Learn To Paddle Your Own Canoe

Colorado canoeing vacations and adventure trips on the Gunnison River with Noah's ArkImagine guiding your canoe through the classic red rock canyons of the Lower Gunnison River in the western Colorado plateau. The Gunnison River rushes from its central Colorado origins and slows to a pace just right for one of the finest three day family canoeing trips the West has to offer. Winding through the scenic Colorado Western Slope, the lower section of this beautiful waterway provides the perfect Class I and II stretch of whitewater surrounded by an unforgettable classic western river canyon.

Extraordinary Colorado Scenery.

Noah's Ark canoeing trips have been developed  to give both families and groups a more interactive adventure where you can learn to guide your own canoe and experience the best in riverside camping. While reclining in the stern of your canoe, you may notice peregrine falcons, blue herons or bald eagles drifting high in the warm summer breeze. The familiar and soothing sound of the rushing water of the Gunnison River will relax you as you steer your canoe past rocks and navigate the bends of this scenic waterway.
