In addition to the whitewater rafting, duckie trips, stand up paddle boarding, jeep tours and transportation services listed on our website, we love working creatively with people to design a custom itinerary specific for their event

A ½ day of whitewater rafting and a ½ day of jeeping for your family reunion? We can do that.

A private jeep tour with the love of your life to a breathtaking mountain vista for a proposal? We’ll make sure there’s ice in the cooler for the champagne.

The sky’s the limit on what we can co-create. Give us a call and we can help you determine the right activities for your set of circumstances and group specifics. To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve highlighted a few more examples below of custom-designed events involving Family, Friends, Couples and Kids

Such As Weddings, Family Reunions, 50th Wedding Anniversaries:
When accommodating a large group of varying ages and abilities, we can recommend options that will ensure that everyone has an adventure equal to their abilities.

For instance, kids can paddle in duckies alongside adults who’d rather relax on an Upper Colorado float trip. Or half of your group may be excited for a splashy, intermediate Class III stretch of whitewater while the other half is excited to explore the Colorado history, wildflowers and wildlife of a jeep tour. When the group reconvenes, we can even drive you to dinner at the historic Minturn Saloon.

Such As Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties; Girls’ Day Out; or High School Reunions:
Nothing boosts the comradery and bonding between friends like a shared outdoor adventure. Here are some ideas for customizing a friend-filled event:

A Bachelor Party Rafting Adventure on The Numbers, our Class IV trip on the Arkansas River, followed by a gourmet deli-style lunch or BBQ and an afternoon touring the local whiskey distilleries.

an Upper Colorado River raft trip followed by wine tasting.

A Girls Day Out on stand up paddle boards and duckies on the Upper Colorado with yoga instruction, salmon salads, fresh fruit and sparkling water at lunch.

such as Anniversaries, Proposals, Vow Renewals and Date Nights:
The breathtaking beauty of the Colorado Rockies is ultimately romantic and we are equipped to get just the two of you out to some pretty dramatic locations. Getting out in nature is the ultimate way to unplug  and reconnect intimately with each other.

We can custom design an afternoon Jeep tour to a stunning mountain vista during peak wildflower or fall foliage season, accompanied by a bottle of wine and boxed hors d’oeuvres. Or a private afternoon float trip down the Upper Colorado with champagne, imported cheeses and a secluded beach to toast your enduring love. If your love loves history, we can set you up with a picnic lunch and a jeep tour to visit a Colorado ghost town or Camp Hale where 10th Mountain Division soldiers trained on skis to prepare for alpine battles during World War II.

Such As Birthday Parties or Multiple Family Vacations:
Our Dinosaur Discovery Rafting Trip is already designed to be the perfect rafting event for kids who love fossils, rocks and dinosaurs.

A Jeep Tour to a Colorado Ghost Town with a picnic lunch, ghost stories and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

A Birthday Party Float Trip down the Upper Colorado with duckies, balloons, games, and cake and ice cream. Most of our guides are fun-loving jokesters but we can throw in some red clown noses for good measure.

Whatever type of event you have in mind, we are excited to work creatively with you to transform your vision of it into a fun-filled, memory-inspiring reality. The more lead time we have, the more likely we’ll be able to accommodate your wishes so call us soon to start collaborating.
