Dolores River Photos
Travel deep into the southwestern part of Colorado near Durango and Cortez to take on the Dolores River—one of the most stunning Colorado whitewater rafting destinations. This river is home to beautiful alpine desert landscape featuring spectacular red cliffs over 1,000 feet tall, towering Ponderosa pines, and luscious Douglas firs. As you raft down the Dolores you’ll likely encounter deer and bighorn sheep roaming among the scenic wilderness landscape. This stretch of whitewater also boasts class III-IV rapids including the infamous Snaggletooth Rapid and the miles long House Rock Rapid.
