Overview
Not all rafting trips have to take up your entire day—this tour from Durango gets you on the water and back out with time to enjoy another adventure before the sun goes down. You'll spend one hour on the Animas River navigating the Class II and Class III rapids with a rafting guide.
What to Expect
Departing from downtown Durango at 724 Main Ave, your guides will take you north of town and begin your journey down the lower Animas river. Experienced guides will teach you all about this incredible area, while expertly leading you through sections of river with rapids ranging from class II-III+. With a minimum age of 4 years old, this really is a great trip for the whole family!

With two boat options to choose from, your guides will make sure you have the best adventure possible. After the trip is finished, you will be returned to your original departure point in downtown Durango, with the opportunity to purchase photos from your day.

Great customer service

Jake did a great job as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about Durango and the Animas River. Ask him about his quinoa burrito recipe.
