In the Victorian era, extreme sports were limited to teatime without doilies, writing witty satires about earnestness, and riding a pennyfarthing down a mild incline. Today's Groupon would shock such staid sensibilities: for $30, you get a half-day rafting trip, with equipment fees included, through Bighorn Sheep Canyon from Echo Canyon River Expeditions (up to a $64 value for adults and up to a $54 value for children 12 and under). A user fee of $5 is included in the value. The maximum value determined for this deal is based on guests taking the 9:30 a.m. trip, who also get a lunch at the river (valued at $10) with their expedition. All trips check in 45 minutes prior to scheduled departures, with daily trips in the morning at either 9:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. and in the afternoon at 2 p.m.
Echo Canyon River Expeditions' whitecap wunderkinds have rafted swashbucklers through Colorado's thrilling and picturesque valley rapids for more than 30 years. The half-day Bighorn Sheep Canyon/Parkdale Run trip through the Arkansas River's Bighorn Sheep Canyon remains a popular choice for families, first-time floaters, and fish-people. After the friendly staff outfits guests with equipment, each voyager will board their buoyant apparatus and take to 10 miles of the river's surging swells for a healthy mix of exciting paddle action and serene sightseeing. During the approximately three hours of the trip, one of Echo Canyon River Expeditions' knowledgeable guides will dish on the natural and historical wonders of the environs, including the local bighorn sheep and their fascinating hopscotch tournaments, while helping rafters dodge the rapids effortlessly and safely.
Rafters under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. There is a suggested minimum age of six and weight of 50 pounds.
