Frisco Whitewater Rafting

Colorado is known for being a world-class outdoor destination, and Frisco is right in the middle of it all. It is the perfect basecamp for any Colorado activity, especially whitewater rafting. Frisco sits right in the center of some of the tallest mountains in Colorado, meaning lots of snow, and in the summer, lots of rafting options from those melting snowcaps. Frisco provides access to some of the best options for both seasoned experts and those new to river rafting in Frisco. Sitting just over an hour from Denver, it can be easily accessed from the front range of Colorado and is close to many other popular destinations in Colorado. Frisco is located off of I-70 and is near communities like Dillon, Breckenridge, Copper, Vail, and Keystone. Frisco offers stunning mountain views in every direction and is located near the beautiful Lake Dillon.
