“We spent a lot of time deciding between rafting companies in Glenwood, and we’re so happy we ended up with Blue Sky. We’re rafting novices, and this was a great starter trip with some impressive rapids at the beginning followed by a leisurely float down the canyon…”

“Rafting wasn’t even on our list of things to do, but we are so glad we saw Blue Sky Rafting reviews and decided to do it! Their staff are all so great and easy to work with and it’s very reasonably priced for such a cool and memorable experience.”

“My kids and I had an amazing experience with Blue Sky Rafting. We went white water rafting and Shelby was our guide and fellow adventurer. He was the best we could have gotten. He calmed my daughters fears with his really funny and hilarious jokes…. “scouts honor”! Hahaha”

“What a great experience! The Shoshone rapids were perfect for my family. This time of the year the water level is perfect for little ones… Go earlier in the season for bigger rapids. CatJo did an amazing job guiding us safely down the river…”

“We had the BEST time! Our guide Gabbie was so knowledgeable of the river, gave us interesting facts and fun ideas to do in town. I called ahead because I was worried about rain. They were so great and put us on an earlier trip. So accommodating! You will not be disappointed.”
