Who says Colorado is landlocked? Whether you’re stand up paddle boarding down the North Star Nature Preserve or braving the rapids of 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 safe 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.
