Ziplining in the Rockies
Denver Adventures has Colorado’s longest and fastest zip line network, which remains the only course inside a Rocky Mountain nature park. Some lines are 1,900 feet long; others are 250 feet in the air! This stunning mountain course is equally beautiful in the winter as it is in summer and fall. The fastest lines top out an incredible 60 mph. Zip line tours last anywhere from 2-3.5 hours and can be combined with other adventures such as whitewater rafting and rock climbing. If you’re only looking for a half-day excursion, Denver Adventures is a quick 28-minute drive from Golden CO.
Whitewater Rafting on Clear Creek
Choose between a beginner, intermediate, or advanced half-day whitewater rafting excursion on the speedy Clear Creek or breathtaking Royal Gorge Canyon. Most rafters, regardless of experience, usually start with Clear Creek because it’s much closer to Denver. The beginner run is for youngsters and first-timers, but it still includes 11 rapids, a historical waterwheel, and a drop over Castle Falls. Most rafters select the intermediate rafting trip because it’s perfect for groups of skill levels. It’s a challenging ride as much of the rapids are class III and IV, and the possibility of getting bucked is high. Advanced rafters are in for a genuine treat as this run is a complex, challenging, and exhilarating experience that includes multiple waterfalls, continuous class IV rapids, and stunning gorge views.
Rock Climbing Expeditions
What makes the rock climbing trip with Denver Adventures so fantastic is that no prior experience is needed. Climbers of all skill levels can utilize their hands-on training during the four-hour expedition. The staff hand-selects climbing routes to fit your level of expertise. Challenge yourself at the end of the session to see how much you’ve grown in such a short period! There’s a reason Denver Adventures has the number one outdoor activities in Golden CO, according to TripAdvisor.
