Echo Canyon River Expeditions
Whitewater rafting Colorado's Arkansas River is one of the most popular and fun vacation destinations for families and groups regardless of age or ability. Echo Canyon River Expeditions has been providing mild to exciting half-day or multi-day whitewater rafting trips in Colorado since 1978.
Our most popular trip is spending half a day rafting the Arkansas River through Bighorn Sheep Canyon also known as the Parkdale run. This Colorado vacation is perfect for families and first time rafters. Consider this family-friendly vacation idea: spend a half-day rafting on the Arkansas River followed by a freshly prepared lunch then take a scenic train ride on the Royal Gorge railroad on our exclusive Raft and Rail trip. Perhaps a Royal Gorge river adventure will provide enough whitewater fun for all. Give us a call, bring the family and … enjoy our guided rafting tours!
Echo Canyon can customize a Colorado river rafting trip to accommodate you and your family or group - for beginners, intermediate rafters and extreme "bring-on-the-rapids" thrill seekers - with half-day, full-day and multi-day (and some evening) river rafting outings.
Challenging rapids combine with great scenery on an assortment of exciting whitewater river rafting trips on the Arkansas River and the Colorado River. The Arkansas River through the Royal Gorge is home to some of the best continuous whitewater. The Numbers and Royal Gorge offer non-stop action while Bighorn Sheep Canyon, Brown's Canyon and the Colorado River offer excellent family rafting opportunities for those seeking an introductory Colorado rafting experience.
