Aside from world class ziplining, AVA offers many other adventures around Colorado. We offer some of the best whitewater rafting in the country right in the same locations as both of our Buena Vista and Idaho Springs Zipline Course locations.
In Idaho Springs, spend your morning rafting down the Clear Creek in intense and exciting rapids until you finish your day zipping through the trees at the same location! At this outpost, you can choose a rafting trip that fits your skill and experience level and group it with a zipline tour for a fun filled day.
At our Buena Vista location, you can zip through our alpine canopy course before venturing out on the Arkansas River for a day of paddling through the famous Browns Canyon. Rafting trips in Buena Vista feature all skill levels and offer trips lasting ½ day to multi day trips. Our guides are world class and will help you every step of the way. All gear is provided on the rafting and zipline trips so just bring your family and friends and prepare to have a blast.
AVA offers rock climbing lessons and rappelling for the beginner or intermediate climbers. Our climbing trips are ideal for a first timer hoping to learn the ropes and advance into self-supported excursions. Our AVA guides will help you acquire the skills that you need to master the basics belaying, rappelling, and setting anchors. Follow a morning Arkansas River whitewater rafting trip with an afternoon rock climb and rappel.
Horseback riding is also available in the Arkansas Valley. Arkansas Valley Trail rides offer the chance to see Colorado the old western way. Rides offer stunning views and a beautiful journey fun for the whole family.
