Fly Fishing: Telluride is one of the finest fly fishing destinations in the country. We guide four major rivers in the Telluride area: the San Miguel, Dolores, Uncompahgre and Gunnison, as well as several local lakes and alpine creeks. Our guides are excellent instructors and we really enjoy teaching the sport at all levels of the game. Treat yourself to a top quality guided fly fishing trip with Telluride Outside.
Rafting: The San Miguel River offers excellent rafting just a few minutes from Telluride. Family-friendly half day trips on the Lower San Miguel cover 9 miles of splashy class II-III whitewater. The Upper San Miguel offers high speed class III+ whitewater for experienced rafters and aggressive paddlers. Full day trips are available on the upper river and also through the scenic Norwood Canyon.
4-WD Tours: Telluride Outside offers both half and full day 4-WD tours in Telluride’s magnificent San Juan Mountains. Our most popular tours include Imogene Pass/Tomboy Ghost Town, Ophir Pass and Black Bear Pass, as well as sunset tours and excursions to Bridal Veil Falls. Our guides are experts in local mining history and we drive beautiful new vehicles converted with special seating canopies for maximum comfort, safety and optimal viewing.
Mountain Biking: Telluride Outside offers half and full day trips for mountain bikers of every ability. Our most popular tour is a 17-mile downhill ride on the Galloping Goose trail, beginning at over 10,000 feet, winding around two sub-alpine lakes and descending into the beautiful South Fork Valley of the San Miguel River. The Galloping Goose is a beginner-intermediate trail, long enough to entertain advanced riders but easy enough for novice riders. Custom tours and advanced rides are available upon request.
Photography Tours: The San Juan Mountains are a photographer’s dreamscape. Iconic picturescapes, such as Wilson Peak, Bear Creek and the view from Imogene Pass, are so numerous that they obscure the endless secrets of these mountains that unfold for the exploring photographer.
