US$128.49
Overview
Enjoy a full day on the Arkansas River with this guided whitewater tour that sets you up for success, even if it's your first time rafting. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon it is an ideal choice for beginners and families, featuring mild class I-III rapids and plenty of tranquil stretches to catch your breath and soak in the gorgeous Colorado scenery.

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.
