Fort Collins Rafting

Fort Collins Whitewater RaftingJust across from the border from Wyoming sits the laidback mountain town of Fort Collins. Fort Collins is known for great music, good beer and vibrant culture. One other thing Fort Collins is known for is the Cache la Poudre River with some amazing whitewater rafting.

Running 126 miles in length, the Cache la Poudre is Colorado’s only river to receive “wild and scenic” designation, and it lives up to the hype. The craggy river banks, pristine forests, and steep hills offer a whitewater rafting experience unrivaled in natural beauty.

Fort Collins whitewater rafting ranges in difficulty from beginner, family friendly rapids to intermediate-advanced stretches more appropriate for older groups.  Whether you’re looking to raft for the first time or you’ve been paddling for years, you won’t want to miss out on rafting Fort Collins.

Rafting trips can vary in length from a couple of hours to a full day, so if you are planning a Fort Collins rafting trip, consider whether you want to add other activities to your day or if you want to immerse yourself in the whitewater experience.

Fort Collins rafting is just a short distance from downtown Fort Collins, so you can stay in a hotel in town and enjoy all the local attractions while still venturing out to the wilderness to enjoy a rafting trip.  You can also consider camping close to the river and driving into town if you want to spend more of your Fort Collins vacation enjoying nature.
