Fresh mountain air, beautiful landscape and scenery, and a four-seasons climate that provides year-round fun and excitement. No matter when you decide to visit Winter Park, you’ll find plenty to do and see. Winter sports enthusiasts will love spending hours on the slopes, but there are many other Winter Park tours and experiences that will give you a taste of the fun and excitement Winter Park offers.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Fly high above the mountains and beautiful scenery of Winter Park and the Fraser Valley with a hot air balloon ride from Grand Adventure. Private flights are available so it’s just you and your group flying over sights like the Continental Divide, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Fraser River. You’ll want to get a good night’s sleep the night before, and make sure to bring your camera, as all flights take off at sunrise. Colorado’s beautiful landscape and the bird’s eye view of it all, including wildlife in their natural habitat, is worth the early wake up call. Celebrate afterward with a champagne toast.
Scenic Snowcat Tour
If your getaway comes in the winter months, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and more are likely on your list. Get out and explore the snow-blanketed terrain of Winter Park on a Snowcat. Tours are 90 minutes and cut through the snowy terrain of the Fraser Valley and learn about the area, including local flora and fauna. A Gondola ticket is included so you can continue exploring the mountain at your own pace.
Based in Winter Park, MAD Adventures offers outdoor experiences like off-roading and river rafting. Stay close to Winter Park with the family-friendly Upper Colorado River experience that starts just outside of Kremmling, about 45 minutes from Winter Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Steamboat Springs. Guests with more rafting experience or in search of more thrills can head to Clear Creek just west of Denver where they’ll negotiate Class III and Class IV rapids. They also provide off-road tours of the Continental Divide at nearly 12,000 feet in elevation! Ask about age and other restrictions when booking.
All aboard for a different way to see some places a rental vehicle can’t reach. Everyone in the group will enjoy a train ride on an old-time steam or diesel locomotive on the Georgetown Loop Railroad. The railroad is about 45 minutes from Winter Park and brings Colorado’s scenery and history to life in a way everyone will love. The loop is 3.1 miles long and climbs 640 feet over mountainous terrain for a breathtaking view of the area.
