Family-friendly (ages 6+) whitewater rafting with Class I-III rapids in most flows. Class IV rapids at highest flows.
Soak in the sights and sounds
Rapids balanced with peaceful floating let you immerse yourself in nature.
A night by the river
After a day of paddling, you'll arrive at our private river landing, greeted by a hot meal and the sounds of the river lapping against the shore as you sleep.
Welcome to the splash zone
Our friendly guides know how to get the whole family soaked and smiling.
What to expect
Your 24-hour rafting trip on the Arkansas River includes an afternoon half-day rafting trip, a freshly prepared hot camp meal, camping at our private river landing, a hot breakfast in the morning, and another exhilarating half-day rafting trip trip on day two! Your guide will be with you every paddle stroke of the way on this Echo Canyon exclusive overnight trip. If your group includes a few adrenaline junkies, you can choose to raft on the class IV Royal Gorge twice in two days. Or, if you’re looking for a gentler introduction to whitewater rafting, you can raft class II-III rapids on your first day on the river and class IV rapids on the second. (Rapids are classed on a scale from I-IV.) We also love showing families with kids the Bighorn Sheep Canyon section of the river, which offers perfect rapids for children as young as six. If you have time and are interested in a longer trip, like our two or three day overnight rafting trips, check out our extended multi-day trips page.
