Tubing, Kayaking, Rafting, and River boarding on the Eagle River in Avon, Colorado
Easy. A bike path parallels the river most of the way through town. Our shop is a 3 minute walk from the river.
During May and June the water is typically pretty cold. The water usually starts warming up when the snowmelt is winding down.
Over 13 and good swimmers are okay. Younger kids are okay at lower water levels. Good swimming ability and lifejackets and helmets are a must.
The Avon whitewater park is only a 5 minute walk from our shop. We have twine and straps that will help you strap the tubes to your vehicle. You could also transport them deflated, and inflate them when you get to the river.
Due to covid 19 we will not be running a shuttle during the 2020 season.
