Reasons NOT to Rent a Side-by-Side ATV

If you’re looking to make unforgettable summer plans, you’ll want to come to Colorado. There are breathtaking views and a million and one adventures to choose from, whether you want to try whitewater rafting for the first time or zipline through the trees. Can’t decide? Come to Durango. We have something for everyone and Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours is here to help you find the right activity for you. With all the great options of things to do in Durango, Colorado, it can be hard to choose, with jeep rentals, guided tours of Mesa Verde National Park, multi-day kayak trips, and more. We wanted to help you narrow down your choices, so in today’s blog post, we’ll cover a few reasons why you should NOT rent a side-by-side ATV from Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours.

You Don’t Like Trying New, Exciting Things

If you want to slowly drive the same paved roads as everyone else, then our ATV rentals are not for you. Our side-by-side ATVs can go places even our jeep rentals can’t, giving you a refreshing, open-air perspective that you can’t experience any other way. If you’re not ready to get off the beaten track and forge your own way, you’ll want to try a different trip package from Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours.

You Want to Follow Someone Else’s Plans

When you rent one of our side-by-side ATVs, you create your own adventure. Every tour is self-guided and you have the freedom to plan your own trip at your speed. We simply give you the materials you need, including helmets, fuel, safety information, and a map. We’ll even include a cooler and drybag! If you’re the kind of person who wants to sit back and let someone take the reins, you might prefer sitting in the passenger seat.

You Don’t Want a Great View and Great Benefits

In our side-by-side ATVs, you can explore the ghost towns above Silverton or climb to 12,000 feet for a gorgeous view of the mountains. You’ll also get a workout — driving these all-terrain vehicles requires more physical effort than you might expect, and as we mentioned in a past blog post, you can gain some serious health benefits. If your ideal vacation doesn’t include soaking in the sunshine and a thrilling experience that will leave you grinning, then our ATV rental packages are not the right choice for you.

You’re Not Ready for a Bonding Experience Unlike Any Other

If you are more of a solo adventurer, you can try our RZR rentals on your own, but they also offer a unique chance to bring your friends and family along for the ride. Our side-by-side ATV rentals come in two- or four-seat models so you can experience off-roading with the people closest to you. Adrenaline and excitement have a way of bringing everyone together. If you’re not ready for a lasting bonding experience, check out Durango Rivertrippers other options.

There are plenty of things to do in Durango, Colorado, and side-by-side ATV rentals are just one of the thrilling options offered by Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours.
