 Brown's Canyon White Water Rafting in ColoradoThis is a wonderfully convenient trip if you only have half a day to enjoy the river.

Paddle down 10 miles of Colorado's Arkansas River in Browns Canyon.  Miles from ordinary - a wilderness area unique to Colorado rafting.

Experience the fun and excitement of rafting several Class III/III+  whitewater rapids such as Canyon Doors, Pinball, Zoom Flume, Big Drop, Staircase, Widowmaker, and Raft Ripper.

You will enjoy rafting the Arkansas River's rapids for approx. 2-3 hours (but can vary in actual time depending on the water level).  Lunch is available before or after your trip in our Noah's Ark riverside pavilion and can be added to your half day Colorado white water rafting adventure.

From taking us down Brown's Canyon in its unmatched beauty
and  whitewater, to the guides who care deeply about our well-being and that we have a great time, Noah's Ark stands alone in their ability to provide the trip for your group that they will never stop talking about.
