Where to Go Whitewater Rafting in Estes Park

The Estes Park area offers an amazing assortment of opportunities to get outside and enjoy our beautiful natural scenery, including whitewater rafting.

Head to the Poudre or Colorado Rivers for a thrilling day of drops, bumps, splashes and fun. Several whitewater rafting companies operate in Estes Park (although river access is a short drive away.)

The companies will outfit you with all the gear and safety equipment you need to hit the water. Knowledgeable, friendly guides will lead you through adrenaline-pumping rapids with names that don’t lie—Pinball, Roller Coaster, Maw of Death and Pine View Falls, to name a few.

First timer, or traveling with kids? Don’t worry, there are plenty of beginner-friendly routes. As a bonus, you might spy wildlife including eagles, bighorn sheep and deer.

Here are two of our top picks for whitewater rafting in Estes Park:

  • Rapid Transit Rafting stands out by offering transportation from Estes Park to the river, included in the price of your rafting excursion. They offer full-day and half-day whitewater rafting experiences on the beautiful Upper Colorado River that include a scenic drive through Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as half-day trips on the Poudre River in the summer.
  • A Wanderlust Adventure offers rafting trips for everyone from families with kids to adventurous thrill-seekers. You’ll need to drive 90 minutes from Estes Park, but the drive through Big Thompson Canyon is almost as much fun as the rafting itself.Bottom of Form
