Enjoy rafting and horseback riding all in a single day. It’s the best of both worlds with KODI Rafting’s Saddle Paddle adventure. Ride with Rusty Spurr Ranch, Colorado's premier horse outfit, through the country the Ute Indians rode over 100 years ago; and venture down the beautiful Colorado River through one of the most historic and scenic canyons in the country.
Take a two-hour guided trail ride, surrounded by breathtaking views of the mountains in the sage-covered high desert, to the sheltered tranquility of the aspen and evergreen-filled mountain forests. After a hearty lunch at the ranch, guests are shuttled down to the Upper Colorado River for a four-mile raft trip along a scenic stretch of river, which includes a stop at natural hot springs. It’s the perfect way to explore the canyon that can only be seen from the water.
Minimum age 6. Departure place/time: Rusty Spurr Ranch, 9:30 a.m. Price: $142 per person.
