Come with us to explore one of the last free flowing rivers in the United States. The Animas River begins in the small historic town of Silverton flowing South through Durango and through the Southern Ute Native American Reservation. A trip down the Animas River is sure to be on the list of highlights for your Durango experience.

We offer half day rafting trips throughout most of the summer season, depending on flows of the river. We can also customize a trip especially for your group!
