Service Description

This tour shows some of the best of Colorado in a great combination of adventure and relaxation with 3 national parks and 4 naturally hot mineral springs. This tour is great for travelers with a desire for big fun and serious relaxation. Our first day is spent rafting on the Arkansas River through Brown’s Canyon. After a day of travel and excitement, the evening winds down with a soak in hot mineral springs. Stay at an oasis in the San Luis Valley with natural mineral water to soak away the worries of the world and the aches in the muscles. After a great night’s sleep in the dark and quiet of the Valley, visit our first National Park. The Great Sand Dunes NP offers plenty of fun in the sand, including sand boarding and sand sledding on the dunes, hiking, ranger programs, photography and splashing in the creek. After a full day playing at the NP, the next stop is Pagosa Springs Resort for a relaxing soak and dinner. An early departure gets us to Durango where we hop on the Silverton Durango Narrow Gauge Steam Train for a scenic ride through the wilderness to the historical mining town of Silverton. You will have 2 hours exploring Silverton before the return trip to Durango. Our accommodations are an historic hotel in Downtown Durango and dinner is at a highly rated local restaurant. The next National Park is Mesa Verde. Known for the cliff dwellings of the ancient Anasazi, we spend the day exploring the Park and experiencing the cliff dwellings. The Park offers guided tours into the dwellings, and you may choose your level of activity with those tours. Leaving Durango, we cross over Red Mountain Pass, one of the most scenic mountain passes in Colorado. Iron ore created the beautiful hues of red, gold and orange that paint the mountainsides like watercolors throughout this pass. Our day is spent in exploring Telluride, the hidden mountain town of Hollywood elite. The evening is spent in Ouray, a beautiful town known for hot mineral springs, with dinner at a highly rated local restaurant. The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is one of the least visited National Parks in Colorado, but not because it is missing any beauty. It is the least traveled due to its location and least convenient for busloads of tourists. Explore the beauty without crowds of a serene canyon with painted walls and vista views. Our stay is a cabin near a river. Pricing: 2 guests $6750/each 3 guests $5995/each 4 guests $5595/each *Contact us for single traveler rates*
