I have wanted to raft for 20 years and finally did it today. What fun it was. Our guide, Wyatt, was so nice and really helpful. He shared a lot of information an out the river and I didn't want it to end. Erin was really helpful. I would highly recommend Blue Sky.

We travel frequently with another couple and we all love the great outdoors and new and exciting adventures! Of the four of us, I was the only one who had never went white water rafting, so I was a little apprehensive at first not knowing what to expect. That ended as soon as we loaded the raft and hit the... More

We came to Glenwood Springs specifically for rafting, and we had a great experience with Blue Sky Adventures. We did the half day adventure rafting. There were Class III and II rapids, perfect for the multi-generational group we had. Some excitement with some lovely floating through the canyon. Our guide, Joe, was knowledgeable about the geology, wildlife and history of... More

Awesome time thanks to Blue Sky and Calvin! My husband and I spent a weekend in Glenwood and consider ourselves lucky to have found Blue Sky for rafting and bike rentals! Fun, friendly and knowledgeable! We will for sure use them the next we head back!

It was our first time as family to try rafting, we were not sure what to expect so we select the mild one. Called the night before to make reservation and they had no problem adding us in. Finding the place is a little tricky (the office located on the west side of the hotel), finding parking space is even... More

Our guide Wyatt was awesome! He was knowledgeable and made us laugh the whole time. We rode the rapids, got out, they shuttled us back up for another run. Great time!

Top notch company! They provided great hybrid bikes for the shuttle trip up the canyon. Then we rode back toward town on the 14 mile bike path along the river. About 3 miles from the drop off, we stopped and hiked the demanding trail to Hanging Lake and Spouting Rock. The time and effort were well worth it! Such a... More

We did the 11:15 am half-day river rafting adventure. The staff was super friendly and competent. After getting outfitted at headquarters at the Colorado Hotel we took a schoolbus ride east into the Glenwood Canyon, dropping the rafts in at the eastern end of the canyon at what is called Shoshone. Most of the bigger rapids are right at the... More
