ADVENTURES: whitewater rafting, fly fishing, mountain biking, ATV tours, snowmobiling
Telluride should be on everyone’s bucket list. But if you want to check off this iconic southwest Colorado mountain town, the way to do it outdoor style is with the guiding hand of Telluride Outfitters. These professionals, operating in the area since 1970, know whitewater rafting in Colorado—and mountain biking, fly fishing, ATV-ing (oh, and snowmobiling in winter). Unlike the more commercially rafted rivers in Colorado, Telluride’s San Miguel River features beautiful red-rock canyons and narrow, winding waterways. Choose a morning and afternoon tour time, and prepare for gently tumbling rapids (up to Class III) and stellar scenery.
