Group Rafting and Adventure Packages
What better place to reconnect with family than out on the river? With whitewater rafting routes spanning beginner to expert level, we have something for everyone. Easier routes will allow for a more relaxing experience where you can find time to rekindle relationships and catch up on life. More advanced routes require dynamic teamwork, the perfect opportunity for strengthening relationships and making lasting memories out on the river. When you raft with us, you can leave all the worries behind and let our guides take the helm.
Recognized as one of the most fun team-building activities around, rafting is a collaborative, yet rejuvenating experience that can improve your team dynamic in the workplace. Consider stepping out of your comfort zone and taking on the challenge of rafting as a team! If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, consider taking your coworkers on a scenic float—a great opportunity to take in Colorado’s scenic beauty and converse with your peers.
Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties
There’s no party like a river party! Fully customizable to your group size and ability level, we’re prepared to host your party both on and off the river. With the Drift-In Restaurant and Bar located at the end of our float, it’s the perfect place to celebrate a fun day on the river with your groomsmen and bridesmaids.
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Summer Camp
Located in the heart of the Rockies, Salida is the perfect location for Scout Groups and Summer Camp opportunities. Float the river, go ziplining, hike Browns National Monument, and still have time to roast a marshmallow before calling it a night. In addition to rafting, we’re available to book multi-day tours, additional activities, and camping near the Arkansas River. View additional activities below.
Church Groups and Youth Groups
Our convenient location at the river’s edge allows for a safe yet inspiring space for your church or youth group to recreate, gather, and even camp if desired. Our venue allows for a fully customizable experience fit for all ages and groups. At our headquarters, Church Groups and Youth Groups alike can find an idyllic connection with the great outdoors not too far from home.
Riverside Weddings and Elopements
Our location on the Arkansas River doubles as the perfect venue for an intimate outdoor Colorado wedding or elopement. Surrounded by rugged mountains, the Browns National Monument, and positioned on the shores of the Arkansas River, we invite you to utilize our spaces to create your dream wedding—float included! Say “I do” and dance the night away on the river’s edge. We’re happy to accommodate ceremonies, receptions, overnight camping groups, and any other creative event combinations to assure the perfect event. Learn more about our venue spaces below.
Celebrate with the ultimate team-building experience—a group rafting trip!
