What you can expect

Enjoy a few hours paddling through the swirling currents and gentle rapids of the Animas River on this delightful rafting tour. With an expert guide to lead the way, manoeuvre through narrow canyons and work on your paddling skills while taking in views of the rugged, pine tree-dotted landscape.

Perfect for beginners looking to try out their first rapids or for experienced pros with packed schedules, this quick excursion is an ideal way to spend a few hours on the water and still have time to explore the quaint sites in and around Durango.

Kick off your day by meeting up with your guide and heading to your starting point on the Animas River. Get fitted with a life jacket and get a basic run-down of the day's route and safety precautions before heading to the riverbank and jumping in your boat. Find a seat beside your fellow rafters and push off to tackle your first rapid.

Bounce and tumble over the turbulent water, and listen to your guide as they tell you when and how to paddle in order to avoid rocky obstacles and swirling eddies. During leisurely stretches of calm water, focus your eyes on the steep hillsides to look for local wildlife, such as cliff-climbing bighorn sheep and high-flying hawks. At the end of your route, hop out and help gather equipment or snap a group photo before you climb aboard comfortable transport and return to Durango.
