Telluride Rafting on the San Miguel River

Join us on a raft trip down the San Miguel River in Telluride, CO. In the spring and early summer this snow- melt fed river plunges from the high peaks of the San Juan Mountains and pulsates through San Miguel and Norwood canyons. The contrast of the lush riparian ecosystem and the brilliant red sandstone canyon is undeniably unique. Starting just 5 miles Northwest of Telluride, the San Miguel River contains 40 miles of uninterrupted class III whitewater. In true Sierra style, our small maneuverable raft offers the most dynamic ride on the San Miguel River. We’ll provide your group with the best equipment and the most experienced guides on a trip down one of the few remaining free flowing rivers in Colorado.  You will be inspired by the narrow twisting waterway and towering red-rock walls of this Colorado jewel!
