River Rafting & Tubing, Durango

4.7
#1 of 28 in Outdoors in Durango
Splash down the rapids of the narrow, twisting Animas River on a whitewater rafting or tubing trip from Durango. Sit back and enjoy the scenery, or paddle along with your expert guide as you move past red rock walls and forests of green pines. Spend a couple of hours or an entire day triumphing over the white waters of the upper course, or floating down the more peaceful lower section of the Animas River. You can also combine a rafting trip with a visit to a historic mining town, a ziplining adventure, or a ride on the famous Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Where to stay in Durango

Immerse yourself in Durango's rich history by staying in one of downtown's turn-of-the-century hotels, where the buildings' brick architecture highlights a bygone era. Not only do these pack plenty of character, they offer proximity to the majority of the town's eateries, stores, and attractions. A motel farther out of town is typically cheaper, while a rural bed and breakfast is ideal for a romantic getaway. For an authentic western Colorado experience, consider a dude ranch on the outskirts.
