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.Our Frisco river rafting adventures begin in our Pioneer Sports location, conveniently located next to Walmart. We offer rafting options at destinations like the Blue River and options that are a short drive away on the Numbers and Browns Canyon National Monument. The amazing river rafting just outside Frisco gives you spectacular views of some of Colorado’s tallest peaks, spectacular wildlife, and some of the most unique environments in the country. Each rafting adventure is truly an unforgettable experience and is the perfect way to experience Colorado this summer.
The Numbers is one of our favorite stretches of river near Frisco. This section of river is for those looking for the most extreme thrills Performance Tours offers. Here you will battle over a half dozen class IV rapids over a 6-mile stretch. It is a fantastic choice for those looking for a heart pumping, scenic, and challenging adventure. Because of the difficulty of this section of the river, all guests choosing this package must be at least 16 years old and in good physical condition. This age requirement is sometimes lowered to 14 when flows are lower, so be sure to check before booking a trip. Discover your wild side with a tour on the Numbers with Performance Tours today!
The Blue River runs through Breckenridge and feeds into Lake Dillon. This is the closest option for rafting near Frisco and is a Summit County favorite. Whitewater rafting on the Blue River is milder compared to other nearby options but is a great way to get on the water and enjoy rafting in one of Colorado’s most scenic destinations. Depending on the current snowpack and water levels, commercial rafting trips on the Blue River may not be offered. This section of the river is best toured early in the season when the river is flowing at its highest level. It is a great option for those exploring Frisco and is suited for every skill level!

Take a Break in Frisco after Your Whitewater Rafting Tour
After a morning of whitewater rafting, reward yourself with fresh baked goods and a fantastic latté from Butterhorn Bakery and Cafe, on of the best breakfast and lunch restaurants in Frisco. Looking for something a little heartier later in the day? We recommend either Kemosabe at Silverheels for American food and sushi or The Lost Cajun for heavier and well-spiced meals (plus a chance to try their fried pickles and hushpuppies!).Staying in the area? Book a stay at one of the hotels in Frisco. Everyone agrees that the Frisco Inn on Galena is one of the best places to stay in Frisco. They roast their coffee on-site and have plenty of accommodations and amenities like a game room and a gourmet breakfast. It is the perfect escape either before or after a fun rafting trip. All the rooms taken? See if the Frisco Lodge has space, where you have access to Frisco’s historic Main Street with plenty to explore during the day. Or head to the Hotel Frisco with their spacious rooms and varied accommodation options for travelers and backpackers.
