Family Rafting Trips

Family rafting trips in Colorado

There aren’t many outdoor adventures that better bond a family or group of friends than a family white water rafting trip in Colorado.

Colorado boasts some of the most exciting whitewater and breathtaking scenery in the country. Family rafting in Colorado offers an ideal combination of thrill, relaxation, and connection to nature. Best of all, we’ll plan the whole trip for you!

At Echo Canyon River Expeditions, we’ve been taking families for the ride of their lives since 1978. Whether your family is made up of young kids or teenagers, we have you covered. We offer white water rafting for kids of all ages and experience levels. With half-day, full-day, multi-day, and package options, we have a number of family rafting trips for you. Take a relaxing float down the river on our Scenic Float trip, or if your kids are a bit older and looking for more excitement, give our Big Horn Sheep Canyon Trip a try.

Big Horn Sheep Canyon

The premier family rafting trip in Colorado. The most popular experience we offer – for the little adventurer or the kid-at-heart.

Family white water rafting trips are a great way to bond with your kids

A family rafting trip might just be the most fun you and your kids have all year! You’ll paddle through waves together, laughing as you come out the other side. There is nothing quite like getting wet and wild as you all splash down the river!

Get the most out of your family rafting trip by adding on more mountain adventures. We offer package add-ons like ziplining over the rugged canyons and chugging alongside the river on a picturesque train ride.

Our guides are kid-approved!

Our family white water rafting trips let you sit back and relax as our guides take over entertaining your kids! At Echo Canyon, we specialize in white water rafting for kids. We’ll ensure that your kids are having the time of their lives, but also make sure they’re taking safety seriously.

We tailor each trip to the specific needs of your family – whether you have a family full of adventurers or of first-time rafters, we have you covered. We know how to encourage those who are a bit more timid, while reeling in the ones who should be taking the rapids more seriously.

On your family rafting trip, all you need to do is relax

When you embark on a family rafting trip with us, we take care of everything, including:

Your safety is our priority

Whether this is your family’s first trip down the river or your tenth, we know that your family’s safety is the first thing on your mind.

Safety is our top priority, from the quality of equipment to the education and river training our guides receive.

Every one of our guides receives much more than the minimum required training, to ensure that they know how to respond situations that may arise. When it comes to white water rafting for kids, our guides receive additional training, because our priority is keeping your little ones safe. We also lead every group through safety instructions before hitting the water so you can be prepared.
