Echo Canyon River Expeditions

Watermelons, popsicles and memory puzzles are just the start to a fun, challenging and crazy day on the river as you navigate one of the most popular sections of river in the United States. Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Arkansas River in Colorado serve as the playing field for Echo Canyon’s signature experience - Battle of the Bighorn!

This timed challenge is best described as an obstacle course that meets the river. You will battle alongside your teammates to be the first raft through Bighorn Sheep Canyon (Class II-III) while completing a series of challenges along the way. However, the first team to reach the finish line may not be the winner as time penalties and credits will determine first place! Each team is staffed by an Echo Canyon river guide, so no experience is needed to enter the fray.

Groups have the option to add on additional components to this event including a prize package, a post-race party back at our 8 Mile Bar & Grill, as well as photo / video packages.

Who should consider this trip? Battle of the Bighorn has been designed specifically for groups. This is the perfect afternoon activity for corporate team building groups, wedding parties, family reunions, sports teams, and other groups and clubs.
