Because Life is an Adventure

In Glenwood Springs, Colorado the definition of adventure is: a heart pounding, adrenaline-pumping, amped-up kick in the pants! All fun; no fear. For a rush like you’ve never experienced before, try these Glenwood Springs adventures.

Paragliding. A tandem jump off Red Mountain will set you flying like a golden eagle soaring above the Roaring Fork River. The first step is a doozey. After that it’s the views that will take your breath away.

Adventure rides. Unofficially, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has one of the scariest rides on the planet. The Giant Canyon Swing launches riders over Glenwood Canyon, 1300 feet above the Colorado River, at speeds of up to 50 mph! It lasts minutes, but it’s one ride you will never forget.

Rafting. Navigate the thrashing whitewater at Shoshone in Glenwood Canyon. Riddled with Class III and IV rapids, this section of the Colorado River is so intensely thrilling that rafting companies often run Shoshone more than once on a single trip.

Climbing. With names like the Dead Horse, the Slab and Quartzite Wasteland, climbing fans won’t run out of routes anytime soon, and that’s just in Glenwood Canyon!

Ropes Courses. Test your balance and your courage. Despite being harnessed and completely safe, your brain will rebel. Put it on notice and master your fears.
