Adventures in Durango
From the Durango Wine and Rails excursion to the Snowmobile Adventure Package, the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad has trip options for all ages and interests. Embark from the original 1882 train depot right in town, then climb more than 3,000 feet in elevation and travel 45 miles along the tumbling Animas River to the mining hamlet of Silverton.
The train is just one of many things to do in the Durango area, from hiking and mountain biking in the summer to snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter. Slumber at the center of that action at the 1887 Strater Hotel, which has beautiful rooms furnished with Victorian antiques. Meanwhile, Silverton brims with historic sites (the entire town is a National Historic Landmark), welcoming shops and restaurants, and plenty of year-round outdoor adventure.
