We had a tame but lovely river raft tour on the lower Animas, but after riding on the train to the upper Animas, I can't wait to go back during the spring melt and really run the river.

This was our first time doing anything like this and we were a bit nervous. Everything was very organized and we had a great time! #Dillan was our guide and he made it super fun!

Having a full-blooded river tun through your city is an amazing and wonderful thing. No matter if you are a photographer, hiker, kayaker, rafter, or angler, the Animas is just the river for you. There are numerous free access points, tube rentals, raftimg tours, and...More

Apparently there is a custom of swimmers on the shore of the river "mooning" the train as it returns to Durango, and we got the full view on our way back! This is a beautiful river to view as well as to swim in and...More

We enjoyed our time on the river. We highly recommend the rafting trip. It is too bad the city put a waste water plant on it downtown.

While I do not know for sure if there are vacation homes available I highly suspect it. The area is filled with a great deal of natural beauty that certainly would attract folks to offer a vacation home paradise.

When the river is really running, there is one rapid that is a class IV - V. We have rafted with children as young as six and my parents who are in their 70s. Never any problem and we have always had a fantastic time!
