The premier whitewater rafting trip in Southwest Colorado,
is the Black Canyon’s Gunnison Gorge.
This is a wilderness trip where encounters with people are limited and sightings of wildlife are common. Desert bighorn sheep, river otters, mule deer, eagles, hawks and other bird life are regularly sighted. This steep-walled narrow canyon is one of the best examples of exposed pre-cambrian rock outside the Grand Canyon—a geology lesson deluxe. The views of the canyon are breath taking, the scenery is unmatched.
Rafting the Gunnison Gorge is a participatory trip: paddling as a team helps guide your boat through the rapids. Our riverside safari camps are comfortable outdoor dinning and sleeping experiences. Black Canyon Anglers is the largest and most experienced outfitter on the Gunnison Gorge.
