Whitewater Rafting Forges Bonds Stronger than the Rapids

Colorado River Rafting is a Trip

Visualize the boat’s brow cutting through the swirling, surging water; the sun sparkling on the frothy waves, making tiny rainbows; the abrupt lurch of the craft, as the surging waves suddenly shift direction. The adrenalin is pumping, all senses alert, with nature working overtime to orchestrate a thrill you’ll never forget. That’s what most people think a raft trip entails, but there’s much more going on. Your connection with the other rafters forms a matchless adventure that won’t be forgotten.

Rafting down the Arkansas River on the rushing snowmelt from 14,000 feet peaks is exciting – no doubt about it. But the trip is still safe enough for a family vacation. River rafting in Colorado combines thrilling rapids with quiet stretches, where rafters can take in the spectacular mountain scenery close up. Their mental cameras capture images that will be studied over and over later, once they return home.

Look Past the Surging River and the Drama

There’s one thing even more crucial than the water for making your adventure tour a treasured event. It’s the other people. Some you bring along, like family, friends or group (such as a scout troop). You may think you know each other already, but the time spent on the river forever alters the way you’ll relate back home. That’s the real pay-off from a wilderness adventure. The guides and other rafters also play essential roles in the total experience.
