Who says Colorado is landlocked? Whether you’re stand up paddle boarding down the North Star Nature Preserve or rafting the Roaring Fork River, Aspen has plenty of options for off-land fun. Whitewater rafting is the ultimate adrenaline rush, and Aspen’s waters can reach Class V in an instant. Always go with an experienced guide from a local outfitter to help navigate as safely as possible. Aspen is also home to mellow streams, so if you prefer a quiet canoe or stand up paddle, check out the North Star Nature Preserve and its winding meander through untouched Rocky Mountain splendor.
