One Day Narrows Rafting Trip
About This Trip
For those 13 and up, we offer another intermediate option on the Upper Animas River that is only accessible at lower water levels. The Narrows Section offers an advanced intermediate Raft & Rail option with a ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad before and after the rafting trip and 6 miles of whitewater adventure!
The Highlights of low flow rafting on the Upper Animas are the continuous Class II splashes and intermittent Class III+ “wet and fun” rapids with warmer water and air temperatures. The river will be technical with a lot of spinning and bumping off rocks without the intimidation of high water.
Fourteen thousand-foot peaks rise from the banks as the river drops at an incredible rate of 85 feet per mile! The Upper Animas River is for those that are physically fit and looking for an adventure and does require an on river orientation the morning before your trip. Upper Animas River rafting Narrows section trips starting at $295.00
13 foot self-bailing rafts rigged as a paddle boat or an oar boat with paddle assist. Be ready to paddle and swim on your pre-trip orientation!
