The Arkansas River, North America’s most popular river, just received the honor of being voted one of the “Best Whitewater Rafting Destinations for 2014” by Men’s Journal, and we have adventures (for the whole family) to prove it!  Whether you are looking for a calm float down the Colorado River, an exhilarating family adventure on the Arkansas River, or a daring class IV/V trip down Clear Creek,  AVA will make sure you get the whitewater experience of a lifetime!  Let our highly experienced guides show you how to experience Colorado wilderness through the power of its waterways!

Only an hour drive from Vail, CO, our Granite Outpost provides everything you will need to enjoy adventures ranging from whitewater to our mountaintop zip-line course. Our courses are built into the natural features of our alpine properties and include cliffs, old-growth pine trees, and ravines. Our seven ziplines total almost 4,000’ and offer a 900-foot dual race line to compete high above the trees. Or, for the ultimate adrenaline rush try our 40-foot free fall drop. Make it a weekend adventure for your family with one our “Rafting & Zipline” packages – where you get 50% off a raft trip when you book at the same time as your Mountaintop Zipline tour.  Just mention promo code: 50RAFT14 to have a complete mountain fun adventure on the water and in the trees.

Better yet, take a mid-week break to enjoy the fresh flow of the river, rejuvenating mountain breeze and warm sun by booking a multiple-day or full-day weekday package. We are offering 20% off our full day and overnight trips when you depart Monday-Thursday. Just mention promo code: 2014EARLYBIRD when you call to book your adventure.

Build your dream adventure in the Colorado Mountains. Activities include fishing, climbing, horseback riding, stand up paddle boarding, inflatable kayaks, rafting, ziplining and more!  The possibilities are endless with AVA this summer. We are currently running trips on four separate rivers near Vail right now. So come join us on the water, in the mountains and in the air, the rapids are great and we look forward to seeing you soon!
