When you have winters as robust as we do, rafting is an exciting way to experience Steamboat and the surrounding area. Head over to Bucking Rainbow downtown for everything you ever wanted to know about rafts and rapids.
They lead trips down the local Yampa river as well as other neighboring rivers with Class IV+ white water. Rafting in our area is for all interests and abilities. Rafting adventures range from mild to wild led by guides who are state, CPR and First Aid certified. Trips are planned with safety, scenery and surge in mind, making rafting one of Colorado’s most popular summer activities.
The amount of adrenaline depends on the time of year you’re planning to visit. A family float in late August might be more of a thrill ride in early June, so if you’re booking your Colorado vacation specifically for a rafting adventure, let our guest services team know so that we can recommend the best week for your visit. We’ll help you choose the perfect rafting adventure for your group based on ages, experience, schedule and type of adventure you’re seeking.
Of course, after a thrilling day in the white water you’ll definitely want a relaxing evening in hot water! Most of our homes and condominiums have the perfect complement to your day on the river, private hot tubs! Start your search for the best Steamboat summer vacation rentals right here.
