Get active in Colorado surrounded by scenic rivers, mountains, and lakes
Enjoy biking, hiking, rafting and kayaking adventures on this active trip which showcases Colorado’s incredible natural beauty. With great weather and plenty of trails, the Arkansas River Valley has some of Colorado’s best and most scenic mountain biking tracks. You’ll also tackle the Zoom Flume and other rapids on a scenic rafting trip, spot wildlife such as moose and beavers on a half-day kayak tour, take in alpine vistas on a hike to a gold mine ‘ghost town’, and soak up superb mountain scenery. Add the pretty lakeside town of Frisco and you’ve got the perfect Active adventure.
Tackle the Zoom Flume, Big Drop, and ominously-named Widowmaker rapids on a scenic rafting trip that’s easy enough for beginners but also has enough thrills for more experienced rafters.
Enjoy striking views of the Arapahoe Basin reflected in the waters of Loveland Pass Lake as you keep an eye out for marmots, pika, birds, and – depending on the season - beautiful wildflowers.
Drive in circles up, and up, and up Spiral Drive to take in the amazing vista from ‘The Big S’, a cone-shaped mountain that dominates the town of Denver.
See Lake Dillon on a half-day kayak tour that offers easy paddling along a protected shoreline with wildlife spotting and spectacular views of three mountain ranges.
Ride the Arkansas River Valley, one of Colorado’s best mountain biking destinations, with an experienced guide to show you the most scenic and rewarding trails.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
This is an action-packed itinerary, and a moderate level of fitness will help you get the most out of all the included activities. You must be confident in the water for kayaking and rafting.
