Find Your Perfect Adventure

Rafting + Rock Climbing



Pack plenty of adventure into one day with AVA’s Rafting + Rock Climbing package!  Head out on the excursion with our experienced guides.  They will coach you along the rock face above the Arkansas River Valley, then lead you tediously down the river rapids during the afternoon.  We have options for all skill levels, so bring the whole family!



Buena Vista is the perfect destination for you and your crew, as you can do a multitude of activities from this location only!  View the Collegiate peaks in the Arkansas Valley from a new height while climbing the cliffs, and venture through world-class whitewater under Colorado’s big sun.


We want you to enjoy everything Colorado has to offer in the simplest way possible, that’s why we created adventure packages so you can try your hand at plenty of adventure… all in one day!

When you arrive at our outpost north of Buena Vista, our experience guides will get you all geared up for your rock climbing trip.  You’ll navigate your way up the rock face and learn the in’s and out’s of climbing before you head back to our outpost to indulge on chicken fajitas with all the fixings.

After you fill your bellies, you’ll make your way to the river and hit some incredible whitewater.  The Browns Canyon is a popular run with mid-class rapids, while the Numbers are a bit more thrilling and will push you to your limits.
