Royal Gorge Mini-Adventures for Adventurers: Dip and Zip

7:00 am – 8:00 am 

Breakfast in Canon City
8:15 am – 12:00 am  

Royal Gorge rafting is for those who want the most whitewater thrills. As the Arkansas River narrows to only 25-feet wide, adventure-packed whitewater rafting trips wind their way through the 1,100-foot cliffs of the Royal Gorge. Famous for its steep drops, huge waves, continuous Class III to Class V whitewater, and spectacular scenery, Royal Gorge’s famous rapids thrill even the most experienced whitewater rafting veterans.

Lunch in the Cañon City

2:00 pm – 4:30 pm    

Flying through the air on a zipline at 40 miles per hour while harnessed to a steel cable is a pure adrenaline rush and the most exciting new family sport on the planet. Zipline tours consist of individual cables stretched over a rocky canyon 150 feet deep. There are hiking trails between takeoffs and landing platforms, though they aren’t very difficult to climb. These adventures have a very high thrill to skill ratio. Anyone can do it, but it takes a little instruction and practice to do it well.

4:30 pm – 6:00 pm  

Relax and relive your day over your favorite brew or other beverage of choice at the Royal Gorge Brew Pub in historic downtown Canon City.
