Browns Canyon National Monument Whitewater Rafting

Raft through Browns Canyon National Monument with KODI

The Arkansas River is an excellent choice for novice and experienced rafters alike. For Arkansas River whitewater raft trips, guests will be meeting at our one-of-a-kind Arkansas River Outpost (located a mile North of Buena Vista, Colorado) making it easily accessed from Summit County, Breckenridge, Aspen, Salida, and Colorado Springs. KODI Rafting rafts three different sections of the Arkansas River out of this Outpost.

The first is newly designated Browns Canyon National Monument. The recent designation encompasses 22,000 acres and will protect this area for generations to come. It doesn’t take long to realize why this area has National Monument status as it provides an amazing combination of great Class III rapids and fantastic scenery. Browns Canyon National Monument is the perfect rafting trip for families, groups and friends looking for a great summers day on the river.

The advanced trip that departs from our Arkansas River outpost is the Numbers. The Numbers is a step up from Browns Canyon National Monument. With more gradient, this river trip will keep you moving as you navigate the Class III-IV rapids in the 7 mile stretch.

Finally we offer a mild, scenic trip in Lower Brown’s Canyon called Big Bend. This section is a great alternative if you have young children or are looking for a scenic, mild float,  and is ideal for testing your skills in our Duckies (inflatable kayaks). Take in unbeatable views of the 14,000 foot Collegiate Peaks!

Minimum ages vary on The Arkansas and range between 3 and 16.
