From river rafting to rock climbing to hot-air balloon rides, and everything in between, you can always find fun things to do in Colorado Springs. Join the Narrows Rafting Tour. Narrows Express is an exhilarating stretch of the Arkansas River packed with one rapid after another. It makes for nonstop paddling, fun and excitement, along with beautiful views of the peaks.

Check out the Pikes Peak Alpine School. This alpine school redefines the term "higher learning," and, unlike this bad pun, receives strong praise. Well-trained guides can teach you the skills and techniques needed to scale cliffs of ice, ski the back country, and mountain climb. Rock climbing lessons, its most popular offering, usually take place on the rocks at Garden of the Gods and are open to all skill levels. Private lessons are given and all equipment is provided. Also popular are guided technical and non-technical Pikes Peak climbs.
Whatever extreme adventure you seek, you will likely find it at the Adventure Out West activity center.
