Denver Day Trip: 24 Hours of Adventure

Mountaintop Zipline Colorado


Looking to escape the heat of the city? We have lots of ways for you to get outside and experience a lot of what life in Colorado is all about! With the Rocky Mountains in such close proximity to the city; just out your back door, one would be crazy not to set a day aside to get outside and experience all that the Rockies have to offer. Here are some suggestions for a Denver day trip: 24 hours of adventure!

AVA offers a number of activities to fill every minute of a 24 hour stretch of time. Just a quick 30-45 minute jaunt from the heart of the city, our Idaho Springs, Co outpost is the perfect option for a quick day or weekend escape from the hustle and bustle that many encounter daily. Here, you can not only head out for a day of rafting and ziplining, ziplining and ATVing or rafting and ATVing, but you can mix one of these combinations up with a scenic and historical train ride. Don’t try and stuff all of these activities into one day, as either you or one of your fellow adventure seekers is bound to run out of steam.



Another option this summer is to head over to our Granite, Co outpost for an overnight Brown’s Canyon rafting & zipline adventure! Brown’s Canyon is the nation’s favorite stretch of whitewater, and for good reason! Our overnight combo trip features an inclusive late-day launch into the canyon, before camping riverside at one of the most scenic campgrounds anyone could wish for! The trip continues on the second day with rafting, after which, you will zip from the top of our course, right back down to our outpost. Brown’s Canyon camping is accessible only by raft, so prepare for a unique and private experience, as the only other people you’ll run into will be other adventurers, just like you!

If you are looking for 24 hours of adventure close to home, our Idaho Springs location will be the best bet for you! However, if you’re wanting to experience true rural Colorado and the full majesty of the Rocky Mountains, the 24 hours in Brown’s Canyon & Zipline overnight trip is not to be missed. We have tours launching several times throughout the day in Idaho Springs and our 24 Hours in Browns Canyon & Zipline overnight trip launches on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. As the rafting season comes to an end, many a persons are eager to get on the river while they can, so availiability is limited. Book you adventure today or give one of our sales agents a jingle at 1-877-RAF-TING and they will help you plan the perfect trip!
