Day 1 of your Three-Day Ultimate overnight white water adventure begins at River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort – six miles south of Buena Vista, Colorado – where you check in with our front office staff, meet your raft guide, and pack your personal overnight dry bags (provided) before being transported to The Numbers launch site upstream. You spend your morning rafting The Numbers, followed by a catered riverside lunch. Advanced rafting continues that afternoon as you paddle through continuous class III-IV rapids on The Narrows section before floating past the Riverside Rafting Resort and heading into Browns Canyon where you will camp for the night. Once at camp, set up your tents and enjoy a hot dinner before relaxing by the campfire, going for a hike, or playing games.
Day 2 of your overnight rafting adventure begins with hot coffee, tea, or juice and a riverside breakfast. After packing up camp enjoy another day of class III-IV rafting in Browns Canyon. Another riverside lunch is provided and your trip will return to River Runners around 4pm. Enjoy a relaxing evening at our Riverside Rafting Resort, and dine at our Riverside Bar and Grill. After dinner you can take advantage of our half price tickets to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, or enjoy your time at our resort where you can take a hot shower, play a game of sand volleyball or horseshoes, or simply relax by the campfire.
Day 3 you will wake up early to hot coffee, tea, juice and a continental breakfast. Then drive yourself down to our Royal Gorge Rafting Center and enjoy a full day rafting trip – lunch included – through Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the world-famous Royal Gorge of the Arkansas River.
