Take the Family to the Colorado River

Sep 16, 2008
When you think of whitewater rafting, you think of adventure in the great outdoors. But many people believe that taking a Colorado river rafting trip is not right for a family vacation. But with a family rafting trip, you will be able to have the adventure of a lifetime and still be able to share it with all the member of your family.

Colorado rafting trips are perfect for the whole family as long as you choosing the right vacation package. To take your whole family, you will want to choose a package that is family friendly. There are many of these packages available. You will need to utilize the right equipment for those who are really young and much older, so the family vacation rafting packages are perfect. If you want to take a family whitewater rafting trip, ou can easily find a company to go with that take people from ages four years to 90+. You will also be able to get rafting trips for those with special needs.

Colorado River rafting trips usually take you and your family through a mild beginner class II rafting trip. This trip is suitable for all ages and will start around the Collegiate Peak mountain range for most packages. You will have a professionally guided excursion on the river, completely with a oar powered raft. A family trip such as this one takes about an hour and a half. You will expect to encounter a fun, splash filled trip through mild whitewater that combines adventure on the river with breathtaking scenery to admire.

But by far the most popular whitewater rafting trips for families are the intermediate whitewater rafting trips. These trips are class III and are able to accommodate anyone age 6 and over. This is a fun and exciting whitewater rafting trip for first time rafters and also experience rafters. So if you have hit the whitewater before, you can use this opportunity to get the whole family involved in an activity that you can all enjoy. This particular trip can go through challenging class III rapids throughout the Colorado River, but is mostly mixed with the calmer whitewater sections around the Bighorn Sheep that you can see from the river.

You can also choose more challenging trips if all of the member of your family are a little bit older. Whatever particular whitewater rafting company to choose to go with will be able to advise you how young a person can be for any particular trip. And many companies will also offer additional amenities for your trip including lodging, food, and other perks.
Remember that your river guide needs to know if you have any special needs or dietary concerns if you are being provided a meal or snack on the trip. This will help them to be prepared in case something happens to you or your family members while on the river. But you will be able to have some much fun hitting the rapids.
