Guided inflatable kayak tours in Salida, Colorado
Kayak the Salida Town Run on the Arkansas River
This inflatable kayak tour is a unique way to experience Colorado’s Arkansas River. The beginning of this trip is mostly flat water. This gives you time to learn how to paddle, ferry across the river, and catch eddies. A few class II rapids will be encountered. End the day with a trip through the Salida Play Park (class III) or you can get out before the park and walk to the take-out. This is considered a beginner stretch of water, but will be a challenge for first timers. Participants must be at least 12 years old, in good shape, and strong swimmers.
