This summer has been different than most, to say the least. With COVID-19 wreaking havoc and stay-home orders in place, whitewater rafting in Colorado got off to a late start in 2020. However, by mid-July, most whitewater outfitters are up and running – some at full capacity and others with limited operations. Colorado whitewater rafting deals abound if you know where to look!
This season, whitewater rafting companies are experiencing an uptick in private rentals for families and groups because there is limited contact with people outside your immediate party. Traditional outings are still being offered with limited contact.
Right now, whitewater is one of the few group activities you can do in the state. Currently the state of Colorado is requiring anyone age 10 and older wear a mask or other face covering whenever in an indoor space. Most whitewater outfitters circumvent this issue by keeping gatherings outdoors and practicing social distancing when possible.
If you’re tired of being cooped up at home and need to get out, whitewater might be your exhilarating answer to the current monotony and negativity that’s seemingly coming at us from all angles these days.
Below, we’ve culled the best whitewater rafting in Colorado right now. We’ve sprinkled in a few of our own exclusive deals to sweeten the pot. Check ‘em out!
