Starting out at over 10,000 feet above sea level, the Colorado River
makes a 1,450 mile journey from the high peaks of the Rocky
Mountain National Park to the Gulf of California in Mexico. Ancient
in age,(5,000,000 years old) the Colorado River landscaped the
countryside, forging the Grand Canyon in its path. The Colorado
River basin has been inhabited by humans for over 8,000 years.
We run our trips on the Mighty Upper section of the Colorado River,
located 14 miles outside of the town of Kremmling. It is rated at mild to
moderate on the stretch we run. Perfect for families and first time
rafters, guests get to enjoy easy rapids with no experience needed.
Those looking for white-knuckle rapids will want to seek out more
advanced stretches of river.
