Overview

Feel free to leave the worries at home. This trip has just enough splash to remind you that you’re on a river but leaves out the intensity of the Shoshone rapids. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to kick-back and take in all that Glenwood Canyon has to offer. Hop out and do some swimming or even dip your toes in the hot springs that make their way into the Colorado River as you approach Glenwood Springs.

My husband and I took a family vacation with our 8, 6, and 2 year old and wanted to check out the scenic float trip. From the time we got to Defiance Rafting to the time we left we had nothing short of an amazing experience! Everyone that worked their was friendly, funny, and personable. Not only did we get to enjoy our time on the water, but we got a fun history lesson as well. Thank you for creating a great family memory that we will never forget!

The Guides make it fun and informative. This Rafting Company is not only dedicated to making sure your experience is fun, but also they are passionate about the river and environment. I'd book with Defiant Rafting again.

The scenic float was incredible! Neil was a terrific guide, sharing information with us as we floated 12 miles on the river. The scenery was spectacular, and the surprise mini-rapids along the way were lots of fun.

Our guides nickname was “Mudflap” he was the BEST guide ever and hilarious! Made the whole rafting experience fun and adventurous! He just had an awesome vibe and a badass mullet! Lol Overall the views were spectacular! I had my family with me including 2 small children ages 6 and 3. The guide made sure the kids were part of the adventure and not left out. They loved it! 10/10 I would definitely go through defiance again and try out the bigger and crazier rapids but the scenic float was very relaxing, a few rapids but learned a lot thanks to our awesome guide!

Great trip! Our guide was funny, yet very knowledgeable about the area, highly experienced and professional. Every regard for our safety. When we lived in Colorado 45 years ago, we used to see people on the river and said we'd do the same "some day." Our "some day" finally came--so worth it. Next time we may try for the next level up!

Thank you Matt, Ben, and Mike! We had a great day and you all made GG’s birthday special. Trip through the canyon was awesome and even though it was a “scenic float” there was enough splashing and rapids for all three kids to say “That was so fun!” Thanks again!!

Our float was absolutely perfect! Ashlynn was an incredible guide, ensuring we all had a great time and charged into some rapids throughout our ride. All of the staff we encountered was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The afternoon we spent with Defiance was so memorable, and we can’t wait to do another float when we’re back in town! Do yourself a favor and book a float with them - you don’t be disappointed!

Awesome family fun! Perfect amount of sightseeing and excitement for a family with a wide age range. Our guide, Lilly, was friendly and enthusiastic, providing lots of interesting info and keeping our kids engaged and laughing. The trip was well worth the money for a memorable family adventure, and the pics we ended up buying at the end will be some of our favs when we look back on family vacations. Very happy we took this excursion and extremely impressed by Defiance and it’s staff!

Excellent time with Defiance! Our guide Ash was awesome! She was great with our kids and made sure to point out all the sights along the way! Would 10/10 go with them again.
