The Royal Gorge 6-hour trip is the full-day rafting excursion in Colorado that you must experience. Just an hour from Colorado Springs, the Royal Gorge includes world-class whitewater and gorgeous Colorado scenery. Add in the hearty and delicious riverside steak lunch, camaraderie with your guide and fellow adventurers and you have a day of memories you’ll not soon forget!
Start your day by checking in at the rafting office located 8 miles west of Cañon City. Arrive 45 minutes prior to departure to ensure plenty of time to change into appropriate river attire in the changing rooms. Your guides will 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, a comprehensive safety orientation will be provided. 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 at a private riverside landing and your guides will put together a hearty and delicious riverside lunch featuring grilled steaks. 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 we 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.
