Rafting in the San Juans

| Tellurides Staff | Blog

Hello Adventurers,

Get ready to embark on a thrilling rafting experience on the fast-paced and intermediate-level rapids of the San Miguel and Dolores Rivers.

For those seeking an adventurous journey, the San Miguel River is a must-visit. Its fast-flowing rapids require technical expertise and river knowledge, making it suitable for thrill-seekers. Thanks to the abundant snowpack this year, the river is flowing above average levels, providing an extended season of excitement. The Upper San Miguel section guarantees a thrilling rush with its fast waters, while the Lower section offers a slightly more moderate pace.

Discover the awe-inspiring Dolores River, a remarkable destination for whitewater enthusiasts. Explore the Lower Dolores for an unforgettable single or multi-day adventure, where you'll navigate through the breathtaking canyons of Slickrock and Ponderosa. Whether you're an experienced adventurer or a beginner, this river caters to all levels of expertise. Take advantage of the optimal water conditions this spring and embark on an extraordinary rafting expedition.

To ensure a seamless and safe adventure, we recommend commercial outfitters who offer half and full day trips on the San Miguel River. Their expert guides will maximize your enjoyment while prioritizing your safety.

Book your adventure today and let the adrenaline flow!

Happy rafting,
