September Rafting in Browns Canyon

One Week of September Rafting! 

Each year following Labor Day, the kids are back in school, the Breckenridge gondola stops running, and many people think Summit County is in “shoulder season” or “off season.” Ask those of us who live here and we’ll let you in on a secret – Fall is phenomenal here in Summit County! Trails and restaurants are less crowded, lodging prices drop, the leaves make their golden debut, and there is still so much to do.

Really? A lot to do in “shoulder season”? Yes!  Hiking, biking, scenic foliage drives, fishing, a non-stop lineup of fall festivals including Oktoberfest, and best of all…a fun week of September rafting on the Arkansas river!

September rafting float trip in Colorado

Summer got off to a late start with snowfall in June. Summertime rainfall is more than double over this time last year.  For Performance Tours Rafting, that means our talented river guides will continue to put smiles on hundreds of faces while safely navigating the beautiful waters of the Arkansas River.

Half-day and full-day raft trips will be offered in Browns Canyon National Monument. This class II-III trip remains the steady favorite year-after-year, with its spectacular scenery and suitability for first timers or seasoned rafters. With sections such as Zoom Flume, Siedel’s and Big Drop, you know you’re in nature’s rollercoaster of fun.

If serenity and relaxation mixed with mild moments of splashy fun are more what you have in mind, sign up for a float trip along Squaw Creek. All ages and abilities can partake in this trip and experience the beauty of Colorado fall foliage lining the river banks into the mountains beyond.

This is a Colorado fall you don’t want to miss. Dare we say, it’s worth letting the kids play hooky for a few days to experience our historical season first hand…holding a paddle, of course!

Call Performance Tours Rafting today to book a September rafting trip. The season will continue past Labor Day through September 8, based on current conditions and demand.
