Durango to Silverton and return
The "ALL ABOARD" call and two blows of the whistle signal the start of your journey. Over the next 3.5 hours you will be treated to spectacular mountain and canyon scenery. Upon arriving in Silverton you will have about 2 hours to explore this historic gold mining town, giving you plenty of time for shopping and lunch. Make sure to keep an ear open for the sound of the train whistle signaling your departure from Silverton and restful trip back to Durango. Overnight again at the Durango Downtown Inn or comparable hotel in Durango.
This tour ends as you check out of the hotel (by 11 am).
