We did the half day family friendly (ages 2 and up) 1pm raft trip with Forest from AVA on Monday, Sept 19. It was FANTASTIC and far exceeded our expectations. It was our first visit to Colorado (from FL) and we wanted to do rafting but I am 10 weeks pregnant and knew we were limited. I emailed the company... More

I did the three day float trip in a ducky (inflatable kayak). There were just enough rapids to make it fun wihtout being too scary. The scenery was beautiful and the stars at night were incredible. The food was great, although that might simply be because everything tastes better after a day on the river. I can't say enough good... More

AVA was professional, courteous, and had all the gear we needed to enjoy our cold and rainy day on the lower Colorado. Seth, our guide, was awesome. He was funny, informative, very skilled, and above all, chill and personable. We'll book with AVA again. Mark and Amanda

We took my 75 yr old mother on a 1/2 day float trip on the Colorado River in Kremmling. It was awesome! Seth was our guide, and he did an excellent job keeping us as dry as possible. He also educated on the history of the area. It was such a beautiful float through the canyon. I highly recommend AVA.... More

My mom and I did the beginner half day white water rafting course with AVA and had a blast! Our tour guide, Mary, made us feel so comfortable on our first trip, was super knowledgable and overall super friendly and welcoming!

The day could not have been better--and not just because of the fish caught! AVA is a first-class operation and our guide, Brian Baca, was truly one of the best fishing guides I've ever had the pleasure to fish with and learn from. We fished the stretch of river from Rancho del Rio to State Bridge by raft and were... More

My wife and I took the half-day inflatable kayak trip earlier today. The stretch of river is incredibly beautiful and provides a great balance of mild-moderate rapids and long stretches where you can relax and enjoy the scenery. Two passing trains and a stop to jump off a 30 foot cliff into the river were added bonuses! Our guides (Katie,... More

We took my 8 yr old and 12 year old on the 1/2 day trip down the river. It was a great time and good first experience with white water rafting. The tour we took was more for beginners which was fine for us. We had Kyle as our guide and he did awesome!

Took my daughter, 12, on the half day float trip. Everyone was friendly and helpful the minute we walked in. Our guides, Ken and Mary, were knowledgeable, friendly, and enthusiastic. You could tell that they loved their jobs! I highly recommend this trip!
