Bighorn Sheep Canyon 6-Hour Whitewater Experience with Lunch
US$128.49
Overview
Bighorn Sheep Canyon offers the perfect blend of adventure and scenery on a family-friendly section of the Arkansas River. This 6-hour tour includes a delicious riverside lunch and miles of whitewater action that will thrill kids and leave adults smiling as well! All trips include an experienced guide who will expertly navigate the rapids and tell stories of local history while pointing out local wildlife. The Bighorn 6-hour trip is the closest all-day rafting near Colorado Springs and is crafted for families and first-time floaters.
What to Expect
Don't just give your family a taste of whitewater adventure, give them the all-day experience on a Bighorn Sheep Canyon 6-hour tour. Bighorn Sheep Canyon is gentle enough to offer plenty of time to take in the mountain scenery, and probably catch sight of a few Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. Plenty of class II and III rapids are sprinkled throughout the trip to keep your whitewater adventurers entertained if not thrilled!

Start your day by checking in at the rafting office located 8 miles west of Cañon City, just one hour from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Arrive 45 minutes prior to departure to ensure plenty of time to change into appropriate river attire in our changing rooms. Your tour guides provide transportation to and from the river, so you can leave your car in the free parking area and utilize the key check service so you don't have to worry about losing your keys. While driving the short distance to the rafting location, guides will provide a comprehensive safety orientation. A few more minutes on the beach with your guide will prepare you for the whitewater adventure ahead.

Midway through the trip you'll pull your raft over and your guides will put together a hearty and delicious riverside lunch. After recharging with quality food, it's back on the river for more miles of family-rafting fun.

Upon returning, you'll have time to change into dry clothes before your guides show photos and videos of the day's adventures. Digital photos and video are available for purchase at an additional charge. Your full day of rafting will leave you soaked and grinning with wonderful memories of whitewater fun.

Loved the rafting trip. Was a lot of fun, but be prepared to paddle. Pictures of the day are pricey.
