Shoshone | Glenwood Canyon Half Day Raft Trip | Glenwood Springs | Family Friendly Rafting.jpg

THE ALL-AROUNDER.

WHITEWATER: CHECK. SCENery: CHECK. BACKFLIPS: CHECK.

GLENWOOD CANYON HALF-DAY

If we only had three hours to spend on the water and wanted to show our friends or family what it's like to experience the thrill of Class III - IV Colorado whitewater rafting and the beauty of Glenwood Canyon, this would be the trip we'd take them on. And if we only had two hours because everyone had plans after the trip, well, we'd probably cancel them so we could all go rafting.

$59 per guest 13 & over

$49 for Happy Paddlers (12 & under) Includes snack, drink, and some Happy Paddler swag!

Because we believe everyone deserves a little adventure in their lives! Rapids aren’t your thing? No worries. We can still get you out there by putting-in below the Shoshone rapids at Grizzly Creek (aka the Scenic Canyon Half-Day Float).

IT’S EVEN BETTER TWICE.

SHOSHONE X 2 WITH AN HOUR OF SCENIC FLOAT THROUGH GLENWOOD CANYON.

DOUBLE SHOSHONE HALF-DAY

At Defiance Rafting, we expect our guides and their passengers to display perfect paddling form when rafting through the Class III–IV Shoshone Rapids. When they do, which is mostly all the time, we reward their excellence by letting them raft it again. When they don't, we make ‘em do it until they get it right, which oddly enough, they never seem too upset about.

$69 per guest ($59 early season)
