WHITEWATER RAFTING TOUR OPTIONS

DURANGO EXPRESS

No trip to Durango is complete without a float down the Lower Animas.  This fun and convenient Lower Animas river rafting trip is perfect for large groups, families, and suitable for children 4 y/o and up. The Lower Animas starts on the North end of Durango near 32nd St and finishes 5-10 miles downstream depending on which trip you choose and the time of year. There are small class II rapids throughout the trip with the biggest rapid being located at Santa Rita Park known as Smelter. At high water Smelter has some big crashing waves and we will sometimes need to walk the small children in your group around this one depending on how high the water is. After Smelter the river returns back into is natural river bed where you’ll enjoy continuous small rapids through towering cottonwoods and lush riparian vegetation. Book our Lower Animas rafting trip to experience one of the best family rafting trips in Colorado.
