Stand Up Paddle Boarding 

SUP Boarding is a ton of fun, especially in Telluride. You can rent a board and go at your own pace, paddling around the high alpine lakes and slow-moving waters nearby, or you can reach out to a guide service to try out something a bit more challenging. Just minutes from downtown Telluride lie several high-alpine lakes and hidden gems to paddle around. Check out more info below regarding SUP rentals, guide services, and our favorite SUP spots!


The San Miguel River, in addition to the surrounding rivers nearby, offers a dynamic variety of kayaking experiences ranging from relaxing to challenging: Rent a kayak and trek up to a nearby, high-alpine lake and take in the amazing views and serenity (maybe even with a fly fishing rod); reach out to one of the many experienced and dedicated guide services to lead you through some of the area's Class II-III rapids; or take a kayaking class and get your feet wet.
