Suggestions for Colorado towns, white water rafting

Jump to last reply

Hello! On June 19, I'll be leaving for Colorado with my two children, ages 11 and 13, for a 9-day vacation. I would like some suggestions on 2 items: 1) the best town to finish out our trip and 2) recommendations for a white water rafting outfitter

Here's what we have roughed out, and you'll see that we'll be in Fort Collins for a bit as we're meeting a friend who lives there and will be traveling with us.

June 19 - Fly to Denver in a.m.; visit Boulder in afternoon. Overnight in Fort Collins.
June 20 - Explore Fort Collins. Visit brewery; check out bikes from Bike Library and ride around town. Overnight in Fort Collins.
June 21 - Drive to Estes Park. 10-2 Go rock climbing with guide from Colorado Mountain School. 4 p.m. Check into YMCA of the Rockies for 3 nights.
June 22 and 23 - Estes Park/RMNP --
June 24 - Depart RMNP; drive to Steamboat Springs to explore and spend overnight

For the remainder of the trip -- namely, June 25 and June 26, we would like to visit one more fun town and go white-water rafting and possibly ziplining.

Qs: We've talked about going to Breckenridge, which sounds like a fun and interesting town and that has biking and white-water rafting nearby on the Arkansas River. Would this be our best bet, or would Glenwood Springs, with rafting on the Colorado and exploring Glenwood Canyon, be a smarter choice?

Then, depending on which town we pick, which rafting company should we go with? There seem to be many, all touting their seasoned, safety-conscious guides and years of experience. Also, should we book ahead or can we arrange a rafting trip for the next day once we get into town? Lastly, are these companies with their combo rafting/ziplining offers a good bet, or is it better to book a zipline tour separately?

Appreciate any recommendations.

We have to back in Denver by 5 on June 27 to fly out.

Thank you!
