Fort Collins whitewater rafting on the Poudre River

Nothing says Colorado like skiing in the winter and whitewater rafting in the summer—and nothing says whitewater rafting like running the rapids of the Cache la Poudre River just up the Poudre Canyon from Fort Collins. Team-building and river rafting are a thrilling combination, and A Wanderlust Adventure leads two rafting trips throughout the summer—our Taste of Whitewater and our Blast of Whitewater. We recommend our Taste of Whitewater adventure, which is accessible for almost everyone!

Whether you’re an office team, a sales team, a project-based group, or a sports team looking for a Fort Collins team-building activity, a whitewater rafting adventure is an exciting experience that nudges people out of their comfort zones in a unique way to work together and build a rapport with the people they work with every day.

Dropping down 10,758 feet from Poudre Lake, at the base of Sheep Rock just a few feet east of the Continental Divide, the flow of the Cache la Poudre runs steep and fast, and at times rather narrow. For experienced rafters, this wild and scenic river offers the challenge of some class IV rapids. For most of the river, however, the difficulty remains around class II, III, and IV. You can choose the level of difficulty for your Fort Collins sports team’s team-building river rafting adventure.

The experience of being completely immersed in the beauty of the Colorado outdoors is an immediate motivator to rally a group of people who work together.
