Overview
Rocky Mountain National Park is a national treasure, offering hundreds of miles of trails, plentiful wildlife, and fantastic Alpine views. Avoid the hassle of driving from Denver with this full-day tour, where you enjoy easy travel from the downtown area. Along the way, learn about the geography from your driver-guide, stop for lunch in Grand Lake, and tour through the diverse landscapes in the park.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Some of the most beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains lies just a short drive from Denver. Your full-day tour begins with pickup at Denver Union Station. Learn about Colorado’s cultural and geologic history from your driver-guide on the approximately 1-hour drive west into the mountains. 

    After leaving the bustle of the city behind, begin climbing up the hairpin curves of Berthoud Pass, which crosses the Continental Divide. On the other side of the pass, you’ll be deep in the heart Colorado’s mountain country. Pass through the ski resort town of Winter Park and continue on to the charming town of Grand Lake, where you’ll enjoy a café lunch on the shores of Colorado’s deepest and largest natural lake. 

    Continue on to enter Rocky Mountain National Park, beloved by locals and visitors alike for its 265,000 acres (107,240 hectares) of pristine mountain landscapes including rugged peaks, alpine meadows and unspoiled lakes. The park is also home to an array of wildlife such as bighorn sheep, elk, moose and black bears, so be sure to keep your camera handy! 

    On the return trip to Denver, enjoy spectacular mountain vistas as you drive across historic Trail Ridge Road, which peaks over timberline at a breathtaking 12,000 feet (3,658 meters) above sea level. Your 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at Denver Union Station in the early evening.
