Description

Experience whitewater fun for the whole family during a guided rafting experience on the Lower Animas River. Join a professional guide and venture down a splashy stretch of river, where coursing rapids are intermixed with scenic sections for a fun and rewarding float.

Meet your guide near downtown Durango and get outfitted with a helmet, paddle, and life jacket. Prior to heading to Whitewater Park at Smelter Rapids, participate in an orientation to get your bearings. During an entertaining introduction to the sport, learn how to paddle in unison with your crew members and hear about the technical sections of whitewater you're likely to see.

Before you know it, it's time to head to the Lower Animas. A swift journey from the heart of Durango lands you at the put-in site. With the sound of the charging river as your soundtrack, board the raft and set your sights on the first series of rapids. Next, it's all hands on deck as you white-knuckle your way through a stretch of Class I and II rapids that cause you to hoot and holler with excitement.

Exchange high-fives with the group after the first series of successful rapids. Then, take time to marvel at the bountiful wildlife lining the banks of the river while your guide helps you chart a masterful course downstream. By the time you make it to the take-out site, find yourself grinning a wide, ear-to-ear grin.

We had a lot of fun. The staff was great, the rafting was great, and the price was affordable with Expedia’s coupon. Don’t sit in the front of the boat if you don’t want to get wet, we did though and loved it. Eautiful scenery along the way.
