For your return trip, hop aboard the infamous Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Step through time on this original 1880s steam-powered locomotive that travels the same tracks blazed by the early settlers. A truly unique experience on board one of the last surviving narrow gauge railroads, this family-friendly rail trip winds through the beautiful Colorado high country along the majestic San Juan Mountains, giving you views inaccessible from the highway. Keep an eye out for wildlife sightings as you journey through designated wilderness areas and past old mining camps and stagecoach roads. Pull back into Durango’s original 1882 depot, right in the heart of our downtown.

Don’t let a full itinerary deter you from experiencing what the Society of American Travel Writers calls “One of the World’s Top Ten Most Exciting Train Rides”. Book a one-way train ticket with Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours and get the best of both worlds.
