Just because life is sometimes scary doesn’t mean you shouldn’t embrace the challenge. Build your fear-conquering skills with aerial and river rafting adventures at Glenwood Canyon Resort.
We’re all familiar with what fear does to us physically and emotionally. We can’t think clearly, and we often feel anxiety and go weak in the knees. Fear is something to be avoided, right? Wrong. Facing your fears is empowering and it tells your psyche that yes, you’ve got this. Build your fear-trouncing muscles by getting out of your comfort zone at Glenwood Canyon Resort near Glenwood Springs and face your fear of adventure.
Make Facing Fears Fun
In addition to riverside camping in Glenwood Canyon, the Colorado RV, cabin and glamping resort also offers adrenaline-filled activities that go a long way toward helping you face your fear of adventure. Overcoming your fears is like lifting weights—it makes you stronger and more resilient. The zipline course, high ropes adventure course, rock-climbing wall, and whitewater rafting at Glenwood Canyon Resort will help you put fears in their proper place—under your control.
Trust Your Team
For the activity team at the Glenwood Canyon Resort Adventure Center, providing a safe and fun-filled adventure experience is their number one priority. Whether you are zipping back and forth across the Colorado River, balancing on a tight rope 40 feet in the air on the High Adventure Ropes Course or barreling through rapids whitewater rafting in Glenwood Canyon, the resort’s experienced adventure outfitters will equip you with all the necessary safety gear and provide both instruction and encouragement.
Build Nerves of Steel: Ziplining, High Ropes & Climbing Wall
What scares us is stepping out into the unknown—it’s also what’s most thrilling. If you’ve never ziplined before, you might have to build up your courage to leap from the Glenwood Canyon Zipline Adventure platform high above the Colorado River. When you do, you’ll briefly feel yourself (and your stomach) drop, then the zipline catching you and supporting your weight. Before you know it, you’ll be flying like an eagle across to where a guide awaits to ensure a firm-footed landing on the opposite platform. The High Adventure Ropes Course, with its many suspended elements, is another way to flex your mental and physical muscles. When you’re finished, you’ll feel alive, present in the moment and most importantly, like you can conquer the world!
Learn to Go with the Flow: Whitewater Rafting
If you’re the type who’s afraid to give up control or reluctant to deal with whatever life might happen to throw at you, get some practice by signing up for a rafting trip with Defiance Rafting at Glenwood Canyon Resort. The river has some life lessons to teach—pay attention, be a team player, and ride the wave to calmer waters! Expert guides will steer you through roiling whitewater in narrow chutes on the Colorado River. Even though your raft guide is a pro at reading the river, you’ll still need to do your part by paddling through rapids with names like Tombstone and Man Eater. After making it through all the holes and waves the river pitches your way, you can be confident to know that you’re better equipped to deal with even bigger challenges.
