The Ultra Upper Animas
Want to paddle through waves of whitewater until your arms fall off? Want all of the Class IV and V rapids that the Upper Animas River has to offer? Are you fit…as in, “Is there also a triathlon in town that I can participate in right now??” fit?
If you answered yes to the questions above, congratulations, the Ultra Upper Animas could be your adventure of a lifetime! Combining the Silverton and Needleton Upper Animas trips into One Day makes for a marathon of a high-adventure rafting trip.
The Upper Animas is our our most wild river. In order to participate, you must be physically fit and pass an on-river orientation the night before your trip. All trip times are approximate and depend on water levels. This combo is not available at all water levels.Book This Trip
