Take a wild ride down the Elk Canyon

Splash out on an adventure of epic proportions - the Elk River goes from mild to wild on the lower stretches and is the perfect setting for a whitewater smack-down! 

Canyon Raft Company runs the gauntlet daily; we joined them for a day of big rapids, thrillriding and swiftwater paddling. 

Canyons for days!

It looks like a movie set but this is the real deal.

Can you handle it?

Take the whitewater challenge and emerge victorious from every rapid.

Tranquil moments include glimpses of local wildlife.

The best seat in the house is waiting for you. 

There are no roads or trails along this stretch of river, but as a famous doctor once said...

"Roads? Where we're going we don't need...roads." - Dr. Emmet Brown

One of the best river and whitewater adventures of your life! For an experience you’ll never forget, take the full day trip on the Elk. Find out more here
