Rafting season in Telluride is finally upon us! Temperatures are rising, and the high country snows are melting! This means high fast waters in our local rivers. June is the best month to get on a raft of any kind and go for a float! The 2021 runoff season will be a good one!
HERE is some information on the summer rafting experience in Telluride, among many other things to do!
Telluride’s local outfitters offer a wide array of guided rafting options to fit your needs:
Mild To Wild
Mild To Wild offers a variety of guided tour options in the region, including our local San Miguel River.
Telluride Outside has been raft guiding since 1982, and they know the ins and outs of our rivers better than anyone!
Or if you prefer something a little less turbulent, grab a stand up paddleboard or an inflatable duckie and do a more leisurely float down the upper San Miguel. The portion of the river through the valley floor has been re-directed back to it’s natural flow resulting in a lovely curvy float. Don’t have a stand up paddleboard? No problem, you can rent one from Telluride Bootdoctors or The Jagged Edge in town!
And of course you can always grab an innertube and jump in at Town Park and float through town. You can buy innertubes at the local Ace Hardware store. It’s an incredibly cheap way to spend a splashy fun afternoon. But be aware, that water was snow less than 24 hour ago, so it’s coooooooold!
