Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the rafting haven of two incredible rivers: The Roaring Fork and Colorado. Both rivers give rafters the opportunity to experience some of the finest whitewater rafting in the country! The Colorado River cuts through Glenwood Canyon and provides 16 miles of a thrilling whitewater adventure. You'll get more than a taste of Colorado with two miles of Class III-IV Shoshone Rapids to calmer waters, rugged canyon walls, and wildlife. When the conditions are right Shoshone rapids can provide the thrill of a lifetime with class IV strength. The Roaring Fork River winds through a beautiful valley in the shadow of magnificent Mount Sopris. Rafters can expect to see Bald Eagles and other wildlife along the banks of the scenic Roaring Fork River.
