Raft like a local




Rock Gardens Rafting, located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, operated out of Glenwood Canyon Resort for over 30 years. The story of Defiance emerges from this rafting legacy.

So, why Defiance Rafting Company? The name Defiance is a nod to the original naming of the townsite that was later changed to Glenwood Springs. Defiance also resonates with our story of defying conventional wisdom. Desiring community, getting back outside, and sharing a love of the river. Without looking back, Defiance Rafting Company was launched.

Defiance Rafting Company is more then pushing rubber boats down a river and making up for lost time, it is also about creating a platform for doing good in our community and having an opportunity to give back. They believe in creating lasting river memories and providing a forum for others to experience the greatness of the Colorado River, the magnificence of Glenwood Canyon, and the charm of Glenwood Springs.
