A delicious snack break and gourmet four-course meal are included and the only way to get to this secluded oasis is by taking the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Soaring includes the roundtrip ticket to Tall Timber Lodge on their private first class cars. So not only do you get a whole day of fun and excitement, but you will also get to see some of the most spectacular sections of the Animas River Canyon via the historic railroad!

  • No dangly earrings.
  • Bring a rain jacket with a hood (Soaring runs rain or shine) and layers as it is usually 5-10 degrees cooler at the higher altitude.
