Celebrating 20 Years With A Wave of New Adventures

By Mild to Wild   •   January 7, 2014

Thrilled to be commencing our 20th year in business, we’re launching the New Year with a splash.


We couldn’t be happier to be celebrating 20 years of Mild to Wild. And to welcome another season, we have invested in some excellent new events and trips this year. Join us as we get ready for an unforgettable year.



Guided Mesa Verde Discovery Tours are the first of many new and exciting adventures offered at Mild to Wild in 2014. These small, interpretive guided tours bring Pueblo culture and history to life at the 5,000 known archeological sites and 600 ancient cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park – a World Heritage Site and some of the most notable archeological sites in the United States.



As our most extreme river adventure, the new Ultra Upper Animas trip combines two days of intense Class IV and V whitewater rafting into one marathon whitewater adventure on the Upper Animas River in Southwestern Colorado. In order to participate, guests must be very physically fit and pass an on-river orientation the night before the trip. This specialty trip is scheduled for May 24 and June 7, but can be built on any date, while the Animas River is high, for any group of eight or more.


For even more time on the river, experience the best interview ever while discovering what it’s like to be a part of the Mild to Wild team on one of our first-ever Adventure Interview Trips! Open to anyone interested in working at Mild to Wild, learn about opportunities in the office, on the river or on the trail, while rafting and camping on some of the Southwest’s most beautiful rivers. There will be three trips available this spring; two on the spectacular Salt River in Arizona (March 11-14 and March 25-28) and one on the scenic Dolores River in Southwest Colorado (May 4-7).


Another new event, and sure to be an annual favorite, Whitewater Rafts & Brewery Crafts event is kicking off in Durango in May. Join Mild to Wild for a fun day of rafting, then venture to three of Durango’s thirst-quenching craft breweries for a tour and taste of the trade. This event schedule includes the Upper Piedra, May 24, June 7; Lower Piedra, May 25, June 13; Upper Animas, June 21, July 12; Lower Animas, May 31, July 10. Can’t make any of these dates? We’ll keep the fun flowing for any group of six or more.
