Rivers, Trails, & Rails
Raft - Jeep - Train
1st Day Train and Jeep Tour
Experience the best of Colorado in 1 & 1/2 days!
The day prior to or after you’ve enjoyed our popular Jeep/Train package, which includes a Ghost Town jeep tour and a one-way trip on the Durango Narrow Gauge, explore Durango’s sampler 1/2 day raft trip on Durango’s Animas River! This package is great for ages 4-84, with Class I “moving water,” a few Class II “splashes” and one or more “wet and fun” Class III rapids (depending on water level). You will be treated to a different view of Durango while learning the fascinating history of the area. Guests 12 and up have the option to upgrade to inflatable kayaks on the Lower Animas River (when water levels allow). Don’t miss the highlight of your vacation in Durango and Silverton!
*Option to raft in the afternoon or upgrade to a full day or inflatable kayaks

Credit card details are heavily encrypted. All information is transmitted via a secure connection.
In addition to the listed trip cost, we collect an additional 7% for River and Land Access Fees (ie. Forest Service, BLM, City, Private Land Use).
- Kids 4 and under can ride on your lap on the train portion if you want to save the money on their train ticket, but kids must be at least 4 to go on the rafting portion of the package.
- You must bring your own car seats for children who require them on the jeep trail tour, Mild to Wild does not provide any. The Colorado Car Seat Law states that children up to 8 years must be in an appropriate car seat/booster seat.
- Dark clothes are best on the train because of the soot, also sunglasses help to protect your eyes.
- We recommend the open air gondola on summer train trips.
