From exhilarating whitewater to peaceful floats along flat lakes, canoeing in Colorado can be a varied experience depending on the kind of trip you want to have.

Outfitters across the state can set you up with a canoe and paddles and either guide you on a canoeing trek or just point you in the right direction. Colorado State Parks are some of the best spots to dip your paddle in the water, but there are rivers and lakes all across the state that cater to canoers.
