Bighorn Sheep Canyon offers spectacular scenery and amazing whitewater perfect for the whole family.

Come experience one of the most popular trips on the Arkansas River through Bighorn Sheep Canyon, located near Canon City, Colorado. Tons of fun class III rapids like Shark’s Tooth and Spikebuck to keep everyone happy and wet. A great trip for first timers or those looking for an intermediate trip. Lots of wildlife like Bighorn Sheep, Blue Herons, and Mink along the banks, and geology and history make this a fun and educational trip.

We are one of the highest rated companies on the Arkansas River, check out our phenomenal reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Facebook.

Do you want more time on the river? Full day trips are twice as long and include more rapids like May Tag and Lose Your Lunch, and spectacular views as you raft more of Bighorn Sheep Canyon.

Your guides will prepare your monumental sub sandwich, fresh fruit, chips and salsa, and desert while you relax beside the river. Special dietary considerations? No problem, just let us know when you book the trip and we’ll prepare something appropriate and delicious.
