Glenwood Canyon Half-Day Raft Trip

Your experience starts by meeting at the Defiance boathouse in No Name, CO in beautiful Glenwood Canyon (which is just 2 miles east of the community of Glenwood Springs). There, we will gear you up, talk about the trip, and introduce you to your river pro. Then we'll shuttle up the canyon to Shoshone where we will put-in on the Colorado River. You'll find action right away as we navigate down the Class III Shoshone section. We'll follow that up with 2+ hours of scenic canyon float with occasional splashes and opportunities to jump in the water through lower Glenwood Canyon and into the community of Glenwood Springs. Class I–III  Trip Length: 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours (dependent on river flow) Departs daily @ 9:00am and @ 1:00pm Check-In is 45 minutes prior to departure Requirements: Paddlers must weigh at least 50lbs to raft through the Shoshone rapids. Paddlers under 50lbs (but over 30lbs) will join us at Grizzly Creek, which is just below Shoshone rapids. Rapids aren’t your thing? No worries. We can still get you out there by putting-in below the Shoshone rapids at Grizzly Creek (aka the Scenic Canyon Half-Day Float).
