our most popular trip - ideal for the whole family!
Experience this untamed section of continuous rapids (II-III) on the Uncompahgre River! This 10 mile stretch is the perfect choice for those looking for a fun paddle boat run and incredible scenery!
Exclusive private access to the narrows section of the Uncompahgre River provides a unique and remote experience for paddlers. We are often the only outfitter on this uncrowded section, providing paddlers with a rare opportunity to get off the beaten path. Our put-in is located just 2 miles below Ridgway State Park, and 10 minutes from the RIGS shop, keeping travel time to a minimum.
The majestic San Juan Mountains and mesas fill the back drop for the entire run as we float through State Wildlife Areas, historic ranch lands and the unique riparian ecology of the Uncompahgre river canyon.
Good for Kids 50 pounds and above
PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE LAND USE FEES
Trips will depart promptly at designated trip time and head to the put-in location, just minutes from our shop! Once we arrive at the the put-in, guides outfit each person with PFD's (personal flotation devise) and perform the RIGS "Safety Talk." From here, we split into individual boat loads (typically: 5 to 7 per-boat.) and review individualized instruction from your guide. Once the stage is set for a successful, safe and exciting trip we hit the water!
