Wilderness Aware Rafting & Colorado Adventures

BUENA VISTA, COLORADO

ADVENTURES: zip line, white water rafting, horseback riding, family trips

Running beginner and intermediate rafting tours on the mighty Arkansas River, plus advanced Class V whitewater trips, Wilderness Aware Rafting adds even more variety in the outdoors through its Colorado Adventures operation. The partner runs a zip line high in the snow-capped Rockies, near Leadville, Colorado (not far from popular jumping-off towns like Breckenridge and Vail). A two-hour zipline tour is open to all skill levels and children who weigh 55 pounds and up. Featuring six double zip lines, ranging from 400 to over 800 feet long, the wire ride comes to a grand finale on a 100-foot-tall sky tower. The lofty adventure tour is open all year long.
