Rafting trips near: Buena Vista

Buena Vista at 8,000 feet in elevation is the classic Colorado mountain town. Meaning "Beautiful View" in Spanish, the town is surrounded by the magnificent Collegiate Peaks with more 14ers (peaks over 14,000 feet), than any other mountain range in Colorado. Like so many favorite tourist towns, Buena Vista has a long mining history. Several ghost towns reflecting this past history are worth exploring and are within a short drive or hike. The nearby mountains are also the source for several hot springs at Mt. Princeton and in the Cottonwood Canyon area. Self-proclaimed as the "Whitewater Capital of Colorado", Buena Vista has the Arkansas River running through town on its way through Brown's Canyon. This is the most popular river for whitewater rafting in America.
