The Arkansas River features 145 miles of Colorado whitewater with Class II-V rapids. Situated in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, the Arkansas River drops over 5,000 feet over the first 125 miles from the headwaters in Leadville, through the pink granite walls of Browns Canyon National Monument, into the 1,000-foot shadows of the famous Royal Gorge Class IV-V section.

This valley boasts views of the 14,000-foot Collegiate and Sangre de Cristo Mountain ranges that are enjoyed on our many white water rafting trips. It continues through the snowy peaks of the Sawatch Range through Big Horn Sheep Canyon to the finale of the Royal Gorge near Canon City.
