We have inflatable kayaks available on day three for those interested in guiding their own boat and keeping their adrenaline up. Inflatable kayaks are long skinny rafts that are more stable than hard-shelled kayaks but maneuvered with the same kind of two bladed paddles. These little boats are perfect for those looking for some extra excitement. Our camp for the second night is located on a lush green bench above the river with views of the mountains. One of our favorite things about a 3-day trip is that one entire day is away from cars and phones and responsibilities. We like to think this is the "real world" that many of us have forgotten exists!
Colorado Five Day Arkansas River Tour. If you are looking for a trip that combine several of the Arkansas' best whitewater sections into a great multi-day trip, this may be the one for you. Day one begins in the Narrows, we continue through Browns Canyon on day two. Day three passes through Upper Bighorn Sheep Canyon and day four passes Lower Bighorn Sheep Canyon. Depending on the interest and experience level of those on the trip we can finish the trip around mid-day of day five, or continue through mid-afternoon and finish on a rollicking note in the Royal Gorge. Having specialized in running multi-day rafting trips since 1976, Wilderness Aware has run more overnight trips on the Arkansas than any other outfitter. This experience gives us the competitive edge when it comes to organizing your adventure.
This our favorite multi-day trip on the Arkansas and the longest trip available in Colorado during the mid to late summer. We like this trip because the group can really get to know each other and develop a sense of community during the course of the week. This trip is perfect for those with a week off and looking to really get to know Colorado.
