Whitewater Rafting Near Breckenridge

Breckenridge is one of Northern America’s most famous ski resorts. The winter months bring skiers and the summer months lures large numbers of vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts. Developed in 1859 during the gold rush era, Breckenridge has become one of the top resorts in Colorado. The town is loaded with historical old houses, markets, cafes and pubs along its Main Station.

Not far from Breckenridge are several rafting adventures. Here are four:
The Upper Colorado about 20 minutes away provides rafting with mild rapids. Bring your small children, those who want to have fun in a less intimidating environment and those looking to see beautiful scenery on a fun stretch of river. You will see hot springs and occasional wildlife as you float along.

The Blue River about 20 minutes from Breckenridge, runs in May and June. The water can be chilly due to the snowmelt that creates the higher flows. This is a Class III trip geared towards beginner and intermediate rafters. Catch it when you can as the Blue has a short season. You will rate this trip as nothing but FUN.

Travel time to Browns Canyon on the Arkansas is about an hour and 30 minutes. This is one of the most popular rafting stretches in the U.S. As you raft, you will see the snowcapped Collegiate Peaks as you travel through the canyon. It is from these peaks that the snow melts and feeds the Arkansas River. You can choose a half-day or full-day adventure.

The Numbers is just upstream from Browns Canyon so takes about the same drive time. This is a Class IV run that provides plenty of action. You should have experience rafting before you sign up for this adventure. It is not considered a beginner run so get plenty of sleep the night before your trip. You will need to paddle hard as you help to negotiate the frequent rapids. The water can be cold so you will want to dress appropriately. Wetsuits are available for rent from GTR so contact us in you want to reserve one. Guest Rafting Rated 4.7 / 5.0 based on 32 reviews for Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting Adventure
