sleeping underneath the stars in ‘rustic comfort’ and doing it all again the next day!

After an exhilarating day on the water, relax and share the day’s adventures around the campfire as your guides take care of everything…from preparing the meals to providing the evening’s entertainment, they’ll do more than just get you down the river!
