Your journey through time…

…doesn’t need to take too much of your time. The benefit of a one-way ticket is the myriad of options that it opens up for you. You’ll spend less time traveling and have more time to do what you want – whether that means having a leisurely morning or maximizing your day by taming the Animas River or exploring the terrain on a Jeep trail with Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours. Later, relax and enjoy the scenery as we take you on a narrative driving tour to the historic town of Silverton via the scenic San Juan byway. Travel time to Silverton is much shorter on board our worry-free shuttles, plus you arrive in Silverton with plenty of time to explore the town’s quaint shops and museums.

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.
