Well planned and guided experience on upper Rio Grande above Southfork, CO. We enjoyed the guides, easy experience for our first trip, and beautiful scenery. Our group saw black bears.

Just finished our first rafting experience with Mountain Man Rafting! Everyone had a great time / from 4 yrs old to 67 yrs old! The guides are fun, experienced and knowledgeable - the scenery was beautiful!

Been rafting with MM since the 80's. Guides were knowledgeable and entertaining, as allways. Just fast enough water to keep the kids busy, but not too rough. Good time, we WILL be back.
