MAD Adventures

At MAD Adventures, we’re MAD about giving our customers the best whitewater rafting trips in Colorado. MAD Adventures has something to for just about everyone, from the wickedly awesome class II and IV rapids on the Clear Creek near Idaho Springs, just west of Denver, to the family - friendly Upper Colorado River outside of Kremmling.

Upper Colorado White Water Rafting

Located near the headwaters of the Colorado River and the western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Upper Colorado rafting trips are perfect for those who want beautiful Canyon scenery and easy-to-navigate whitewater. You’ll see spectacular wildflowers, sheer granite canyon walls, and forest of blue spruce and Douglas fir trees. First-time boaters and families with children give trips on this river rave reviews.

All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Clear Creek, which drops from the mountains just west of Denver, provides a fun and challenging whitewater rafting experience. The river traverses past ponderosa pine, juniper, and Douglas fir tree forests before tumbling through the old mining town of Idaho Springs.

This Clear Creek Colorado whitewater rafting trip will take you past wildlife such as river otters, bighorn sheep, and the occasional bear. Our Clear Creek rafting office is just 30 minutes from Denver, 45 minutes from Winter Park, and 1-1/4 hours from Boulder with easy access from all of Grand County, Summit County and Vail. View a sneak peek of Clear Creek!


Grab a paddle and jump aboard! This beginner trip offers plenty of enjoyment. The Class II/III rapids are frequent and playful so plan on getting wet as you negotiate your way down the river. This trip accommodates children as young as 7 years of age which makes it a fun family experience. Because the water is usually cold, wetsuits are included with your trip. The minimum age for rafters on this whitewater adventure is 7 years.
