Royal Gorge Full Day Rafting Trip

Why We Love This

  • Class IV (V) Rapids
  • Majestic Scenery
  • All Necessary Gear Included

The best way to see the Royal Gorge is on a whitewater rafting trip down the Arkansas River. Challenge legendary rapids like Sunshine Falls, Sledge Hammer and Boat Eater on both half day and full day Royal Gorge rafting trips. On the full day you get to raft Bighorn Sheep Canyon in the morning, stop for lunch, and paddle the Royal Gorge in the afternoon.
