The Best Whitewater Rafting for Labor Day Weekend

 In Colorado river adventures, Whitewater Blogged

Many consider Labor Day to be the end of the summer season and your last chance to have some outdoor fun in the sun. Why not send summer off with a bang and spend the long weekend rafting the best whitewater stretch in the country: Arkansas River – Browns Canyon National Monument.

Your serene float down the Arkansas River gets a little more intense as you head through Big Horn Sheep Canyon and it's class III rapids.

Arkansas River rafting trips for Labor Day

Browns Canyon is hands down the most popular, most thrilling stretch of whitewater. And now that it’s officially been declared a National Monument, it’s more popular than ever. Spend three days surrounded by the granite walls of the canyon, and at night you’ll camp in luxury on the canyon banks.

Gourmet meals will be prepared by our guides and you’ll sleep in all-weather tents, or you can drag your sleeping bag outside and sleep under the stars. As you relax around the fire, local wildlife will stop by for a drink from the river.
