Durango Jet Charter Information
Charter flights to Durango, a small railroad town of more than18,000 people in the Animas River Valley that is enveloped by the splendid San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado. The town was founded by The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad Company in 1880 for the purpose of mining silver and gold.
Today, people visit to be awed by the landscape that can only be witnessed via the 19th century Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad steam train as it snakes through narrow mountain passes and canyons.
The rugged landscape and terrain attract outdoor adventurers seeking mountain escapes that are ideal for hiking, biking and skiing. The Animas River that flows through town is a ‘gold-medal’ fly fishing paradise. It also provides adrenaline hunters with white water rafting.
With the 80 to 90 degree Fahrenheit summers, pack sunscreen and take plenty of water with you on your outdoor adventures. Don’t forget layered clothing and sunglasses too. If you’re traveling during the 14 degree winter (and skiing at nearby Purgatory Resort), you’ll definitely want to remember your thermals.
