Elk Mountain Expeditions (EME) opened its doors in 2012 with the intent to bring a more personalized experience to the rafting industry. After 10 years working with many large rafting companies around the country we decided to start a company that is free of all the problems that accompany big business rafting. Smaller trips with highly trained guides, no hidden fees, and attention to detail set us apart from other companies in the Roaring Fork Valley. At EME, we are dedicated to providing excellent customer experiences on and off the water.

Come out and see the difference a passionate and dedicated team of employees can make on your next river adventure. We are excited to share Aspen's beautiful rivers with you and your family.

Brilliant day. Wayne is a brilliant guide. We felt very confident in his skills and he also made the experience really fun and exciting. Would definitely satisfy thrill seekers but we felt as safe as is possible on white water. This company is a small outfit and are concerned with quality and they deliver quality and fun!

My wife and I took our family fly fishing with Guides from Elk Mountain Expeditions and they were awesome. My kids are 7, 11, 14. We had never been fly fishing before. They met us on time and as requested took us to an easily accessible place. They had great equipment for everyone: waders, boots, poles, hats etc. All really... More

Took a family Class III rafting trip on the Upper Roaring Fork and it was great. The guides, Wade and Spencer were solid. Very qualified and personable. They seemed like they were enjoying their jobs and enjoying life - lots of fun to be with. We also thought the price relative to other activities in the area was a bargain.

Our family of 4 had an amazing experience with Elk Mountain Expeditions! Our youngest daughter (10) was nervous about rafting, but I trusted the advise of the lovely woman who answered my call and explained that the best option for us would be the Type II&III rapids. We had a fantastic morning and enjoyed the expert guides who were full... More

My father in law and my 9 year old son did the roaring forks trip this morning. The guides were very knowledgeable but at the same time hilarious. The rapids were great considering the lower water this time of the year. One of the best parts was the smaller groups...they only had four rafts on the water. Also some of... More

I was terrified to try whitewater rafting and tried to book a scenic float down the river. I'm SO grateful that the woman who answered my call to Elk Mountain insisted I try Class II and III rapids instead. My husband and I felt very safe and it was one of the most fun things I've ever done in my... More
