    Something for Everyone

    One of the many reasons the Arkansas River in Colorado is so popular is the fact that there are many diverse sections and opportunities which offer family-friendly Canon City rafting trips, to more advanced options for a Royal Gorge rafting experience that rival any raft trip in the Western U.S.

    Canon City rafting, at most water flows during our season, is appropriate for just about anyone. During "high water" though, the Royal Gorge rafting options can be very advanced.

    This typically occurs early in the season - from late May to mid-June, or so. Also available are beginner options in Bighorn Sheep Canyon, which accommodates those looking for a Canon City rafting trip with the kids or for the "nervous novice."

    Another reason we are so popular is easy and quick access to the river and short shuttle rides.

    At Adventure Outfitters we offer Full-Day Rafting trips (which include a delicious lunch) 1/2 day Rafting trips, and Overnight Rafting trips in Canon City, Colorado. Be sure to check out our Specials page for great deals on many of our Canon City Rafting trips throughout the season, as well as Book Early Deals. Enjoy one of our Combo Packages which include a ride on the Royal Gorge Route Train, a zip-line very close to Colorado Springs or a visit to the world-famous Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, coupled with your Rafting trip in Canon City or a Rafting trip near Colorado Springs.

    Colorado Springs residents & visitors are only one hour away from an amazing Colorado Springs rafting adventure. We are roughly two hours from Denver. Our Canon City rafting office is easy to find, we are simply one mile west of Canon City, Colorado on U.S. Hwy. 50. Go to our "Directions" page for details.
