Hi, my husband and I will be arriving in Boulder, CO on August 5th and staying through the 13th. We are interested in the day package (1/2 day rafting, 1/2 day horseback riding)...we are beginners in that we have never rafted but are both physically fit ( I teach bootcamp classes as well as run marathons/ triathlon) Do you have recommendation as to which level rafting we should do? We don't want to just float/ coast. Also do you have suggestion as to which day we should shoot for? and what is the pricing for this?
