Whitewater Rafting

Activities in Aspen, Colorado

Aspen whitewater rafting is an exciting way to get outdoors and enjoy the nearby Roaring Fork, Colorado and Arkansas rivers. There are several outfitting companies in the area that can help plan your trip, whether you’d like a milder time with class II / III rapids perfect for families and new rafters, to invigorating class IV / V rapids for more adventurous rafters.

The complete list of companies includes Aspen Whitewater Rafting; Whitewater Rafting, LLC and Blazing Adventures. Each organizes their options in a different way: Aspen Whitewater Rapids offers a number of different Roaring Fork rafting routes and other locations with a few special options, including an educational "Eco-Trip" for a new perspective on the valley and its history. Lunches are included on several of them.

Whitewater Rafting, LLC, offers easygoing short, half day and full day rafting trips, along with "double", "double extreme" and “triple extreme” courses down the Shoshone Rapids—concentrating exclusively on this spot, multiple trips and multiple lines down the whitewater trips are offered. Experienced rafters are sure to be satisfied!

Alongside more challenging options like their “Slaughterhouse Raft”, “Pine Creek & Numbers” route and their version of the triple Shoshone raft, Blazing Adventures offers a full day on Brown’s Canyon and different rafting variations in the mornings and afternoons. Routes on the Colorado River and Roaring Fork rivers with Duckies—individual inflatable boats—are also available.

Many of these companies also offer private tours and other options to make your day of white water rafting near Aspen complete. We hope you’ll enjoy this and other summer activities in Aspen during your next visit to Hotel Lenado.
