We did a half day Brown's Canyon rafting trip and had a great time! The company seemed to be safety focused and we had a lot of fun!

What You'll Get


Whitewater rafting pits swift wits and arm strength against the current, much like plugging a leak in a submarine with only one’s thumb. Challenge Mother Nature with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward a rafting trip from American Adventure Expeditions in Buena Vista. This Groupon is valid for any of the following trips:

  • Half-Day (up to $68 per adult)
  • Full-Day (up to $112 per adult)
  • Deluxe (up to $75 per adult)
  • Overnight ($275 per adult)<p>

American Adventure Expeditions’s experienced guides shepherd rafters of all experience levels down four sections of the Arkansas River, navigating rapids of varying intensity and trip lengths. Plunge into The Numbers’s powerful class IV rapids gushing through tight passages and down steep drops or tackle the more family-friendly class II and III waters found within Brown’s Canyon for mild bumps and splashing contests with ill-tempered salmon. Both runs, along with Big Horn Sheep Canyon and the turbulent Royal Gorge—which runs underneath Canon City’s 1,100-foot-tall suspension bridge—boast half- and full-day excursions down their tumultuous channels. Alternatively, overnight journeys fill the daylight hours with paddling adventure before groups retire to the riverside to set up camp and gather round a fire, reminiscing about the day’s thrills and mourning the ill fate of Steve the Slippery Paddle. Lasting through lunch on the second day, overnight trips include four meals and use of American Adventures’s 8-acre recreational outpost, camping equipment, and hot showers.

About 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.
