Not all rafting trips have to take up your entire day—this tour from Durango gets you on the water and back out with time to enjoy another adventure before the sun goes down. You'll spend one hour on the Animas River navigating the Class II and Class III rapids with a rafting guide.

A popular choice among guests who take a train ride or Mesa Verde tour earlier in the day, this adventure takes you into La Plata Canyon to enjoy majestic views of the San Juan mountain range at dusk. Ride in an open-air Jeep past rivers, waterfalls, and even a historic ghost town. It can get chilly at 10,000 feet above sea level, so dress in layers for comfort.
