We found Mild to Wild through our AAA guide book and we are so glad we did. We walked in and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our boys are 6 & 9 and they helped us pick just the right trip for their first time. They have reasonable wet suit rentals. We had three guides in our raft and... More

My wife and I went on this trip yesterday (6/2/15). The river was challenging but not overwhelming, with several class four rapids and two class fives, with lots of twos and threes. Now is the time to check it out! More importantly, the guides were awesome, extremely professional and clearly had the mindset of safety first. We have taken several... More

My mom is visiting Durango from Louisiana and we had never been rafting before. We did the economy trip on the Lower Animas to give it a try. Mike "Deep Dish" was our guide and we highly recommend him. He was full of information about Durango and the Animas River. We learned some basic rafting skills and now my mom... More

We were the first customers of the season and the only customers that day, so we enjoyed basically a private jeep tour. It was a chilly, drizzly day, so thankfully an enclosed vehicle was substituted for a jeep. Our tour guide, Frank Miller, is a local native and was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made the trip a real adventure!... More

My wife and I recently took a half-day raft trip down the Lower Animas River. There had been lots of snow in the mountains, so the river was running near 2000 cfs. We are what is sometimes called "an elderly couple" so guides will assume that we want to take it easy on the water. Not the case for us.... More

Mild to Wild is awesome!! We rafted the upper Piedra, which is beautiful with amazing scenery and Class 4 rapids. It was perfect for my adventurous 13 year old son. The guides are friendly, competent and very enthusiastic which adds to the fun! They prepared a fabulous lunch mid-way and built a fire so we could warm up. All-in-all it... More

we were on the 2nd trip of this season, jeep and train trip. Jeb, our guide was a real cool dude, he was on time at pick up, the snow started coming down on our bus trip up thru the mountains to Silverton, but Jeb wasn't bothered as he generally chatted away to us. Silverton was still relatively shut down... More
