What to expect
This stretch of the Arkansas River makes for a great introduction to river rafting. You can expect impressive Rocky Mountain views, some easy splashes and a lot of soul-soothing current. Don’t bother hiring a babysitter for this gentle float, as this trip is appropriate for children as young as two years old.

Great trip!
This was a great chance to experience rafting on the fabulously beautiful Arkansas River. Swany is an experienced, knowledgeable, and entertaining guide who made the trip extra fun.

Smooth rapids with Swany!
What a blast! Swany is theee best guide and he knew exactly how to guide us so we had a smooth ride for the babies and a fun ride for the adults! His jokes kept us laughing so much we knew we were in great hands. So much fun with him and my 2yo grand baby fell asleep. He was crying at first!

Overall it was a great trip. Great for kids. We will be back to navigate the big rapids next time…with Swany!

Great first experience for our family!
Jun 2021 • Family
Great first-time experience as a family doing the Milk Run trip. Our guide Swany did an amazing job getting us prepped and building confidence for us, as well as guiding us during the rafting. We definitely want to come back and try the next level at some point. Very happy with the whole experience and they have a wonderful staff there, positive and patient as well as knowledgeable!

Great family experience
Jul 2020 • Family
Our guide, Hammer, was awesome. So informative and funny always kept us engaged. Our littlest is only 3 and was a little scared. He was so good with her and kept talking to her and getting her to enjoy the scenery. The trip itself is beautiful and relaxing. There were a few welcomed splashes along the way to cool us down and provide a few laughs. I whole heartedly recommend this trip for any family with young children but our 14 year old loved it as well. The entire crew was genial, professional, and informative with a heavy focus on safety. It was so much fun that we're already talking about doing it again.

Thanks for the review! Hammer is great with little kids so it's wonderful to hear he put your daughter at ease. And thank you for mentioning our heavy focus on safety, that is top priority for us here. We hope to see your family again!

Jul 2020
We did this trip with our grandchildren ages 14, 11, and 6. The contactless registration and the friendly staff, all wearing !, made us feel very safe to do this activity in the middle of a pandemic. Our guide was very thorough in training us in how to paddle and the safety guidelines before we started rafting. He was also very good with the kids and made them feel involved; even the 6 year old. He also pointed out points of interest along the way, explaining the history of the nearby mountains, as well as of the local community. We had never been rafting before, and it was a great experience. I highly recommend them and would do it again on a return visit. Exceptional!

While we have made many changes and put lots of new procedures in place this summer due to COVID, we still pride ourselves on offering the same amazing experience we always have. We hope to see your family again.

Great fun and a great guide named Peter
Jul 2020 • Family
We came from Dallas and it was my wife and I and our five year old and nine year old. We did the Milk run and Peter was our guide jas he has a ton of experience and was very knowledgeable about the scenery and navigated through all types of currents. It was a fun ride and we chose it since we have a five year old. He went over all safety precautions and we really enjoyed it. The company is first class and Petra is very helpful with setting up your trip. I strongly recommend this company and can’t thank a Peter enough!!!

Perfect hour float for young families; very pandemic proactive
Jun 2020 • Family
We did the milk run in mid-June, so it was more of a “milkshake run,” but it was a perfectly acceptable flow for a 4yo and 7yo’s first whitewater trip. We got outfitted with PFDs and hopped in the van for a 5 minute trip to the drop-in point. Our guide, Swany, provided a very thorough safety overview before we got in. He and the rest of the folks we met were lovely, had a great sense of humor, and shared expansive knowledge of the natural history of the area. The kids had a blast. Most importantly to the times we live in, this outfitter took every precaution to prevent COVID19 spread, including providing gator masks and regularly disinfecting the vans, boats, and equipment. Two thumbs way up. A must-do on a trip to BV/Salida.
