Raft Colorado’s Arkansas River through September

A deep snowpack this past winter, followed by record moisture in the high country this summer, has resulted in higher than normal flows on Colorado’s Arkansas River all season. This trend is expected to continue through Labor Day, so grab some friends and plan your next Colorado whitewater rafting trip with River Runners.

Now is a great time to book your whitewater rafting trip. The water levels are prime and the crowds are much smaller.
