Rafting & Kayaking in Vail

Beginning in late April, local guides and outfitters run the Eagle and Arkansas Rivers, offering thrill seekers a chance to splash through the rippling rivers and big rapids of Vail Valley. Colorado rivers are known for some of the best white water in the country. Guests can enjoy anything from a lazy float to a heat-pumping Class V river adventure. Most outfitters offer transporation as part of the raft trip and some even offer overnight adventures. Try the Night Vision Raft Trip with Timberline Tours for something out of the ordinary!


Kayaking is another great way to find adventure on the river. Try maneuvering your own sit-on-top kayak through the Upper Colorado River Class I and Class II whitewaters. Jump right into kayaking for a fun day trip or take a two day lesson starting on Nottingham Lake and progressing to the Upper Colorado river.
