Explore the Rocky Mountains
A private tour of Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park is a full-day tour (from 8-10 hours), depending on the itinerary. Pick-up and Drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Colorado and the Rockies have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline.
No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some itinerary suggestions to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:
Every tour starts with a 90 minute to 2 hour drive out of Denver and towards the picturesque Rocky Mountains, after picking you up at your hotel or rental. Along the drive, you’ll get to know your guide and hear some history about Denver and these epic parks. As you wind through the quintessential Colorado landscape, you’ll learn about the adventures had “out West” by some well-known historical characters as well as the modern-day attractions locals and visitors are drawn to. You can choose to start at either park – they’re very close to each other and a great way to start your tour.
Rocky Mountain National Park is top-of-the-list for US National Parks – for visitors to the US, Americans, and area locals. This postcard-perfect park is home to everything an outdoor-lover could ever want: hiking trails of all lengths and difficulties (two of our favorites are hikes to Emerald Lake and to Glacier Gorge), wildlife (such as bighorn sheep, elk, muledeer), sweeping vistas (like a drive up to the park’s highest-elevation point – Gore Range Overlook), and, of course, the snow-capped Rocky Mountains. Estes Park may be a lesser-known park, but it offers equally awesome activities, views, and natural beauty), a wonderful hidden gem of the Rockies.
Other area options include visiting a brewery to try a craft beer, grabbing lunch at a local restaurant, taking on a more adventurous activity (like kayaking or horseback riding) or, if you’re a movie or horror or Stephen King fan, you can visit the iconic Stanley Hotel, made famous in The Shining. Your Rockies wish is our command!
