Durango Tour Ideas
The bus to Silverton and train back to Durango option is one of our most popular, allowing you the chance to experience both the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and the breathtaking Million Dollar Skyway while shortening your time on the train. You will not want to miss this spectacular roadway; a two-lane blacktop forms a swirling ribbon through the San Juan Mountains, the wildest and ruggedest peaks in the Colorado Rockies. It is nice to have someone else drive so you can take in the views of the beautiful peaks and cliffs right next to the road. It is rated one of the top 10 most scenic drives to do in the U.S. Because you will be taking the train one-way, we will be sure to hand-pick your seats on the side of the train that has the most magnificent views.
