Colorado

Colorado offers dramatic landscapes of natural beauty - from the arid desert of the Colorado Plateau to the snow-covered Rocky Mountains offering a year-round destination for hikers, climbers, rafters, mountain bikers, horseback riders and skiers.

Highlights of this diverse state are:

  • Denver: with its vibrant downtown of new museums and the State Capitol, to the LoDo area of trendy restaurants and brew-pubs.

  • Rocky Mountain National Park: with its alpine lakes, forests and meadows and soaring mountains.

  • Aspen: the historic resort mountain town, now a world-class skiing as well as summer destination in the Rocky Mountains.

  • Vail: a high-end destination with its chalet-style restaurants, shops and hotels. Vail welcomes skiers in winter and hikers in the summer months.

  • Durango-Silverton-Ouray-Telluride: in southern Colorado these historic mining towns have the feel of the Old West and offer high mountain jeeping, skiing, and steam train rides while surrounded by arguably the most beautiful scenery in the state.
