  • Awesome family rafting trip. Ryan and his team are great! My teenage sons said it was by far the highlight of our Colorado vacation. My wife and I had a blast as well. I highly recommend checking with them first if you are looking for an exciting white water rafting trip.
  • The trip was easy to plan. Molly and Ryan were helpful with the different ages of our grandchildren. They cannot stop talking about the fun had in the river. We have enjoyed Up the Creek Rafting for many years and will continue to book with them.
  • We went on the family friendly express trip down the lower Roaring Fork River into the Colorado River. Molly was an excellent guide and really fun to ride with! We have a four year old and there were a few other kids on the boat too, one as young as two! We felt totally safe with Molly and we still had some good adrenaline rush with the rapids as well as getting totally soaked in the bow of the raft! She even let me jump in, twice! Thanks Molly and Up The Creek Rafting!
  • ... we are in our late 70's and have no interest in being thrown into the river. Up tha Creek customizes all their rafting trips. Ryan said they have taken people on overnights, into several different rivers. He took us west on the Colorado for 2 hours, where we saw scenery, two bald eagles, and got splashed just a little. Great trip and appropriate for us. Check with this company before you schedule your raft trip. Whatever you want, Ryan will make it work. You won't be sorry. Betty Halladay, Golden
  • We needed a family trip for 3, Up the Creek provided a perfect family day of rafting, allowing our little to girl to experience the thrill of the river while providing a very safe environment. The rapids were fun, the float was fun, we were able to cool off. We were not product blasted with pictures, waterproof cameras, glass straps and other stuff we did not need. This is the best trip for the family they cater to what you want to do and verify you are up to the task. Thank you Up the Creek, WE WILL BE BACK !

Where to stay in Glenwood Springs

Most of the places to stay in Glenwood Springs sit within walking distance of the Colorado River. The hot springs pool lies on the north bank of the river, as do many of the town's hotels. Most of the town, however, is on the south bank of the river, so choose a place here for better access to local services and entertainment. Accommodations in town range from bed and breakfasts to historical hotels to resorts. You'll also find numerous national chain hotels and vacation rentals in condominiums and private homes. If you're looking to ski at Aspen and stay in Glenwood Springs as a less-expensive lodging alternative, inquire at local hotels about accommodation-and-lift-ticket packages.
