Our most popular trip rafting Durango’s Animas River

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!

Animas River Update:

The Animas River is currently experiencing high water levels during the Spring runoff. We anticipate these higher water levels to continue until the end of June. Unfortunately when the water is at these levels we cannot offer our Half Day Trip option on the Animas River. If you are looking to reserve a trip for any day between now and June 30th please read about our Family Friendly Class II-III Quarter Day Trip that we run all summer and is appropriate for most groups or our Class IV Whitewater Quarter Day Trip options. Please contact us with any questions!
