  • Denver/Boulder: Rocky Mountain National Park Tour

    1. Denver/Boulder: Rocky Mountain National Park Tour

    Enter the Rocky Mountain National Park and experience the wonders that inspired early explorers to push for the protection of its amazing landscape. See Long’s Peak, the park’s highest mountain, soaring into the sky at 14,259 feet. Admire glacial-carved valleys, filled with aspen and pine trees. From Denver, drive along the Front Range through Boulder with its famous Flatirons Rock Formations. Continue through canyons alive with wildlife up to Estes Park, the charming town at the entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Once you have entered the park your guide will take you to the best spots for wildlife viewing, photographs, walks, or just relaxing. Throughout the summer the tour will take you up trail ridge road to 13,000 feet. In the winter the high alpine road is closed and more time will be spent discovering the valley and its crystal clear alpine lakes.

    Aaron was very knowledgeable about the park, its history and the surrounding area. The park is beautiful. I would have liked to do a little more hiking, but it was a pretty windy day when we got up high.

  • Denver: Rocky Mountain Escape

    2. Denver: Rocky Mountain Escape

    Explore the grand expanse of the Rocky Mountains with a 4-hour driving tour through off-the-beaten-path areas. After meeting your guide in an upscale car in central Denver, head off for an adventure through some of the country’s most stunning viewpoints. As you ascend towards the mountain peaks, breathe in the mountain air and take time to explore the scenic viewpoints, gazing down at the serene expanses below you. As you move between an array of vistas, your local guide will fill you in on Colorado’s diverse wildlife, as well as the urban culture that makes the state so unique. Afterwards, you'll head back down the mountain, filled with a sense of mountain serenity.

    This experience was amazing. It was worth way more than what I paid for it. Our tour guide, Jed, was so experienced and knew a lot of the history of the mountains without boring us with unnecessary details. The scenery was beautiful and the amount of time we got to explore and walk around on our own was the best. There is a little town in Idaho Springs with a lot of small souvenir shops with everything you could think of. The van we were in was very comfortable, even with every seat filled. I would recommend this adventure to any and everyone, you will not be disappointed. I’m so glad I got to experience this and I will remember it forever!
