Upper Colorado River Rafting, Class I-III: Kiddos as young as four, grandparents still young at heart, and everyone in between will enjoy our whitewater rafting trips on the Upper Colorado River. With the trip meeting spot in Kremmling easily accessible from Winter Park, Fraser, Grand Lake, Summit County, Granby, and Steamboat Springs, it makes a great stop on your Colorado vacation or an easy adventure for the friends or relatives coming to visit. You’ll float past beautiful scenery and historic cabins, get to try your hand at mild whitewater, have the chance to feel the waters of natural hot springs and experience a fantastic jumping-off rock during your Upper Colorado River rafting adventure.  Details and rates.

Clear Creek River Rafting, Class II-IV: Kick it up a notch, as Emeril would say, on a whitewater rafting adventure on Clear Creek. The trip meeting spot in Dumont is easily accessible from Winter Park, Grand Lake, Granby, Denver, Idaho Springs, Georgetown, Summit County, and Vail so it’s easy to add a Clear Creek river rafting adventure to your mountain experience. Never paddled before? Consider the 1/3 day beginner trip. Want something more challenging? Choose the 1/2 day run. For the 1/2 day, we recommend prior whitewater rafting experience and a good wetsuit before you rock and roll on this world-class Colorado whitewater as it tumbles down the mountain and through historic Idaho Springs.  Details and rates. 

Overnight Rafting Trips: Two and Three Day Adventures: If you are looking for an overnight experience, these two- and three-day adventures make wonderful whitewater rafting vacations. On these overnight trips, you’ll have the chance to enjoy the river during the day, take hikes in the late afternoon all while enjoying the perks of camping in Colorado.  Details and rates. 

Group trip information: MAD Adventures strongly urges groups to book in advance.  Groups of 10-14 receive a discount of 5% for every person in the group.  For groups of 15 or more, the group leader gets a free trip and every person receives a 10% discount.  Details here.
