EXPERIENCE DETAILS

Highlights

  • Experience all the highs and lows of one of Colorado’s deepest canyons, the Royal Gorge, outside of Cañon City, Colorado
  • Stay in fun riverside yurts or a luxury southwestern-style villa depending on group size
  • An adrenaline-filled weekend with a helicopter tour, zipline, white-water rafting and a mountaineering experience
  • Enjoy a three-course organic and locally-sourced dinner with 360 degree views on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad
With one of the highest bridges in the world over one of Colorado’s deepest canyons, the Royal Gorge, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Arkansas, is home to breathtaking views and adrenaline packed adventures you won’t find anywhere else. Just outside Cañon City, experience the gorge from every angle — above, below and even on the canyon walls.

After arrival in Fremont County, go from your private jet to a helicopter. Shake any fear of heights from the start with a helicopter tour of the region you'll explore over the next three days, with views of Big Horn Sheep Canyon and the Royal Gorge Bridge. From the air it might not look as big, but the Royal Gorge Bridge is the highest suspension bridge in North America, and was the highest in the world until 2003. 

Depending on your group size, check into one of several luxury accommodations in the area. A riverside yurt sleeps four, while the nearby Parkdale Ranch is a four-bedroom southwestern-style villa that can accommodate 10 with no worries about the neighbors next door (hint: it’s only the wildlife). No matter where you stay, you won’t be spending much time there anyway. Toss your bags on your bed and head out for dinner aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, where you’ll be served 360-degree views of stunning natural wonders alongside a three-course organic and locally-sourced dinner.

On day two, you’ll experience all the highs and lows of the Royal Gorge with a zipline tour, as well as a white water rafting trip down the Arkansas River at the foot of the 1,250 foot canyon. If that’s not enough, your final day will take you up the canyon walls with a guided hike on the Via Ferrata, where a trained mountain guide will lead you on a controlled mountaineering experience, providing views of the Royal Gorge that most don’t have the opportunity to see. 

With a weekend full of adrenaline, any amount of turbulence on the plane ride home will seem tame in comparison.

FAQ

I am interested in this trip, but not sure I want all this adrenaline, are there options for me?
Yes! Most of the activities have a milder version if you are interested. For example, rafting is available in Bighorn Sheep Canyon which is a further drive, but calmer waters. Please contact your Manifest Customer Care Representative for any custom modifications.

On day two, can we raft before ziplining?
As long as the group is all in agreement, the order of day two is flexible. If you would like to raft prior to ziplining please contact your Manifest Customer Care Representative and communicate this.

What gear will I need to bring with me?
None! Each excursion operator will be providing the equipment, helmets, life vests, and harnesses appropriate for the various activities. You simply need to be dressed in athletic wear and shoes conducive to the activity. In the example of the Via Ferrata trail they do also provide shoes in the event that yours are not appropriate. Hiking poles are optional as long as they collapse and fit in your pack while you are on the Via Ferrata route.

What level of outdoor expertise will I need for this trip?
A generic level of comfort with the outdoors is suggested for this trip, but no formal training or prior experience is needed for any of the specific activities as we will have professional guides with us at all times. A general level of comfort with heights is also highly recommended for this trip. 

What is a Via Ferrata?
Via Ferrata is Italian for “Iron Way” and is a protected climbing route whose history dates back to WW1 when soldiers needed to traverse mountainous terrain in a more direct and timely manner. Steel cables are fixed to the rock wall and guests then secure themselves to the cable. Together, the cable, climbing kit, and iron rungs allow otherwise dangerous routes to be scaled with relatively low risk, giving inexperienced guests a means to hike and climb the Royal Gorge. This system is still used in the Alps for recreational purposes; however, the Royal Gorge Via Ferrata is a route built and used solely recreationally. The steep cliff walls of the Royal Gorge naturally create a truly one-of-a-kind Via Ferrata. There is no other quite like it.
