With beautiful canyons and more rapids per mile than any other commercially run stretch of white water in Colorado, Clear Creek is the perfect destination for whitewater rafting! Clear Creek has a range of sections varying in difficulty which provides a trip option for all ages and skill levels. Our Empire, Colorado outpost is centrally located between Denver, Breckenridge and Winter Park, offering a convenient destination for high-quality Clear Creek rafting trips.

The “Upper C” has fun and family-friendly float trips that take you away from the beaten path and deep into Colorado’s nature and beauty. From our Kremmling, Colorado location you are a short drive from Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, and Winter Park. Explore our Upper Colorado River rafting trips(opens in a new tab)!
