Owner description: Elk Mountain Expeditions (EME) opened its doors in 2012 with the intent to bring a more personalized experience to the rafting industry. After 10 years working with many large rafting companies around the country we decided to start a company that is free of all the problems that accompany big business rafting. Smaller trips with highly trained guides, no hidden fees, and attention to detail set us apart from other companies in the Roaring Fork Valley. At EME, we are dedicated to providing excellent customer experiences on and off the water. Come out and see the difference a passionate and dedicated team of employees can make on your next river adventure. We are excited to share Aspen's beautiful rivers with you and your family.

Need we say more? Slaughterhouse Falls with high water, an awesome crew and the best guides in the biz. Do it, and do it often.

“Slaughter House raft trip”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Went down the Roaring Fork river with a large group and had a blast. Signed up for a class 3 trip but when the guides saw our enthusiasm and they bumped us up to a class 4 trip. Several people in our group were a little nervous but after a little training everybody felt comfortable. The guides did a great job with special consideration for my 12 year old nephew and everybody had a memorable trip. As a locally owned company they shared a lot of information about the local area and history. The equipment was all in great condition and kept everybody comfortable in the near freezing water. Awesome Trip.

“Roaring Fork Rafting Trip”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

They guys at Elk Mountain Expedition are awesome, fun spirited, professional, and experienced. I went with two friends over memorial day weekend and we had a blast, two of us had very little rafting experience but these guys supplied all the gear and made us feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend them. They partner up with Victorias and Aspen brewing company to provide beer and snacks after the raft trip, both tasty and refreshing.

“Two great trips in one awesome week!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I had the pleasure of going on two amazing trips with Elk Mountain Expeditions this week. The first was an exciting trip down Slaughter House with our hilarious and highly experienced guide and safety boater. I have run this rapid many times, but my experience with EME was definitely the best thus far. A few days later I went down the lower Roaring Fork with some out-of-town friends who had never paddled before, and had a great time. With spring here, the water was high with awesome wave trains, perfect for those looking for a fun introduction to rivers or just a mellower float than Slaughter House. This small but highly trained group of guides, was extremely accommodating to our group and brought a delicious snack and drinks too!! Two thumbs up thanks guys!
