Climb & Overnight Raft Package

Experience a complete Colorado adventure by combining rock climbing, whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River, and camping in Browns Canyon National Monument!

Start your day at one of our various rock climbing sites, located in the shadow of the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area, where you will scale a natural granite wall and rappel off a 70 ft. cliff. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate climber, our guides will be there to instruct and encourage you.

Enjoy a delicious deli-style lunch, then we’ll help you pack up your gear for the water! We’ll provide tents, cooking gear, food, sleeping pads, and a dry-bag for your personal items.

Jump in a boat to raft through Browns Canyon. Finish your day hanging out around the campfire before falling asleep to the sounds of the Arkansas River. Dinner and breakfast will be prepared and provided at your campsite. In the morning, enjoy several more miles of whitewater, and a lunch on the river as you finish rafting the canyon. You’ll return with enough time to hang out in beautiful Buena Vista, visit the Mount Princeton Hot Springs, try out the Browns Canyon Adventure Park, or start your drive home.

This was our first whitewater rafting trip. We had 3 kids from 6-13. Avery was our guide and did an amazing job getting us down the river. The experience was way better than we had imagined! Everyone loved it. Would absolutely go again. Thanks to Avery for a most memorable trip!

Ok thrill seekers, this one’s for you! If you’ve ever wanted to try whitewater river rafting then “Noah’s Ark” is here to make that dream a reality for you. A little more than a hour South of Breckenridge you’ll find @noahsarkrafting based in Buena Vista along the Arkansas River. Although our adventure traveled along Class 1-3 rapids, they also offer tours including Class 4 rapids 😳. The entire staff was prepared, supportive, and professional.

We had an amazing time on our trip with Caleb as our guide! It was very clear that the Noah's Ark team had the most experience as we saw other groups struggle through rapids that we had no problem with. We enjoyed our conversation with our guide, the lovely scenery and a perfect day for rafting. Highly recommend Noah's Ark!!

We had an awesome time rafting Brown's Canyon! Joel our rafting guide was a laid back experienced professional, who was easy to get along with. He did an excellent job at guiding and instructing us through the rapids we encountered along our way. We would highly recommend this guiding service to anyone who wants to have an awesome time on the Arkansas River. The whole staff at Noah's ark were very courteous and friendly. We will definitely be visiting again on our next trip to the Buena Vista area!

We had an amazing rafting trip this summer! Noah’s Ark was outstanding across the board. They were professional and it was obvious safety is a priority for them. But they were also personable and engaging. Our guide made an effort to get to know us. She was also very knowledgeable about the river and the area in general. She made sure we saw unique rock formations and interesting things. I highly recommend and would definitely use again.


The climbs that we offer are rated between 5.6 and 5.8 on the standard North American Rating System (Yosemite Decimal System). These climbs are great for both beginners and those who have climbed before. Our guides will place you on a climb that is appropriate for your experience level.

At our primary rock climbing site, Bob\’s Rock, you will rappel approximately 75 feet and climb to a height of approximately 65 feet.

We can provide two or three different climbs and up to five rappelling stations to keep as many people in your group participating at once as possible. The size of your group will dictate how many systems we set up. While not participating, guests are invited to encourage others climbing or take time to relax and enjoy beautiful scenery. Our guides can help by leading initiative games with those waiting for a climb or rappel.
