After morning pickup at your Boulder or Denver accommodations, travel west through the foothills and into the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Catch sight of historic silver mining towns along the way, and make an optional stop at the popular summer resort town of Estes Park, home to the elegant Stanley Hotel that inspired the setting for the horror flick 'The Shining.'

Continue on to enter Rocky Mountain National Park, a protected natural playground that spans 415 square miles (670 square km) of lakes, forests, and mountains laced with pristine picnic spots, hiking trails, and 72 peaks with elevations of 12,000 feet (3,660 meters) or higher. The park is also renowned for its wildlife, so be on the lookout for native Colorado critters like moose, black bears, deer, elk, marmots, and soaring birds of prey including hawks and eagles.

Each season offers its own rewards, from the wildflowers of spring and summer to the crisp air and fiery aspens of autumn and snow-covered peaks of winter. If visiting during the summer, drive up Trail Ridge Road, Colorado’s ‘highway to the sky’ that crosses the Continental Divide and offers stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains from an above-timberline vantage point. Due to snowpack, Trail Ridge Road is usually closed October through May, so if visiting during this time explore the alpine lakes of the valley floor instead.

The day’s itinerary can be customized to suit the interests of your group, so be sure to let your guide know if there's anything you’d like to see. Groups of six people or fewer can travel in a luxury SUV, while a luxury van is available for parties of up to 14.

Unforgettable Family Trip
, Mar 2022
Our guide, Jed, was fantastic! He took us on a private tour of Rocky Mountain National Park, which was spectacular! We saw the “Big 4” wildlife … bighorn sheep, tons of elk, mule deer and a moose and her baby!! The scenery was breathtaking. We walked across frozen Bear Lake and loved it! Jed helped us through all the slippery spots, and he was extremely knowledgeable about all things Rocky Mountains! He recommended lunch at Wild Rose in Estes Park, which was incredible! Thanks, Jed, for an unforgettable family trip!
Great day in the Rocky's

This was a great trip. We loved the private tour and all the great locations our guide Jeb took us to. He was wonderful. He was so informative about the area. At the end of the day, he even stopped for pie and hot chocolate. If you take this trip, be sure to ask for Jeb.

Our private tour met our expectations. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Not only was he knowledgeable about the park he was also informative about the surrounding towns. It was the end of the season before they closed the park so we were fortunate with our timing.
