MINI-MAX RAFTING ADVENTURE IS AN UPGRADE TO OUR MOST POPULAR RAFTING ADVENTURE

Get closer to the river, and MAXimize your adventure. Experience the excitement of paddling down the Colorado River in a 10.5′ Mini-Max raft. Enjoy the excitement of the Shoshone Rapids and the spectacular beauty of the Glenwood Canyon while getting a thrilling raft experience that is sure to be a highlight of your summer!

Mirroring the Half Day Rafting Adventure, the Mini-Max Rafting Adventure begins with an exhilarating 1.5 mile descent through the action filled and continuous Class III Shoshone Rapids. From Grizzly Creek the trip transitions into a more leisurely and scenic section of the river, the experience involves a beautiful float with intermittent splashes and occasional Class II-III waves, guiding adventurers through the 1500' walls of Glenwood Canyon and concluding in Glenwood Springs. Encompassing over 12 miles of river, the Mini-Max Rafting Adventure ensures a perfect blend of whitewater thrills, stunning scenery, and moments of relaxation, truly providing something for everyone. Along several sections of the trip, participants can even choose to swim alongside the raft during the many perfectly warm summer days.

Please Note: Groups must have a minimum of 6 people to book online. If you have less than 6 people in your group please call to reserve.

This trip is an absolute blast!  It mirrors the Half Day Adventure in that it puts on at the Shoshone Boat Ramp and floats a total of 12 miles through the Glenwood Canyon.  It is very different in the fact that you do this float with a maximum of 4 others (plus a guide) in a Mini-Max raft, a more playful and active 10.5′ paddle raft.  Blue Sky Rafting is the only company that runs this trip, so if adventure is what you are after, this is the trip for you. Hanging Lake Adventure Co-op recommends that you have prior Class III+ rafting experience before you jump into this lively boat.

This trip begins at the Shoshone Rapids (an app. 2 mile Class III to III+ section on the Colorado River) then continues downriver for approximately 12 miles (average flows), ending at the Blue Sky Rafting private boat ramp in West Glenwood Springs.

12 years or older and accompanied by a parent if under 18 years old.

3.5-4 hours in total

Blue Sky Rafting
