What Our Guests Are Saying

“Fantastic, fun, faith-built company!”
Brian S
Des Moines, Iowa
“We did the full day trip through the Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Royal Gorge on our honeymoon, and absolutely loved it...Nicki, our guide was absolutely amazing... personable, friendly, knowledgeable and in control, and did a great job of making the trip safe and fun for everybody. It was refreshing to be with other believers. You could see the love of Christ in the staff members faces, and they were unashamed of Christ, but definitely not pushy with their faith...We had the ride of our lives, and if we're ever back in that area again, we'll definitely be re-booking with Journey Quest! ” Read Full Review

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our rafting trip with our guides, Mark and Ryan. What makes it even better is the fact that they are Christians! We spent the whole day breaking spiritual bread with some awesome men of God...and we got to navigate the waters of Royal Gorge in the process! ” Read Full Review
“Get ready to get wet and be amazed!”
Greeley, Colorado
“Our terrific guide showed us the glories of the amazing Royal Gorge, complete with anecdotes and a demand to row (forward 2!). I must admit that I may have missed some of the amazing Gorge because my eyes were shut as I paddled through waves breaking over my head, but I never felt amiss with Denise behind me. If you only see one part of Colorado's amazing beauty, be sure you see it with one of the Journey Quest guides. And don't be afraid to GET WET!!!” Read Full Review
“Full Day Adventure – Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip”
Cedarburg, Wisconsin
“We went on the Full Day Adventure Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip. It was a wonderful trip and I would highly recommend it for those who love whitewater rafting. We went in August so the river was down some, but we still had great rapids and a very enjoyable trip. Our guide did an excellent job. If we lived closer we would go several times a year. The kids thought the whitewater rafting trip was the best activity we did while in Colorado.” Read Full Review
“Pleasant surprise”
Bob K
Sanger, Texas
“We floated the Gorge with Journey Quest before we attended a John Eldridge bootcamp...Everyone knew immediately God put us with them as the float adventure tied in with the spiritual bootcamp perfectly. Everyone felt like John was talking to our group at the bootcamp. We had a great time with both adventures and look forward to doing it again next year.” Read Full Review

Rafting with a Purpose

Like all our trips, the purpose is much more than just white water rafting. Our guides seek opportunities to use even a couple hours together on the river to share about the love and grace that is found in Jesus Christ. On this full-day trip, we seek to share the transformational power of the living Gospel with all of our guests using spiritual analogies, personal testimonies, and thought provoking questions. This trip is perfect for those looking to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ while experiencing the beauty and thrill of God’s Creation. Our guides look to be an example of what a disciple of Christ looks like by proclaiming the truth of the Bible, showing love towards one another, and praying with you during your trip.

The Journey Begins

Your adventure-packed whitewater rafting trip begins as you gear-up, learn to paddle, and hit the Arkansas River. Starting at Parkdale, the launch site for the Royal Gorge, enjoy a few miles of calm water as the canyon walls narrow and rock walls begin to tower 1,000 feet above you. Don’t forget to take in the spectacular scenery of the canyon as you approach the thrilling rapids where the true rafting begins.

Discover Your Wild Side

After the short calm section, discover your wild side as you encounter the world-class continuous whitewater rafting of the Royal Gorge. Come face-to-face with incredible Class IV-V rapids such as Sunshine Falls, Sledgehammer, Wallslammer, and the Narrows as you paddle hard and get soaked along the way. Before the morning is over, take a few plunges off of a 15-foot jump rock into the river.

Double Dip

After the morning run, head back to Parkdale where you will enjoy a delicious riverside lunch with your crew and guide. After a relaxing and filling lunch, hop back in your raft and enjoy the breathtaking and exciting nature of the Royal Gorge for a second time. Hit the same familiar rapids you smashed in the morning and satisfy that thirst for true Colorado adventure.
