Our tubing trips keep our customers coming back year after year!

On our Niobrara tubing trips you’ll drift down the slow-flowing river on a giant inflatable tube. You will be hooked up to your friends and family, allowing you to enjoy this wonderful experience together! Take your time to enjoy the Niobrara River and its beautiful surroundings, including an opportunity to visit to Nebraska’s tallest waterfall, the magnificent Smith Falls!

KAYAK AND CANOE TRIPS ON THE NIOBRARA RIVER

Come and enjoy paddling through the scenic wilderness of Nebraska’s Niobrara River. Here at Little Outlaw, we have both single and tandem kayaks as well as double seater canoes available for you! The Niobrara river is slow-flowing and calm, with typical current speeds of three to seven miles per hour, making it perfect for kayakers and canoers of all experience levels to enjoy. We pride ourselves on our top of the line equipment and guarantee that you’ll have a quality kayak or canoe for your trip! All kayak and canoe trips offer a free shuttle service to the start point which means that after you have made your way down the river you will finish at the same location where you left your vehicle.

MARGIE, RAPID CITY

I drove four hours to kayak on the Niobrara. The night before we were to get on the river, a terrible storm hit Valentine dumping inches of rain. By early afternoon, things were looking much better, so we met him at the river, had a wonderful afternoon kayaking, and returned safe and sound. I highly recommend Little Outlaw for their concern about safety as well as courteous service.

Designated as a "Wild and Scenic River" the stretch near Valentine has beautiful scenery, spectacular waterfalls and great water to canoe, tube, tank or kayak. These guys are great and will provide you with great service.

TAMMI, OMAHA, NE

We so appreciate all you do for our group, large or small, over all these years. You are really the best outfitter in Valentine! This has become an annual trip for me and my friends and family. And you and your crew are always so friendly, happy, but most of all FUN! We look forward to this trip and to seeing you every year! Thanks for all that you guys do!

AS SEEN IN

In summer, groups of young partiers dominate the river, hitching tractor-tire-size inflated inner tubes together and guzzling beer as they drift downstream. Some paddle in canoes or kayaks; others float in giant plastic tanks used to water livestock. But come fall, when the college set heads back to campus, empty nesters and leaf peepers take to the river in canoes and kayaks, paddling in search of solitude in one of the country’s most diverse environments.

These canyons, as well as lively springs and waterfalls and an eclectic mix of biological oddities, make the Niobrara an unparalleled wilderness paddling adventure through America’s heartland.
