Hiking Adventure in Rocky Mountain National Park from Denver
Had a wonderful time hiking in the Rockies with my tour guide Kyle! He educated our group with tons of interesting facts about the places we visited and the wildlife we saw. We all learned so much and received so many great restaurant recs as well! Also enjoyed hearing about the personal backpacking and camping stories he shared. Would definitely recommend this experience to friends or anyone looking to experience a moderate guided hike in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park Tour from Denver
We had a wonderful day in Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. Alex was a fun, friendly, and knowledgable guide and he was able to adjust our itinerary when the park was very crowded on our Saturday visit. He made sure to give us some time in Estes Park and show us a few great sights in the National Park.

I loved this tour! Our guide Aaron was brilliant, knowledgeable about the Park and its ecosystem, and wanted to ensure we had the best experience possible (and was a great photographer!). The tour gives you plenty of time to see the Park and enjoy the unique environment, while also stopping in local areas for souvenir shopping if you wish. I had a great time and I’m really glad I chose to book this tour, thank you!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Even summer’s mild temperatures drop in the evenings, so sweaters are worn year-round.

  • Wheelchair-accessible areas can be found throughout the park.

  • Inside the park there are two visitor centers: Fall River and Alpine.

  • Outside the park, visitor centers are located at Beaver Meadows, Kawuneeche, and Lily Lake.

When to Get There

Alpine wildflowers fill the valleys in spring, and cross-country skiers hit the slopes here in winter. Summer is the most popular time to visit—and thus the most crowded—but all seasons offer outdoor activities and access to unbridled nature.
