Echo Canyon River Expeditions

How we're addressing COVID-19

Here at Echo Canyon River Expeditions, our primary focus has always been and continues to be the safety and health or our guests and staff. We are closely monitoring the updates and guidelines set forth by county and state agencies with regard to COVID-19. We are following all necessary precautions and guidance as advised by our county and state agencies to that end.

We are currently accepting reservations for the 2021 summer rafting season. Our 8 Mile Bar & Grill restaurant is open, and hours of operation can be found here. Our Royal Gorge Cabins lodging options with luxury cabin rentals, glamping tents, and tent sites are currently available for nightly rentals.

No. Guests are not required to wear face coverings while rafting. You are welcome to wear a covering while rafting if you prefer to do so, but we encourage you to consider a synthetic neck gaiter sun buff since they are much more comfortable once they get wet.

All Echo Canyon staff are required to wear face coverings while on transport vehicles with guests. Raft Guides are not required to wear face coverings while guiding rafts.

At this time we do have face coverings available for sale in our retail store. However, this should not be relied upon – please bring your own face covering!
