The Cache La Poudre River offers the closest and best whitewater rafting to Fort Collins and Estes Park. The Poudre is the only National “Wild and Scenic” river in the state of Colorado. Because of this there are strict limits on the amount of guests that we can take rafting every day. We highly recommend advanced reservations for your rafting adventure near Fort Collins.

Because the Poudre River has strict limits it is a lot less crowded than other rivers in Colorado. The scenery in the Poudre Canyon is amazing and wildlife is often seen on our trips. Book a trip with one of our Fort Collins based rafting guides at A Wanderlust Adventure and it will be the highlight of your Colorado vacation!
