Durango & Silverton  4×4 Tours

Customize your tour based on what feast you would like to provide for your eyes. Enjoy the drive with an experienced guide at the wheel. All tours are customer specific and most are private so just tell your guide what you desire, then sit back and relax. Yes it's that easy! We have over 7 days of trails up in the San Juan mountains so the options are almost limitless.

Our custom trips include: Large groups, photo trips, rock-hounding, (think wedding receptions, family reunions, corporate retreats, business meetings, etc.), private tours, railroad history, special trips for boy scouts, girl scouts, church groups and other special activities. Give us a call for more information at 970-387-5565.

In addition to San Juan Backcountry Tours, you can rent a Jeep, ATV/UTV, or simply be dropped off at a Lake or Trailhead of your choice.

Please reserve your Durango & Silverton guided tour dates and equipment as soon as possible, especially during peak season. (June through mid-August)
