For each tour, groups of 10 voyagers meet inside the outpost before filing into a shuttle that whisks them to the mountaintop, where they embark upon a six-zipline adventure high above Idaho Springs. Tours begin with a safety briefing as guests ready their helmets and harnesses. Once their carabiners are safely affixed to the cloud-scraping cables, guests push off to dangle their feet above treetops and enjoy the sweeping, mountainous landscape painted with the oranges, reds, and yellows of autumn. The tour lasts about three hours, after which guests return to their cars with CDs filled with photos of their journey. Tours run through October on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Arkansas Valley Adventures

Paddles slice through churning waters, keeping rafts on their course down Clear Creek as it cuts through the Denver Mountain Parks . At the base of the red crags of Gore Canyon, the white-capped water of the Colorado River foretells rafters’ trips through daunting class IV and V rapids. Elsewhere, guests make like protoplasmic coat hangers as they zipline over the scenery of Idaho Springs.

But rafting trips and zipline tours are just the beginning. Arkansas Valley Adventures leads all kinds of expeditions through Colorado’s mountains and valleys, tossing in ATVs, hot air balloons, helicopters, horses, and fishing rods with the paddles and ziplines. While flying down the Eagle River explorers will have plenty of chances to get in touch with their rugged side and ask ancient rock faces whether the paleo diet is an apt reflection of the habits of early humans.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience. I felt the staff was kind and knowledgable.

Our guides, Reed and Greg, were really friendly. My friend and I had a great time and will definitely go zip lining again. Would have loved if videos of our adventure were available in addition to the pictures.

I purchased the groupon to take my small group of employees on a team building adventure. Everyone was so excited and we all had a blast! The guides were great! very patient with the ones who were hesitant and nervous and made it even more exciting for the braver thrill seekers in the group! We came home with a CD of hilarious pictures that will keep us laughing about our trip for a long time!
