Nobody does whitewater river rafting in Aspen and Snowmass better than Aspen Whitewater Rafting. Owned and operated by a professional staff that has been guiding our local rivers for more than 20 years. We offer a range of personalized, fun and safe whitewater adventures. We provide exemplary customer service to all our clients, something larger companies would be hard pressed to match. Our priorities are safety and fun, and we do our best to cater to each individual’s needs in order to create the perfect Roaring fork rafting experience. We have some of the best guides in the valley (over half are class IV/V guides), new equipment, outstanding lunches, and small group sizes, yet we offer our trips at an affordable price. Compare our Aspen rafting prices!

Loved every second of it. Adam was my tour guide and he was funny, sweet, and very helpful. Miguel and Chad were amazing as well. The river is beautiful and you get your money's worth. Easily 5 stars.
