  • American Adventure Expeditions
    With diverse backgrounds ranging from studying extraterrestrial fluvial geomorphology to being born in the jungle of Chitwan National Forest in Nepal, American Adventure Expeditions’ certified guides shepherd rafters of all experience levels down sections of the Arkansas River, navigating rapids of varying intensity and trip lengths. Half-day, full-day, and overnight trips plunge into world-class runs such as The Numbers, an advanced route with powerful Class IV rapids gushing through tight passages and down steep drops, or the more family-friendly Class II and III waters found within Brown’s Canyon for mild bumps and splashing contests with ill-tempered salmon. Guides also pair up aquatic excursions with other extreme thrills such as mountain biking and zipline tours for combo adventures, or skip the water entirely during land-based adventures such as the Royal Gorge Route Railroad train tour. Additionally, two outposts sit along the river, and offer snacks, restrooms, and picnic areas.

Vessels row and float through tranquil stretches of current and notorious whitewater runs such as Pinball, Zoom Flume, and Widowmaker. KODI's Arkansas River Outpost acts as a base camp where rafters check out essential safety equipment including life preservers and helmets, as well as a supplementary rental package of a wetsuit, splash jacket, booties, and an Audubon Society pamphlet on spotting rare water molecules (a $10 value). Guides chauffeur parties to their put-in points up river and provide transportation back to the outpost from the end of the run, saving guests the effort of rowing home along winding mountain roads.
