About The Numbers Rafting Experiences on the Arkansas River

Full Day Tours

As an American Adventure Expeditions exclusive, you’ll start your adventure paddling through the majestic Browns Canyon National Monument. It’s the perfect way to warm up, with some awesome Class III rapids and epic Colorado scenery. At the conclusion of the morning portion you’ll be treated to a delicious BBQ lunch prepared by your guides and served in our riverside Beer Garden.

Once you’ve refueled, it’s back to the river and time for the white-knuckle roller coaster that is The Numbers! Non-stop action from start to finish is waiting for you on this fast, narrow, and technical stretch of whitewater. This is the ultimate rafting adventure in the Buena Vista area!

This trip departs from our Buena Vista Rafting Outpost. Check in 45 minutes prior to departure.

Half Day Tours

The Numbers rafting section is one of the most difficult sections of commercially rafted river in Colorado. Although this section winds its way through an awesome high alpine setting, you’ll probably be too busy paddling to even notice! This section is narrow, rocky, and technical with relentless drops and continuous white water!

This trip departs from our Buena Vista Rafting Outpost. Check in 45 minutes prior to departure.

What an Adventure!

The view was beautiful. The rapids were so much fun. The guide we had Chad was the best. He will never forget Big B(Buzz) and the new name he got from him. Chad was the best. We were with my parents and aunt and uncle all over the age of 80 then it was me and my husband. Chad was funny and a lot of fun. Thank you Chad for taking care of our group!

Highly recommend!

We were nervous as it was our first time rafting but our guide Justin explained everything very clearly and made us feel safe, by the end we felt like pros! What a great trip, would definitely go with American expeditions again and would love to try some class 4 rapids next.
