My group of eight had a blast going down the Arkansas River with Andrea leading our two boats. Both informative and exciting, I would definitely recommend Brown's Canyon if you're in the area. Eddyline Brewery down the street had good beer and pizza too.

Like floating through a road runner cartoon with all the red sandstone. Crystal water, unique formations, and cooler temperatures make this a great experience. See review for AAE.

We went rafting a few days ago and had a great time. Our guide was Andrea who was very knowledgeable and a experienced guide you could tell. I would recommend this rafting company!

There is an Aiirport in BV , but I would imagine it has limited service. Colorado Springs would be the closest airport.
