The Rockies

Go Rafting in the Colorado River or Hike the Mountains of Utah

The Rocky Mountains provide a stunning backdrop for the ultimate adventure trip. With such beautiful natural scenery, it’s no wonder that the Rockies are viewed as one of the best places to hike, ski, go mountain biking or even experience a riveting river rafting excursion.

The Rocky Mountain National Park covers 415 square miles in northern Colorado and includes 450 miles of rivers and streams, over 300 miles of hiking trails and 156 lakes as well as 77 towering peaks over 12,000 feet high. It’s no wonder the park attracts around three million visitors each year. Keep an eye out for the many mammals, including bighorn sheep, black bears, mountain lions and moose, that make their home within the park.

Of course, the Rocky Mountains stretch beyond the borders of the national park as the massive range creates the backbone of America from Idaho and Montana in the north to New Mexico in the south.

The list of adventure vacations you can experience in the region is extensive. Check out the Moab area in Utah, which boasts both Arches and Canyonlands national parks, or explore the renowned ski resorts of Aspen. For whitewater rafting, check out the Arkansas River in central Colorado, where half day to multi day excursions are available for all experience levels. If mountain biking is more your speed, you can cruise along the Dakota Trail in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain region truly has something for everyone who yearns for adventure travel. After all the adventure travel fun, you’ll need a comfortable place to rest and you have many incredible resorts to choose from in the Rocky Mountains.
