Climb from the streets of the "Mile High City" to Rocky Mountain National Park, on a day trip that showcases the rugged beauty of Colorado's mountains. Weave through small, historic towns and drive over alpine passes, as you scan the horizon for mountain wildlife like elk, black bears, or moose. Take a breath of fresh mountain air while hiking out on the trails, and feel like you're standing on top of the world up here on America's backbone.
What to Expect

Meet the guide at 9 am at Denver Union Station or at 9.45am in Boulder (See Important Info). The scenic drive to Estes Park includes charming small towns and rugged canyons. Pass the historic Stanley Hotel, made famous for it’s starring role in the movie 'The Shining.'

While entering Rocky Mountain National Park, experience the wonders that inspired early explorers to push for the protection of this amazing landscape. Catch a view of Long’s Peak, the park’s highest, soaring into the sky at 14,259 feet and the glacial-carved valleys, filled with Aspen and pine trees. The guide will lead the way to the best viewpoints, with plenty of time to hop out of the van and explore.

Summer: The summer tour begins after memorial weekend and ends mid October. Throughout the summer the tour will take you up trail ridge road to 13'000 feet.

Winter: In the winter the high alpine road is closed and more time will be spent discovering the valley and its crystal clear alpine lakes. 

All entrance and National Park fees are included and a sandwich for lunch is provided.

**LUNCH** - This tour comes with choice of a turkey or vegetarian sandwich.  Please include your preference as well as any dietary restrictions in the Special Requirements field during checkout.

Likely better when the road isn’t closed

The road through the park was seasonally closed about 10 days prior to my excursion on October 13th. As a result the tour was not as full-featured as I had anticipated. It was still very scenic, of course, as Rocky Mountain park is simply beautiful,...More
