6 Tips for Your Colorado White Water Rafting Adventure

  • Anyone can do it.  There are rivers for all levels of experience and courage, even for families with kids.
  • Use one of the certified outfitters listed above with good reviews and a lot of experience.
  • You can pick from a variety of different trips, from half-day to full-day with other outdoor activities.
  • The fastest rapids are typically in May and June, when snowmelt is highest, but the snowpack is different every year and varies on each river.
  • Wear a swimsuit and/or quick-drying clothes. You have to wear a life vest. Some outfitters can rent you a wetsuit.  The water can be quite cold, even in summer. Dress for the weather, with waterproof sunscreen and water shoes or sneakers that will stay on your feet.
