Aspen, CO Based Whitewater Rafting Guides
We at Elk Mountain Expeditions are starting our third year as a rafting company in the Roaring Fork Valley. Our owners, James & Lange, have been boating in and around Aspen, Colorado their entire lives and are passionate about sharing their love for whitewater rafting with you & your family!! Our goal at EME is to bring a more personalized rafting experience to your family’s vacation.
We offer a trip for everyone’s adventure level! Slaughterhouse is a spectacular Class IV section of whitewater, located just minutes from downtown Aspen. The Upper Roaring Fork is an exciting class III trip that is the perfect entry-level whitewater rafting trip for the whole family. If you’re more interested in scenery than excitement, the Lower Roaring Fork is the perfect rafting adventure, complete with beautiful views of Mount Sopris and the occasional wildlife sighting.
We and Elk Mountain Expeditions are dedicated to bringing people together on the river. Watching a family of three generations come together on the river in one raft with no river experience, only to learn later that it was the highlight of their entire two-week vacation around Aspen, Colorado was the half-day raft trip they took down the Upper Roaring Fork River with Elk Mountain Expeditions. Providing these experiences is why we do what we do. Teaching a group of complete strangers to rely on and trust each other while navigating Class IV Whitewater is why we do what we do.
At Elk Mountain Expeditions we employ the highest quality guides in the Roaring Fork Valley. With an average of five years of commercial whitewater guiding experience, the guides at Elk Mountain Expeditions highly trained and are also full of character. These people are what make life on the river so wonderful! Join us for a rafting trip and experience first hand the personalities that make rafting so addicting!!
