There’s nothing quite like an adventure in the Rockies. When you’re not enjoying the luxurious comforts of your vacation home, you’ll certainly be exploring the awe-inspiring landscape of the Rocky Mountains, by hitting the slopes or enjoying the summer forest. If you’d like to explore the wilderness with a little more intensity and see exclusive, secluded sights, take a look at the best Winter Park tour and nearby areas!
Grand Adventures Snowmobile Tours
81699 US-40, Winter Park, CO 80482
Trailblaze through the snow-covered paths of the mountainside and take in magnificent views on one of several guided snowmobile tours from Grand Adventures. They offer an impressive range of tours, including two-hour, three-hour and four-hour journeys, as well as an hour-long family-friendly excursion designed for younger adventurers. Whichever you choose, you’ll be treated to zipping through powdered meadows, traversing forest trails, and views of snow-capped peaks. Their tours are the only in the county to offer trips to the continental divide, where tours can journey thousands of feet and enjoy views of the Winter Park Ski Resort and the Fraser Valley. And rest assured, there’s a tour for all experience levels!
MAD Adventures Clear Creek Rafting Tour
PO Box 1329, Winter Park, CO 80482
Just a short drive from Winter Park you can experience a true river-rafting adventure! Offering longer trips and a half day trip, these exciting tours take you down the rapids of Clear Creek past pine tree forests and through the former mining town of Idaho Springs. You even have the change to spy wildlife like river otters, big horn sheep, and maybe a bear, if you’re lucky! There are different tours for varied experience levels and classes of rapids, and your experienced guide will help you safely down the river—just be prepared to get a bit wet. But rest assured, wetsuits are available for rent during any time of the rafting season.
Grand Adventure Balloon Tours
220 County Rd 522, Fraser, CO 80442
This part of the Colorado Rockies was once named one of the Top 10 Most Beautiful Destinations to Balloon in the World, and even from the ground, it’s not hard to see why! Imagine soaring to flight and being greeted by otherworldly views of the continental divide and snow-covered mountains stretching off into the distance. You’ll have your flight with a skilled and experienced pilot, and the journey is designed to be peaceful and awe-inspiring, and since the wind is different every day, no two flights are ever completely the same. The flights depart early, so you’ll enjoy a spectacular sunrise, and when you land, you’ll toast your journey with champagne, a time-honored tradition hundreds of years old.
