Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) has become one of the fastest growing sports in the Yampa Valley and beyond. AVA and Mountain Sports Kayak School offer trips and rentals for everyone interested in learning a new, fun way to enjoy Colorado's rivers and lakes.
AVA Arkansas Valley Adventures offers stand-up paddle boarding on the upper Colorado River. Your laid back trip will include plenty of time to swim, sunbathe, or just relax and enjoy the scenery. Visit historic mining cabins and get your heart racing with a leap from 'Jump Rock' into the river. You'll splash through a few moderate rapids as the river winds through the Gore Range and mountain ranchland. Perfect for families or anyone looking for a leisurely day on the river. Don't miss this summer activity in the Colorado Mountains.
