Trip Description

An all-day adventure

Enjoy adventure and scenic beauty when you combine 2 of Durango’s most beautiful and thrilling adventures, all at one great discounted price with the RZR and Rail Package.  Enjoy an 8:15 am scenic shuttle through the San Juan Mountains on the world-famous San Juan Skyway from Durango to Silverton, CO to start your day. The shuttle lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Once in Silverton, you will hit the backcountry with an RZR rental that lets you adventure high into the mountains of Silverton on a Side by Side RZR that can seat up to 4 people. This is self-guided, meaning you will not be with a guide. We will give you great directions and make recommendations on where to visit. From ghost towns, waterfalls, and majestic mount tops, we have the trail for you.   These high performance 4 wheel drive vehicles allow you to make it where no regular cars can go and give you the unique opportunity to explore a taste of true Colorado backcountry.

After your day in the mountains, sit back and enjoy a ride on the historic Durango & Silverton Train back to Durango as you explore the sights and sounds of yesteryear! The 1-way train will take about 3.5 hours back into Durango.

This is a very popular option allowing you to explore the beautiful mountain trails of Silverton and then catch the historic Durango & Silverton train back to Durango. This discount package offers adventure, history, and breathtaking scenery.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

Join us on a raft trip down the San Miguel River in Telluride, CO. In the spring and early summer this snowmelt-fed river plunges from the high peaks of the San Juan Mountains. NOTE: This river flows typically during the end of May and stops at the end of June. The dates we have loaded are the dates we are running this river. If you are looking for rafting in July and August check out our Durango River Rafting page.
