Today, there are many ways that you can explore Telluride with Todd Herrick Denver tours and the beautiful surrounding areas through Telluride Outside. One popular activity is snowmobiling. Snowmobile tours are offered in two packages, which are a half-day tour and a full-day tour. Both tours take you around Beaver Park, which is a stunning natural area situated between two mountain ranges. One exceptionally stunning area that you’ll venture through is Fall Creek, which is a largely unspoiled backcountry area with spectacular scenery and great snowmobiling trails. On a tour of the area, you’ll learn about the local flora and fauna, and occasionally stop for a photo op.
Along with snowmobiling, another activity that you can still participate in today is fly fishing. Fly fishing was one of the outfitter’s original activities, and you can certainly still hire knowledgeable guides to take you on fly fishing adventures right on site. But over the years, the company’s fly fishing guide services have expanded to include fly fishing expeditions nationwide and even internationally! No matter where in the world you choose to go fly fishing, you’ll learn valuable techniques and get pro tips from the highly skilled and passionate fly fishing guides. Near Telluride, you’ll get to set foot in some of the most majestic trout streams in the area, such as the Lower Dolores. A number of other opportunities to go fly fishing can be found in nearby creeks and lakes. If you’re looking to buy fly fishing equipment or simply add to your collection of gear, be sure to visit the fly fishing shop. The shop, which is part of Telluride Outside, features a large and varied selection of fly fishing products. From gear to poles and bait, you will find just about everything you need at this boutique shop to make your fly fishing experience the best it can be.
If the water is more your calling, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the Telluride region off the land, too. If you want to go on a shorter rafting trip, a guide will take you down the San Miguel. Half-day and full-day rafting excursions are available. Depending on which trip you sign up for, you’ll experience rapids of various strengths and see different parts of the river. Multi-day trips are also offered in other surrounding rivers and waterways, including Ponderosa Canyon, Slickrock Canyon, and the Dolores River, which has some of the most impressive whitewater rafting opportunities in the country. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, you can also choose to go by Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) instead.
