Rafting, Zip-line, Train Rides and More

Mountain River Lodge is not far from one of Colorado’s most impressive natural attractions, the Royal Gorge, just 25 minutes outside Canon City. This breathtaking 1,200-foot deep canyon was carved over millions of years by the wild Arkansas River.  Start your visit to the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, where you can stand above the canyon and take in the awe-inspiring views.  There are many ways to view the dramatic canyon.  Walk across the gorge on one of the world’s highest suspension bridges, the scenic Royal Gorge Bridge.  Zing across the gorge on a high-speed zip line or gently whisk across in an enclosed gondola.  Maybe heights aren’t your thing, then take a ride on the Royal Gorge Train, a route that runs along the floor of the canyon, alongside the river.  Float down the Royal Gorge on an Arkansas River white water rafting trip.

Whatever you choose, our staff can help you find the most awesome way to experience the Royal Gorge. We can book your trips with reliable outfitters and arrange transportation.  Please contact us today for pricing.
