Custom safari tours are the best of both worlds!
The custom safari tour is the best of both worlds. It’s a private tour with just your group and can be customized to meet everyone’s expectations. The custom safari tour is the best way to explore the Colorado Mountains with your guide and your own custom itinerary. No two tours are the same with our custom options. Your guide will take you deep into the San Juan Mountains to see some waterfalls, wildlife, and some breathtaking views. Our permits allow us to explore the La Plata’s west of Durango or the San Juan Mountains above Silverton, Colorado.
Custom safari tours have more freedom to spend more time in areas or less depending on what you like. We will load up our vehicle and head into the mountains where we will start our journey. Once we reach the end of the Jeep Trails we will take some more pictures in high alpine meadows and basins before heading back.
We have the option to visit old mining structures, ghost towns, waterfalls, and take in the breathtaking beauty of seemingly never-ending mountain horizons. It is your own unique safari tour customized by you and your tour guide. Come in early summer and late spring to see the wildflowers in full bloom covering the high alpine meadows in vibrant colors. Or come visit us in the fall to see the mountains transform from a lush green forest to a golden yellow and rustic red from all of the aspen trees that line the mountains. Once we understand the type of tour you are looking to do we will select the right vehicle for the tour and make recommendations on the locations to visit.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to meet your guide and plan your adventure. Expect an interactive experience to see some of the best views that the San Juan Mountains have to offer.

From the Durango Rivertrippers Team we want to thank our first responders, pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and all of the essential employees who are helping fight the spread of COVID-19.
Our commitment to safety for both our guests and staff is our number one priority. We will be making some changes to keep that commitment during COVID-19. All of our trips can and will be modified as needed, in an effort to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible. We will be limiting the number of guests on each trip to keep our social distance. After each trip in a vehicle or raft we will sanitize high touch points before the next use. We will have disinfectant wipes or hand sanitizer available for all guests.
Changes moving forward
- We will be limiting the number of guests on each raft and vehicle
- Cleaning and disinfecting highly trafficked surfaces multiple times every day
- Providing sanitizer or disinfectant wipes for our guests
- Encouraging private trips to continue social distancing
- We will continue to follow our local Health Department for specific updates
