Experience all types of mild, intermediate and wild adventures on guided group rafting trips, jeep tours, Mesa Verde tours, inflatable kayaks, train rides, and paddle boards! Groups can choose from mild to wild for adventures, but also for unique meetings, team building challenges, group bonding, motivational trips and mostly, for FUN. And, be aware: after your first experience with Mild to Wild, you will probably want to make it a yearly event with us!

Mild to Wild’s diverse array of trip options allow us to create the experience that is ideal for your specific need:

Jeep Tours: Educational, interactive and tailored to your schedule and objectives. This is a great way to explore places you would not want to take your own vehicle!

Possible Group Trips:

Youth Groups: Get outdoors and experience!
There is no better way to gain group cohesion than sharing the fun and excitement of an outdoor adventure in a raft, inflatable kayak, paddle board or educational/interactive jeep trail tour.

Boy Scouts: The most fun merit badge ever!
Mild to Wild prides itself on helping scouts achieve The Whitewater Merit Badge. We take our responsibility very seriously to provide the experience and education to meet the badge requirements, as well as provide a fun experience while limiting risk!

Corporate Groups: For more productivity!
Depending on your goal and adventure level, our many options can accommodate your corporate goals – incentive trip, team building trip, employee rewards and appreciation outings.

School Groups: Because Mark Twain said “Never let schooling interfere with education”!
School groups love our trips! What better way to learn and have fun than on an educational trip in the outdoors! Available on rafts, inflatable kayaks, jeep trail tours, paddle boards and the jeep/train tour (Durango Silverton Train).

Bachelor Parties: Oh…do we have the 2 Day Raft & Camp trip for you!
Our most popular bachelor party trip is on the Upper Animas River. Two unbelievable days of 100+ rapids (Class III, IV and V) and an evening in our exclusive remote camp. Even the bride will approve of this!

Wedding Parties: Because the big night passes so fast!
What better way to prepare for the big day than to bring all your family and friends together on a sampler Lower Animas River Trip. Paddle, splash, relax and get to know each other better! (Available on all rivers).

Girl Scout: You want badges, and we want to help!
We can help obtain Junior Badge requirements for “Water Fun” and “Wildlife” and Cadet and Senior badge requirements for “High Adventure Interest Project,” “Water Sports” and the “Paddle, Pole and Roll” badges.

Family Reunion: Family’s that play together, stay together!
Mild to Wild’s diverse trip offerings provide a wide array of options. Those looking to stay together generally opt for a mild trip – to accommodate everyone. Some reunions opt to split up in groups – some doing the mild, some the intermediate and some the wild, and then all joining together on a Jeep Trail Tour, or better yet, the Jeep/Train.

Tour Operators: Experience – We have it and want to share it with your group!
Mild to Wild understands how important it is to keep your tour clients happy. We offer customized itineraries and times to accommodate your needs.
