World-Class Whitewater in Buena Vista, CO

The Arkansas River isn’t in our backyard, it IS our Backyard!  People always mention that more people raft on Browns Canyon every year than any other stretch of river in the world.  No Kidding!  It’s really that much fun.  Plus, If you’re staying in Buena Vista, you can have an amazing whitewater experience and still get warm and dry with time to explore our Historic downtown. Buffalo Joe’s Rafting Trips gives us a terrific overview of what a day on the water might look like in the video below.  For a list of Rafting Companies in Buena Vista, check out the Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce.
