  • 306rachaelb 0 contributions 5.0 of 5 bubbles Amazing Rocky Mountain Winter Safari Tour! My husband and I took a trip to Colorado for our fifth wedding anniversary. On the day of our tour, the weather took a turn and was 22 degrees and snowing. Nevertheless, we bundled up and had a fantastic time! Craig was our guide, and he was amazing! He was very knowledgeable, funny, had many great stories, and even provided us with yummy hot chocolate and blankets! We are planning on coming back next year, and requesting another tour with Craig!

  • annayrudy 0 contributions 5.0 of 5 bubbles Tour in Feb 2024 Winter Season Booked an off-season tour with my husband and we loved it. Rocky Mountain National Park was beautiful to see during the winter with all the snow. Our tour guide Nick made it a fun trip we even had a bonus, the owner went on our tour. I was concerned that I would be cold sitting in the Jeep truck but not at all, the jeep had heaters, we even had hot chocolate during the trip. I felt safe in the jeep and really enjoyed riding in the back and watching the view from the back. Read more Written February 25, 2024

  • 278krisl 0 contributions 4.0 of 5 bubbles Worth it for the opportunity to see the Park without driving ourselves. We had a beautiful night for our Bear Lake tour. We left on time, and there were just two couples on the tour so we had fun getting to know each other. This is basically a ride to and from the destination. Our guide gave us a couple of "dad jokes" but nothing in regards to the Park, the town, the history, nothing. He was very friendly and knew we were looking for elk, so he tried to find some for us. I just wouldn't call this a "tour" or him a "guide". Fair warning - those open Jeeps get COLD, so be prepared, there's no community blankets provided. Read more Written September 28, 2023

It was the first time my husband, who typically drives us through the park and up to Trail Ridge, got to really enjoy all of the sights and scenery. We saw new things as we went up Old Fall River Road. We saw wildlife, waterfalls and learned so much from Pete. His jokes were pretty good, too. Highly recommend! Read more Written September 25, 2023

  • katdru3467 0 contributions 5.0 of 5 bubbles Totally Worth It!! This was such a fun, memorable way to experience RMNP! Our tour guide Dan was great - he shared plenty of interesting facts about the park, cracked some funny jokes, made the trip interactive, and also gave us time to just enjoy the views on our own. Blankets are provided in case it gets too chilly (it's an open-air jeep), and Dan also gave us snacks along the way. We saw plenty of amazing wildlife, and just going up Old Fall River Road in itself was quite the breathtaking experience. This tour is very much worth it (especially if you don't want to deal with the hassle of timed entry or are too scared to do the drive on your own)! Read more Written September 18, 2023

2:00 PM tour on 3/29/24. We were two groups of three. Our driver was Dan, very knowledgeable guide. The tour started out great, we made it to the turn around point and started heading back to the valley and then Bear Lake. We saw mule deer on the side of the road. So our tour guide pulled off to the side of the road so we could get some pictures. The turnout was not level and the jeep was leaning significantly. As we started to pull out of the turnout, we saw elk to the right. Which for whatever reason Dan steered right into a snow patch. As we were trying to leave after the elk sighting, we were now leaning even more and Dan was spinning the wheels in the snow. We asked Dan to stop the jeep so we could get out while he got the jeep out of the snow. As Dan tried to get out of the snow, the jeep kept sliding right until a tree stopped before tipping over. Dan then tells us we are stuck until a tow truck comes or another jeep arrives. As we are waiting for help, we notice the jeep tires are bald.We are now standing on the side of the road in a light snow and 33 degrees. Approximately 1 hour later, the owner Nicole shows up with another jeep. She tells Dan to take us in the new jeep and continue the tour. As a group of 6, we decided to proceed to Bear Lake and then head back to Estes Park. As we are driving to Bear Lake, Dan's driving becomes very erratic and unsafe. The roads at this time are very wet and even icy in parts. We snow shoe Bear Lake, great sight. Dan receives a phone call from the owner, Nicole, saying not to answer any calls from the park rangers. We heard this as Dan was on speaker phone. As we are driving down the mountain, a US Park Ranger pulls the jeep over at tuxedo turnout. The park ranger is talking to Dan, but we can hear everything as we are sitting in the back of the jeep. Dan was informed hitting the tree was considered a motor vehicle accident and he left the scene. The ranger also told Dan the tires were unsafe in any weather condition. The ranger inspects our jeep and realizes we do not have a front license plate, we have two rear license plates, one from OK and one from CO. The ranger now asks for registration and insurance from Dan, but there is none in the glove box. The ranger then types in the CO plates and realizes it doesn't even match this vehicle. The ranger proceeds to remove the two plates. At that time, we are informed by the ranger that the jeep is going to be impounded. The ranger informs Dan that there are approximately 5-7 citations going to be issued. Again, the owner, Nicole, shows up with a friend to take us back to our vehicles. But before we can leave, Nicole proceeds to argue with the rangers. We have now been sitting on the side of the road for the second time and another 45 minutes in 33 degree weather. The owner, Nicole, takes Dan and the other three person group back to town in her car. My family rode with the owners friend. We are talking with our driver as we are heading back to Estes Park. She makes a weird comment as to the bald tires on the jeep that got stuck. She said she informed someone as to that jeep was unsafe to use. As we (both families) are waiting to talk to Nicole about the last four 4 1/2 hours, she just sits in her car. Finally, my wife knocks on the car asking for her to come speak with us. The owner states she didn't know we were waiting to speak to her. We confront the owner about a refund, and the safety of our tour. No insurance on the vehicle, what if someone worse would have happened? The owner refunded our money, but did not take responsibility about any of the issues that day. In my opinion, you would think the business would fix the issues before continuing on with yours. My family was in Estes Park the next day, so we happened to drive by the facility and noticed they were conducting business as usual. Avoid this business as safety is not important and the owner doesn't care about anything but money! I left out a lot of details, but again don't go to this company! What a sham and scam of a business!

Our family's time on this tour was amazing. Butch was our tour guide and did an incredible job not only giving information but took the time to tell personal stories about people and places on the tour. He made it very personable and was great with our kids. When you do this tour ask for Butch. I highly recommend and you won't be disappointed‼

On 9/15/23, 4 of us took The Rocky Mountain Safari tour. Pete was our guide. There were 8 of us total on the tour and 2 of us were scared of heights. Pete was fun, informative, and very sensitive to the fear factor. He did everything he could to make us feel comfortable. We stopped and hiked down to a waterfall and some of us were slower than others, but he made sure everyone who wanted to hike down was able to do so. The weather wasn't as cooperative as Pete would've liked-lots of clouds and colder temps, but we had a blast. He did his best to scout out wildlife for us and answer any of our questions. I was very apprehensive about the tour, but I had a great time and would do it again in a heartbeat.

This is an excellent tour. Craig was an informative guide and brought our small group to several sites in the park. We saw things that we would have missed if we simply drove into the park. I highly recommend the tour.

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Green Jeep. It was a little cold but the sun was out so we opted to leave the top off and the the sides down. They provided blankets, which came in handy, and offered us hot chocolate. The scenery was amazing! Our guide Craig was great. We loved the local stories and his knowledge about wildlife in the park. We were a group of five so it was like a private tour. Craig asked us if we wanted to see this or that, if we wanted to hike, sled, etc. and adjusted his time to what we wanted to do/see. I would strongly recommend to anyone visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park.

We loved this tour! We are from out of town and wanted to be able to see as much of the mountains and Estes Park as we could in the short time we were visiting. Our tour guide was Dan. He was very knowledgeable and so sweet. He drove very safely and definitely made us feel at ease when navigating the turns around the mountain at high altitudes. We got up to 12,500 feet and took the 4:30/5 pm tour so that we could see sunset. I definitely recommend bringing a jacket if you dress warmly because the higher you climb on the tour the colder it gets. The wind was what was really chilly at the top of the mountain once we stopped to watch the sunset. At the highest altitude when we stopped for sunset it was 53 degrees but the wind made it feel much colder. (We took this tour in the last week of September) I also recommend bringing your own water, you can leave it in the jeep when the group ventures out on a trail. We saw bighorn sheep, elk and Pikas once we reached the top of the park at the highest elevation. Dan let us all stop to take pictures and pulled off to the side of the road to let us have time to take photos and watch the sun fully set over the mountains. I would highly recommend this tour! Dan showed us beautiful views, some small trails, waterfalls, wildlife, photo ops and the park's history all in 3 hours. We will definitely be back :)

Green Jeep tours were recommended to us and was a great way to get a feel for RMNP and Estes. Our driver, Greg was knowledgeable and made the experience fun. About 3 hours and well worth the time. Also gave us a great restaurant suggestion, Bird & Jim. We ate lunch there after our tour and it was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Awesome adventure with Dan. A great mix of educational info and time to enjoy on your own. Even with young kids and some cold and rainy weather, we had a great time. Such a great way to see the park, especially if you're only going for the day.

Fritz was our driver and he was right up our alley - funny and easy to get along with! We did the off road tour... literally a 4x4 trail in Allenspark. This isn't one for people looking to see herds of elk or get a tour of RMNP. What you do see are wonderful views of Meeker and Longs Peak, and glorious shots of aspen trees without all the traffic. We had a wonderful experience and the only casualty we had was Fritz's green step stool!

We had a really good time today with Pete. We wanted to try to see some wildlife and we knew if we just tried to hike that it may be hit or miss. So we decided to do a tour today and then try to hike a shorter distance tomorrow near Pete's recommendations. Pete was very patient, explained the road systems as bit of History of the park. We did see quite a few elk today along with Marmot. We also walked a short bit of time to see some beautiful waterfalls. Follow directions and bring coats, even if it's July as the top of the mountain is dang cold and still has snow! They bring water and granola bars on the 3 hour if needed. He spent a bit of time also explaining the flowers (as I was interested) as well as gave us some good advice on what restaurants and such to see in town. Definitely a good 3 hours spent. Total cost for private tour was $500.

  • What you need to know about reservations for Rocky Mountain National Park
  • How to tour Rocky Mountain National Park
  • The best Rocky Mountain National Park tours, sorted by start location

When to Visit Rocky Mountain National Park

You can visit Rocky Mountain National Park all year-round, but different seasons have different considerations to keep in mind.

Generally, late June to mid-October is the best time to visit Rocky Mountain National Park.

Local Tip: This is when Trail Ridge Road is open (generally) and you can access all areas of the park.

In the summer and early fall, the park will be extremely crowded, and you will have to make a timed entry reservation (see below), but you will also have lovely weather and could see wildflowers in bloom or beautiful fall foliage.

In the winter, the park is especially gorgeous in the snow, and snowshoeing in RMNP is a fantastic experience.

But avalanche conditions may exist on hikes, and Trail Ridge Road is closed, so you won’t be able to drive from the east to west side of the park.

View of the Rocky Mountains early in the morning during one of the best Rocky Mountain National Park tours.

Do You Need a Reservation for Rocky Mountain National Park?

Rocky Mountain National Park is the most popular of the Colorado National Parks , so a timed entry system has been implemented during peak season.

From late May to mid-October, reservations are required to enter Rocky Mountain National Park. You can find out more details about timed entry and how to make reservations on the RMNP site here.

The timed entry system is a little tricky – if it sounds really overwhelming, then selecting a tour that handles this part of the planning for you is the way to go!

Just be sure to check what’s included in your tour. (Psst: we’ve added that info below, but be sure to double-check with the tour provider, since details can change.)

What is the Best Way to Tour Rocky Mountain National Park

You can definitely explore Rocky Mountain National Park on your own, but the best Rocky Mountain National Park tours are guided by local experts who can make sure you visit all the best spots in the park.

A private tour lets you customize your itinerary if you have specific places you want to see.

One of the biggest advantages of a tour is the increased chances to see wildlife. Tour guides generally know where the bigger herds of elk are and they have a trained eye to spot wild animals.

Of course, there are no guarantees, but if you’re looking for a wildlife expert, then a tour is a great option.

Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado; An Unforgettable Jeep Tour

  • , Beyond , Favorite Attractions

A woman sipping coffee outside

Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado is situated in the northern part of the state in Estes Park. Encompassing over 415-square miles, the glorious natural wonder is replete with breathtaking vistas, wildlife, wildflowers, and scenery beyond belief. This alpine region beckons visitors from around the world. Thousands visit the National Park annually to enjoy the bounty of activities and beauty this famous landmark offers. Our time was limited so in order to get the most from the experience we enlisted Green Jeep Tours and enjoyed a windblown, outdoor, up-close view on their Rocky Mountain Safari Tour.

Rocky Mountain Safari Tour

When I began my research, I knew we’d only be in Estes Park for the day so rather than spending time trying to take in the scenery on our own, I looked for a tour that would offer us the opportunity to view Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado and still leave time for experiencing the town of Estes Park. My research led me to Green Jeep Tours and their Rocky Mountain Safari Tour.

Located on Moraine Avenue in Estes Park, Green Jeep Tours offers custom jeep tours of Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. The most popular tour they offer, the Safari Tour, lasts slightly over three hours and gives a comprehensive overview of the park, the wildlife, and scenery. The jeep is the preeminent tour vehicle because it offers panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and a knowledgeable guide to provide facts and details along the road.

We checked-in at the Green Jeep office in Estes Park twenty minutes before our scheduled departure and waited in the lot behind the building to get our jeep assignment. Our guide, Pete, introduced himself and we climbed aboard and buckled up. The open-air jeep has a removable roof and sides providing the most unique encounter with the stunning region. 

The jeep holds up to eight people so for our tour my husband, son, and I shared the vehicle with a lovely family of four from Texas. My husband and son had the rear seats which if you’re a bit skittish, I don’t recommend. I was happy to be on the inside although, the pictures my husband was able to take from his vantage were superb.

We made our way through town and to Rocky Mountain National Park where our guide checked in at the gate. It was here we received a map of Rocky Mountain National Park as well as a pass (included with the tour price) for re-entry throughout the day. Once through the gate, we entered the mountaintop wonderland.

Touring Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado

Inside Rocky Mountain National Park, we traveled a short distance before making one of several stops. Our first point of interest was at a magnificent waterfall. In addition to the dazzling waterfall, our guide Pete pointed out the towering ponderosa pine trees as well as scars on the aspen trees which is a tell-tale sign elk have visited and rubbed their antlers on the trunks. Pete’s narration added to our experience and was extremely informative. 

Moving on, we journeyed along Old Fall River Road. The one-way dirt road is only open from early July through September and is a craggy trail of switchback turns and sensational mountain views. We saw many tourists making the trek in their own vehicles, but personally, I was happy to let the sturdy green jeep do the driving. This rugged road is not for the faint of heart.

Leaving the dirt road, we connected with the better-traveled and paved Trail Ridge Road. The renowned artery traveling through the park winds past the Alpine Visitor Center, climbing high above the treeline to heights of up to 12,000 feet above sea level. Along the way, we made multiple stops to explore, experience, and appreciate the views.

The Animals in Rocky Mountain National Park

Marmot sunning in Rocky Mountain National Park

One of the most awesome aspects of touring Rocky Mountain National Park is seeing the native wildlife. We saw longhorn sheep, elk, and deer. Because it was summer we had the added treat of viewing marmots high above the treeline sunning themselves on rocks. There were also adorable, tiny, but swift, pika scurrying about, moving too quickly for me to capture a picture. These moments were incredible. A pair of binoculars would have come in handy for viewing these splendid creatures in their habitat, so I vow next time, I’ll be better prepared.

Rocky Mountain National Park Weather

In a word, Rocky Mountain weather is extreme . Temperatures can change swiftly and are shaped by elevation, exposure, and slope. Temps are milder below 9,400 feet but at higher elevations, it’s possible to see snow in July. We did see snow on the ground at high elevations but the sun was shining. 

Green Jeep Tours run rain or shine year-round. With that in mind, you’re likely to experience multiple seasons during your tour regardless of the time of year. We were visiting in mid-July. When our tour began it was morning and still a little cool in Estes Park. The temperature rose to the mid-80s. However, when we reached high altitudes the temperature dipped significantly. I recommend wearing jeans or long pants, a jacket, a hat, and plenty of sunblock. 

In cooler months or during rainy weather, the temperature in the park can be cold. Also, keep in mind despite the removable sides and roof, it’s still a jeep and dress accordingly.

Tips For Taking a Jeep Tour of Rocky Mountain National Park

If you’re considering Green Jeep Tours, I suggest booking online or by phone prior to your visit. The Safari Tour is extremely popular and there’s always the possibility the tour will sell out. Another recommendation is to take a morning tour. The tour lasts between three and three and a half hours and departs promptly at 9:30. The potential of spotting wildlife is greater in the morning and it’s also much easier finding parking in Estes Park earlier in the day.

Additionally, when your morning tour finishes, you’re within walking distance of several popular Estes Park restaurants and eateries in time for lunch. You’ll also have the entire afternoon for exploring the charming downtown area and can even visit the iconic Stanley Hotel made famous by the films The Shining and Dumb and Dumber.

If you opt to stay in Estes Park, there’s a myriad of hotels, inns, and cabin rentals to choose from but keep in mind the summer season is busy. We stayed in Fort Collins which is approximately 45-miles away and an hour drive from Estes Park. By making Fort Collins our hub, we were able to enjoy a day trip to Estes Park and spend time visiting sites in Fort Collins including Colorado State University, the historic downtown area, and the popular New Belgium Brewing Company.

Parting Thoughts

Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado was dedicated to a National Park in 1915. Long before it became a National Park, it was a natural wonder to behold. From its rich history, its native wildlife, to its iconic snowcapped peaks, this is a one-of-a-kind destination worthy of investigating. I’m thrilled we were able to explore and encounter its beauty in such an extraordinary way. Our Green Jeep Tour allowed us to immerse ourselves and our senses in the mountains for a short time. Our takeaway was a memorable adventure, a feeling of wonder, and a defining moment in our family story. After all, isn’t it the mental pictures that last the longest?

The 8 Types of Rocky Mountain National Park Tours

Introduction – welcome to america’s alpine playground.

It’s one of the most beautiful areas of Colorado, along with being one of the most traveled.  4.5 million people tour Rocky Mountain National Park every year.  You would think with 415 square miles of land, explorers would disperse evenly.  However, whether you’re heading to the Mummy Range, Sprague Lake, Bear Lake, or up Longs Peak, you’ll be sharing your Rocky Mountains adventure with a multitude of other people.  Good news is there are ways to combat the crowds in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Take one of the many types of guided tours to make the most of sightseeing and venturing through this can’t-miss stop in the Colorado Rockies.

TOUR #1 – Estes Park Jeep Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

A popular activity in Colorado is making your way up one of the many 4×4 roads to catch some views not attainable in your low clearance sedan rental car.  Jeeps haul up these rocky paths with seemingly no effort and you’ll get to enjoy an action-packed day of sightseeing with your group.  What better way to explore the park than on this adventurous activity?

The Best Time to Take this Tour

To be honest, Jeep tours can be incredible any time of the year.  If you’re interested in watching the meadows of Rocky Mountain National Park bloom with wildflowers, spring is when you should go.  Want to bask in the Colorado sunshine?  Head out on a Jeep tour from Estes Park in July or August.  Take full advantage of a sea of yellow fall foliage in September and October, or venture among the snowy mountains throughout the winter.

Why It’s A Great Way to Spend Your Day

  • Gets you places you wouldn’t be able to explore otherwise.
  • Unique adventure through Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
  • View wildlife from the comfortable confines of a vehicle.
  • Tours are available year round so you’ll always have options for a Jeep excursion.

Jeep Tours around Rocky Mountain National Park

Green Jeep Tours

Estes Park based Green Jeep Tours has a plethora of excursions for you to pick from.  Catch a glimpse of some of the incredible wildlife in the park on their Ruttin’ Around Elk Viewing tour, cruise through the park then take a quick trek to a breathtaking spot on their Waterfall Hiking tour, or take a Brewery tour through Estes Park via Jeep (yes, it’s real and it’s already on our bucket list).

Rocky Mountain Rush

It doesn’t matter which time of year or time of day you’re wanting to explore the park; Rocky Mountain Rush has 4×4 tours throughout all four seasons and from sunrise past sunset.  Your day pass into Rocky Mountain National Park is included in the price, and your journey will take you to a handful of popular places in a quick amount of time.

Wildside 4×4 Tours

Informative and photography focused tours are available with Wildside 4×4 Tours , and they also are the only company within 100 miles allowed to truly take you on an off-road adventure.  Their snowy tours are equipped with hot chocolate for guests, and their excursions range from mild to wild so you can choose what kind of adventure you’re getting into in Rocky Mountain National Park.

TOUR #2 – Rocky Mountain National Park Photo Tours

One of the best aspects of Rocky Mountain National Park is how picturesque it is.  It’s almost like you’re entering a surreal world where the view you’re looking at could be an intricate wallpaper mural.  Guess what?  It’s real, and it’s better than you’ve ever imagined.  Many flock to the area to capture the parks beautiful scenes, but skip the research and let an experienced photo tour guide take you to the best places in Rocky Mountain National Park all in one day.

Which photo are you on the hunt for?

Wildflowers

Head out in very late May to early June to watch the mountains melt into a plethora of summer colors.  However, if you’re wanting to full fledged flower gardens, try July for these shots.

Catch sighting of some Rocky Mountain elk during their rut in September and October.  To view moose in their natural habitat, your chances are best on the west side of the park.  For those who are fans of marmots, you’ll have to make your way up above 10,000 feet in elevation.  Set your viewfinder on a rock or open areas up high.  Though there isn’t a very large black bear population in RMNP, you still may spot them from spring to fall.

Wildlife sighting – photo by Katie Schneider

As we all already know, there’s no shortage of views in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Whether you want lake shots, longer waterfall exposures, alpenglow mountain peaks, or the vast meadows throughout the park, there’s a picture around every corner.

  • Even if you’re an experienced photographer, guided tours will take you to places you’ve never considered.
  • Your guides know the area so well, you’ll get to explore multiple solid photo spots all in one day.
  • If you don’t know your way around a camera yet, you’ll learn plenty of tips and tricks along the way.

Combine your driving tour with a bit of sightseeing on your feet.  Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides strives to give you the best experience possible in Rocky Mountain National Park and educate you on how to replicate your observations through a photograph.

TOUR #3 – Backpacking Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

It’s the ultimate way to venture through the backcountry of Colorado, but for those who’ve never backpacked before it can be incredibly intimidating.  Maybe you aren’t positive on what to bring, where to go, what kind of food to take, where to sleep, what to be prepared for, etc.  Or, maybe you have dozens of backpacking trips under your belt already and you’re just not familiar with the area.  Either way, having an experienced guide by your side will bring your experience to the next level and you won’t have to stress about comfort or safety.

Rocky Mountain National Park Backpacking Guided Tours

Colorado nights are fairly cold year round, so even in the heart of summer you’ll want to pack a beanie and a high quality sleeping bag.  The temperature changes from tank top weather mid-afternoon to a brisk mid-40’s before dawn, so it’s really up to you.  Plenty spend their time backpacking in the Rocky Mountains for the majority of the year.  Our only advice is to be prepared for whatever season you’re venturing out on because any time of the year when there aren’t feet of snow covering the ground will have you on a grand adventure.

  • It’s not just a day, it’s a weekend packed of exploring Rocky Mountain National Park away from the crowds.
  • Having an experienced guide will make you feel safe and you won’t have to think twice about camping gear you left behind or what to cook for dinner.
  • Immerse yourself in the backcountry of Colorado – it’ll be an experience you’ll never forget.

AVA Guided Backpacking Excursions

AVA’s experienced guides have spent their fair share of time in many corners of the park, so your guide knows exactly where to go to escape the crowds .  They can point out the wide variety of flora along the way, and if you’re lucky hopefully you will spot some wildlife along the way.  Not to worry about the trail you’ll be venturing out on, when you book your trip your guide will choose the best one for that time of year.  They’ll also organize all of your meals, leaving you with one less (and very critical) thing to worry about when you pack for your adventure .

24 HOURS IN THE ROCKIES

3 days in the rockies.

Guided Backpacking Tours

TOUR #4 – Guided Hiking Tours in The Rocky Mountains

Only have a day to spend in the park?  Make the most of it with a guided hiking tour .  The knowledge your experienced guide will have on the surrounding area will set this adventure apart from any other you’ve been on.  Not only will you feel safe knowing that your guide practically knows Rocky Mountain National Park like the back of his hand, but you’ll learn loads of information about Colorado’s environment.

Summer and fall are the most popular times for a Rocky Mountain hiking tour.  Winter brings pounds of snow blanketing the mountain vistas and springs warmer weather hosts plenty of muddy trails due to the snow melting.  Summer mornings in Colorado can’t be beat.  Blue bird skies span miles around you and the sunshine warms the Rockies by mid morning.  More keen on cooler weather? Waltz through a sea of yellow Aspen trees come autumn.

  • You’ll get the experience of a lifetime having a guide on board so you can learn along the way.
  • You’ll feel safe knowing your trusty steed has walked this trail plenty of times prior.
  • Hiking in the famous Rocky Mountain National Park is one for the books.

Guided Hiking Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

AVA Guided Hiking Tours

Put your worries aside and let AVA’s guides lead you to the best places in the park.  Based out of Grand Lake, you’ll be on the west side of this Colorado hot spot and get to explore the less-seen corners of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Lunch is included in AVA’s guided hiking tours and you can expect more than just a cold-cut deli sandwich.  One thing you can be sure of when you book a guided hiking tour with AVA is that you’ll have an action-packed adventure and you’ll be talking about your day for months to come.

GUIDED DAY HIKE IN THE ROCKIES

Tour #5 – rocky mountain national park rock climbing tours.

Another popular hobby in Colorado is rock climbing, but it’s definitely not something you can do alone.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to try it but you don’t have the proper gear, knowledge, or a fellow climber to belay you.  Make your experience in Rocky Mountain National Park above par and book a guided rock climbing tour.  Not only will you be venturing out of your comfort zone with this intense sport, you’ll be doing it in one of the most breathtaking places in the state of Colorado.

Rock Climbing trips in Rocky Mountain National Park

Rock climbing is a strenuous activity and not an easy feat for the first timer.  If you’re just starting to get into the idea of this sport, it’s best to go when the weather is prime in Colorado.  Book a guided rock climbing trip for the morning in July or August – you’ll most likely get to enjoy blue skies and mild temperatures for a few hours before the afternoon showers and heat roll in.  Plus, you can venture around for the rest of the day.

  • Rock climbing is a taxing hobby and definitely something to feel accomplished about after completing.
  • Having a climbing guide alongside you will make a world of difference, especially for beginners.
  • For the experienced climbers, your guides know the area like the back of their hands and can direct you towards those more difficult crags.

Learn all aspects of rock climbing in the beautiful RMNP.

Kent Mountain Adventure Center

It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or your hundredth time on the rock face, Kent Mountain Adventure Center customizes your adventure based on your group and experience levels.  Based out of Estes Park, you can try rock climbing during the summer and ice climbing come winter time on their 10-acre property nestled right next to the park.

Make your way up some of the most famous rock structures in world including Longs Peak, Sharktooth, and Spearheard with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides .  They are one of the six companies that is allowed to direct commercial climbing trips within the parks walls.

TOUR #6 – Longs Peak Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

This is one of the first mountains you’ll be able to spot in the front range of Colorado.  It’s one of the states 50+ 14ers and the only 14,000+ foot peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Routes to summit Longs Peak vary from mild to extreme but are sought after due to the exclusivity and uniqueness of this mountain.  If you’re exploring Rocky Mountain National Park already, you might as well knock a 14er off your list while you’re at it.

Catch incredible views at the top of a 14er in Colorado

Not to worry, if you’re headed out on a guided tour they wouldn’t venture up Longs Peak if the weather wasn’t cooperating or conditions higher in elevation were bad.  Try for middle of summer and closer to fall.  Be prepared to wake up bright and early (seriously, 3:00 AM is a good time to set out for this one) and to be chilly in the morning and as you close in on the summit.

  • Climbing a 14,000+ foot peak is scary, especially one as difficult as this one .  For safety measures, having a guide lead the way is a fantastic idea for anyone unfamiliar with high elevation mountaineering.
  • Stand at 14,259 feet above sea level and overlook the breathtaking Rocky Mountains of Colorado
  • Perhaps one of the most challenging hobbies in Colorado is climbing a 14er, so the accomplishment you’ll feel after Longs Peak will be an ultimate high.

Longs Peak is a great bucket list item and something you can check off with these guided tours.

Venture out with the Apex Ex experienced climbers and you can choose to climb a few pitches over the course of a day or try a two-day adventure to the summit of Longs Peak.  Apex Ex welcomes all levels of climbers from beginners to advanced and with various types of climbs, everyone is sure to find an excursion perfect for them.

American Alpine Institute

This company has been mountaineering for over 40 years, so you know you’re in good hands if you book a trip with them.  Head out on a group summit climb, schedule a private lesson with an experienced guide, or try out a group instructional course all with the American Alpine Institute on Longs Peak.

Kirks Mountain Adventures

Overnight trips with Kirks Mountain Adventures include everything you need for your excursion such as a backpack, food, transportation, and a knowledgeable guide.  Ready for the ultimate day in Rocky Mountain National Park?  This companies guided day trip to summit Longs Peak sets off at 2 A.M. and includes meals.  You’ll get to experience the sunrise while breathing in the crisp mountain air along your trek.

TOUR #7 – Rocky Mountain National Park Tours from Denver

Venture to Rocky Mountain National Park from the Mile High City of Denver

Staying in Denver and hoping to pass up on the traffic in the national park?  Take off from the Mile High City and spend the entire day venturing through Colorado’s greatest areas, accompanied by an experienced tour guide to point out everything that matters and answer all the questions you have about the area.  At the end of the day, you’ll be right back in Denver with a brain full of new facts about Colorado and a bit of energy left from not having to navigate the Rocky Mountain roads yourself.

Anytime of year.  You’ll get to enjoy the sights from the comfort of a bus or vehicle, so regulating temperature in there isn’t out of question.  However, weekends and holidays throughout the summer will create plenty of crowds in the park and the roads can get dicey come winter time.  Try one of these tours during a weekday in the spring, summer, or fall.

  • You’ll skip trying to figure out traffic through Denver followed by the windy roads through the mountains and be able to keep your eyes out the window and not on the road the entire drive.
  • Your starting point is Denver and so is where you’ll be dropped off at the end of the day, so you’ll get a mountain adventure without the hassle.
  • Sit back, relax, and become awestruck at the beauty of Colorado.

Gaze at the mountain vistas right outside your window.

Colorado Sightseer

Colorado Sightseer is based out of the heart of Denver and offers options for sightseeing all across the front range to the Continental Divide.  Their tours include all entry fees to the different parks and areas you’ll be visiting, plus you’ll get to pack your day full of amazing views.

Gray Line Tours

You’ll cross the Continental Divide, stop for plenty of photo opportunities, and learn from your tour guide on Gray Line ’s adventures through Rocky Mountain National Park.  You’ll start out at Denver’s Union Station on their full day tour.

TOUR #8 – Driving Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

If you’re the type that insists on being your own captain, not to worry – there are plenty of people who enjoy forging their own path.  There are a multitude of incredible roads that wind their way through Rocky Mountain National Park and as long you pack the car with snacks, water, and a camera, you’re set for your day of exploring.  The best part about technology nowadays is there is an app that exists to help you navigate your way through the park.  Before you set off on your day of adventure, download GyPSy Guide to have some help along the way.

Explore RMNP solo on these great roads.

Rocky Mountain National Park is one you can’t miss when visiting the Centennial State.  Book a guided tour in this beauty to make the most of your time while you’re here.  AVA’s Guided Hiking and Backpacking trips are a great option for those who fancy venturing on their own two feet.

With a knowledgeable guide on whichever activity you choose, you’ll fully get to experience Rocky Mountain National Park without the stress or worry of getting lost, safety from wildlife, or having to push your way through a sea of people to catch that notorious view.  Disconnect for a little while, learn about Colorado’s incredible environment, and book your guided trip in Rocky Mountain National Park today.
