Ready for summer and some warmer weather? Tell us about it! Here at Sage, the summer season offers an endless array of adventures, including one of our favorites: whitewater rafting!

As the sun starts to shine and melt the heaps of snow winter brought, spring runoff flows down the mountains of central Colorado and announces the beginning of rafting season. From whitewater adventures to scenic family float trips, the wild rivers of Colorado are the perfect setting for lifelong memories. Come on a Colorado whitewater rafting trip with us!

When it comes to whitewater rafting companies in Colorado, we truly do have something for everyone! Then, take a look at our rafting classifications and book a trip.

Class II Rafting Trips

Our Colorado River family rafting trips on the upper part of the river are perfect for families of all ages. You’ll raft through incredible canyon scenery, experience small rapids, and have plenty of time to play and splash in the River. Participants as young as 3 years old can get in on the fun, so bring the whole family whitewater rafting in Colorado!

Class III Rafting Trips

We have a wide variety of Class III trips available on the Colorado River, Gore Creek, the lower Eagle River, and the Arkansas River. These whitewater trips are a ton of fun! Some of our class III trips are available to rafters as young as 6-years-old, while others can be more challenging. Depending on the age of participants, how much time you have, and what you’d like to experience, we can help plan the perfect summer rafting adventure.

Class IV+ Rafting Trips

For the adventure seekers, we have incredible class IV and V trips available on the upper Eagle River and for Arkansas River rafting. For rafters ages 16 and up, these are some of the most memorable rafting trips in Colorado – or even the entire country. The upper Eagle River and Arkansas River whitewater rafting trips are the best for those adrenaline junkies who are ready for an eventful time!
