Experience white water rafting through the Rocky Mountains and you will surely come back for more! You will raft through a beautiful canyon, past a gold mine, and view the occasional wildlife. Rafting trips at all levels are available from beginner family trips to advanced trips for experienced rafters. We will handle all the logistics and gear. All you need to do is enjoy the ride!
We offer rafting adventures at 2 different locations. Raft through the stunning Royal Gorge Canyon or stay closer to Denver and raft one of the fastest rivers in the country. Ask us about adding a gold mine tour to your rafting trip. Both are located in the same place!
Rafting the Animas River in Durango, CO is consistently rated the highlight of vacationing visitors. Of all the things to do in Durango, the Class I, II & III rapids are enough action for experienced rafters yet won’t overwhelm novices or young children. For those looking for more action when the river levels are lower, check out our Inflatable Kayak option. We also have outstanding full day high adventure raft trips. Enjoy the mountain and town scenery as our guides focus on your safety and fun! Half way through we will stop and have an awesome snack of fresh fruit, chips & salsa and pure Weminuche Wilderness Water!
4 hours door-to-door, ~3 hours on the river
Unplug from your busy life and enjoy some relaxation while we start out our trip with a gentle float teaching you to paddle. Next experience the exciting adventure of busting through the rapids of Train Bridge, Baby Smelter, Smelter, Corner Pocket, Clock Tower, and Ponderosa! After catching your breath, we will paddle through Santa Rita Rapids and then stop at Serious Texas BBQ for lunch (limited menu). For lunch, you can refresh and enjoy a sandwich and drink. After lunch, we continue down the river and enjoy more rafting and perhaps a refreshing dip in the river. This trip is fun for all ages and provides excitement for all.
2.5-3 hours rafting. Total trip duration four hour trip including lunch.
Treat yourself to a 3/4-Day rafting trip on Durango’s Animas River, a popular river where you can often find several locals and visitors! Enjoy the fun of Class III “wet & fun” rapids, several Class II “splashes,” and some relaxing floating as you learn about the area. Later in the season as water levels begin to decrease, all rapids can be downgraded a half to a full Class. The 3/4-Day trip would offer most of the excitement during the first half of the day, then, after a yummy riverside lunch, you would experience a mild float trip further out of town.
Four to five hours of rafting. Total duration 6 to 6.5 hours. Estimated return time of 3pm.
