Gorgeous peaks topped with snow, lush forests full of life, sparkling crystal clear blue lakes: these are just a few things that describe the incredible majesty that the great outdoors in Colorado has to offer those looking to find it. But with so many different options for activities available, we understand it can be hard to choose what to learn and what to do. Well, not to fear: AVA Rafting & Zipline is here to help! As your premier Colorado outdoor adventure outlet, AVA Rafting & Zipline has multiple locations throughout the state and is here to help you explore the majesty of the Colorado outdoors.

Endless Landscape to Explore

With the incredibly dynamic Colorado landscape as our playground, there is truly no limit to the number of things you can do when you make the leap to explore the great outdoors. At AVA’s Idaho Springs location (just 30 minutes west of Denver and 45 minutes from Winter Park), you can find a multitude of activities, including ziplining, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and more! You can be sure that when you spend your time with AVA that you’ll find an adventure perfectly suited to you and your group.

Want to see some of the most breathtaking views of the Continental Divide that you cannot find anywhere else? Check out AVA’s Cliffside Zipline! This 6-line course incorporates suspended log bridges, a Surf Zip, and a dual race zip that you can even challenge your friends on. Or maybe you’re in the mood for a bit more thrilling of an adventure? Check out Via Ferrata: The Iron Way. This mountaineering expedition will have you traversing the cliffside via iron rungs, rappelling down a 70-foot rock face, trying out some assisted rock climbing, and finishing up by zipping back down to the outpost.

Some of Colorado’s best whitewater runs are just minutes from AVA’s Idaho Springs outpost as well, and the rapids range from beginner levels to advanced (including the Lower Canyon of Clear Creek, perfect for thrill-seekers!). Don’t think AVA has forgotten about your little ones, kids as young as 6 years old can join in on the fun with some of the lighter whitewater rafting on Gold Rush.

Multiple Locations

Though we’ve talked a lot about Idaho Springs, there are lots of AVA Rafting & Zipline outposts located throughout the state. Further west is their Kremmling outpost, where you can ride horseback through the mountains, RZR your way around the backcountry, whitewater raft the Upper Colorado River, or try your hand at fly fishing! If you really want to get into the Rockies, the Buena Vista outpost runs some of the most popular whitewater in North America on the Arkansas River, including a Mountaintop Zipline tour to send you flying through the treetops, and boasts rock climbing that will get your heart racing!

Colorado has some of the most incredible outdoor scenery and activities available in all of North America, and we would love for you to check out one of AVA’s outposts and enjoy them on your vacation! If all of the activities we’ve talked about today appeal to you, AVA also has constructed packages to make a day full of adventure possible for you and your family.
