Buena Vista—or BV, as the locals say—sits right in the Collegiate Peaks, Colorado’s highest concentration of 14ers.

  • Float down the fast-moving water in the Lower Browns Canyon
  • Choose to paddle or sit back and let your guide take over
  • Fun for the whole family, including kids age 4 and up
  • With a maximum of 10 travelers, you'll get more personalized time on the water
