My husband, son, and nephew took a bike tour with Pagosa Outside and they had a wonderful time. The guide, Chandler, was accommodating to both the beginners and the seasoned riders in the group. The trail was moderate with enough ups and downs for the rider with experience but not too hard for the beginner. They would take this tour... More

We signed up for the two-hour tubing experience with Pagosa Outside, and it was the highlight of our trip. It was about $15/tube, $5/water shoe, $5/life jackets, and definitely worth it. They have a funky chicken school bus shuttle that transports you and your tube upstream about a mile, then you tube down the San Juan into the center of... More

My son (age 11) and I had a BLAST tubing on the San Juan. The water was perfect, "refreshing" temp on a perfect warm sunny August day. Shane, our bus driver for our first trip down the river, was super helpful explaining tips for tubing in gentle white water. Thanks to his brief instructions, we only tipped out when we... More

We went tubing on the San Juan with my two older children (11 and 14), on August 2. The water was around 125 cfs, and was great for the kids (they each fell out of the tube once or twice, but overall felt safe. For a reasonable price, we rented tubes for two hours and they had a free shuttle... More

Such a fun experience to share with my son. The staff was so helpful and I appreciated the bus that took us back up the river. This allowed us to spend more time enjoying the river. Unfortunately I forgot a strap for my eye glasses and almost lost them on the first ride down. My husband had returned to hotel... More

The staff was very friendly and informative. We rented paddle boards for the first time and they explained everything we needed to know. They helped us with where to go and the different lakes in the area. Would highly recommend and will rent from them again. Thank you for being so wonderful:)

Loved the way they ran this trip! Very professional. Great experience! The guide's paddle hit an eddy at the end of the trip, and she told us "keep paddling" and then proceeded to follow all the recommendations for leaving the boat accidentally! She was fine, we were fine, and the trip was still a success!

We had some time in Pagosa Springs and my son wanted to Kayak the river. We rented a Kayak from Pagosa Outside and the people were very helpful. My son ran the river several times. One of the staff came and watched on her break and cheered him on as he ran the rapids.
