    Pass By: Defiance Rafting, 1308 County Road 129, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601-9736

    Your experience starts by meeting at the Defiance boathouse in No Name, CO in beautiful Glenwood Canyon (which is just 2 miles east of the community of Glenwood Springs). There, we will gear you up, talk about the trip, and introduce you to your river pro. Then we'll shuttle up the canyon to Shoshone where we will put-in on the Colorado River. You'll find action right away as we navigate down the Class III-IV Shoshone rapids. We'll follow that up with 45-minutes of scenic canyon float with occasional splashes and opportunities to jump in the water through lower Glenwood Canyon before arriving back at Defiance HQ.
