Where to Go White Water Rafting in Durango, CO

Durango, Colorado, is an ideal place for people who want to go white water rafting during their vacations. The Animas River flows through Durango, and a variety of white water rafting trips are available.

4 Corners Whitewater offers several types of rafting trips. Families can float down the lower part of the river through small rapids. Rafters will see cottonwood trees along the river during part of this trip. Another trip offered by this company consists of a train trip to the San Juan National Forest and a rafting trip along the upper part of the Animas River.
