BROWNS CANYON

Experience the Best Colorado Rafting on the Browns Canyon National Monument Full Day Trip. Browns Canyon National Monument, on the world-famous Arkansas River, is the most popular whitewater rafting destination in North America. Thrilling rapids such as Pinball, Zoom flume, Big Drop, Staircase and Devil’s Punchbowl, and the infamous Seidel’s Suckhole make this fantastic whitewater stretch one that shouldn’t be missed.

This trip offers everything you’re looking for in a fun and exciting rafting adventure; Plenty of moderate-level whitewater and exciting class 3+ rapids, with picturesque 14,000′ peaks & spectacular canyon scenery. This splashy adventure is great for all experience levels, from first-timers to seasoned rafters, and includes a riverside lunch.

My husband, son and I took the Browns Canyon Full Day Rafting trip. The trip was amazing! Weather was just fabulous – could not have asked for a nicer day! WEnt down the Arkansas River for a couple of hours and then stopped on the side of the river for lunch. Our guides put out a beautiful deli style lunch. The rapids were so much fun! – Kathryn S.

What a good time! We did a full-day trip in Browns Canyon and it only got better as the day rolled on. The whole experience was epic. Our guide had us laughing and looking forward to the ext fave full of whitewater. Total confidence in their ability to keep us where we needed to be and in the meat where we like it. – Matt D.

It was evident from the beginning that Performance Tours takes safety very serious. The lunch that was prepared for us on a nice sandy and shaded stretch of the river was awesome! The local knowledge our guide has regarding every stretch and rock of the Arkansas River was astounding! We also saw a large group of bighorn sheep. We highly recommend this company! – RP
