Raft under the Royal Gorge Bridge

Whitewater rafting near Colorado Springs

The best way to see the Royal Gorge is on a whitewater rafting trip down the Arkansas River. Challenge legendary rapids like Sunshine Falls, Sledge Hammer and Boat Eater on both half day and full day Royal Gorge rafting trips. On the full day you get to raft Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the morning, stop for lunch, and paddle the Royal Gorge in the afternoon.

The Royal Gorge has it all!

The Royal Gorge has everything you could want in a Colorado whitewater rafting trip – big rapids, grand geologic features and intriguing human history. Experience the wonder of the Royal Gorge with the whitewater professionals.

Paddle Boat or Oar Boat

Paddle and be part of the action or request an oar boat and enjoy the ride. Oar boats or paddle-assist are recommended for groups with small children or adults who do not want to paddle.
