Ready? Set? Raft!

If you’ve been thinking about going whitewater rafting, the time is now! Why? Well, now that the cold months are behind us and the snow has melted, the runoff causes the water levels to rise. The amount of snow in the high country usually dictates how much water flow we’ll have. If you’re traveling with minors, depending on the water flow, a minimum age might be recommended, however, parents have the last word.

Rafting season is from April to September, but from mid-May to late-June is when things get really exciting, especially on the Arkansas River. This is when we get high water, meaning that there will be big waves, swift current, and large hydraulics. Three characteristics that will make your rafting experience that much more fun. It’s not just about the river, it’s about the magnificent natural landscapes that surround them, and you can be sure there is never-ending natural beauty all around.

Whether you’re a beginner whitewater rafter or an experienced one, if you’re addicted to adrenaline, you’re going to love a good whitewater rafting trip this season.
