Gunnison River Overnight
Join us for a night under the stars on the Gunnison River. This fully catered and outfitted stand up paddle adventure is your opportunity to get the full Gunnison River experience.
Day 1 begins with instruction. Before launching, our professional instructors will teach a short course in basic SUP and river running skills. This course begins on land and covers everything from maneuvering a paddle board, to moving in and out of river currents.
After 3 miles of river running we arrive at camp, where you will enjoy swimming and games while relaxing on the banks of the Gunnison. All your needs including meals and camp set up will be taken care of by our staff. An optional side hike from camp reveals exciting rock formations, an array of native plants and narrow canyon passages.
On day 2, after a locally sourced organic Breakfast we float 5 through miles of scenic canyons, calm water and a few small splashy rapids, making a short stop to explore the petroglyphs and ancient dwelling of Eagle Rock Shelter. The trip concludes at the terminus of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area.
