The Arkansas River is the most popular for rafting in Colorado largely because of the unforgettable sections that run through Bighorn Canyon, Brown’s Canyon, and the Royal Gorge.

The Royal Gorge—featuring Class IV to V rapids, steep technical drops, and huge waves—is for the adventurous rafter. Expect infamous rapids like the Sledgehammer, Wallslammer, the Narrows, Boateater, and Sunshine Falls to keep you on your toes.

The OutThere Colorado crew braved the Royal Gorge in July for the summer film shoot. Come with us as we charge through the waves!
