DEPARTURES FROM ASPEN

Departing from Glenwood Springs or Snowmass Village?  All Aspen excursions are available at the same rate.

Half Day Excursions

All Half Day Rates from Aspen

Any of the Half Day tours departing from Aspen can be combined for a Full Day excursion.  However…it would be very challenging to do both the Crater Lake hike at the Maroon Bells and the Hanging Lake hike in Glenwood Canyon on the same day.  Also, since it can be especially nice to take a soak after a day of more strenuous activities, we especially recommend combining any of these destinations with an afternoon stop at Glenwood Hot Springs.

Full Day Excursions

All Full Day Rates from Aspen

Full Day tours can be constructed by combining two Half Day Excursions, but there are too many potential combinations to list them all.  The following destinations require a full day to be really appreciated.  

#2 • Vail – Your Custom Program

You can create your own excursion to Vail from Aspen or Glenwood Springs.  Use the events calendar to search for one-time events – anything and everything from a concert by a favorite artist to a fly fishing tournament.  Permanent attractions range from shopping to a day of skiing – but whatever the reason – Colorado Scenic Tour will be happy to take you there.

Half Day – Mid-October to Late May (Ashcroft and Stallard House only)

Season: Year Round

The ghost town of Independence and the Continental Divide are not accessible by road during the winter, so this becomes an excursion to Ashcroft, Stallard House, and Holden/Marolt Mining Museum between October and May (See below).  Ashcroft may require snowshoes or cross country skis to visit in the winter, but is close enough to the road that neither is likely.  This location is also home to the Ashcroft Ski Touring center, so winter gear can be rented onsite and a visit to the Pine Creek Cookhouse by sleigh is probably an automatic addition.

This is a full day excursion regardless of whether you choose to hike the trail, enjoy the activities at Piney River Ranch, or both.  However, if you do one but not the other, we will probably have time to visit downtown Vail in the afternoon.

Make your arrangements directly with Piney River Ranch at Piney Lake for horseback rides, fishing (lessons available), and paddle board or canoe trips.

We have a slightly different approach to the Leadville area, which is easily accessible from both Aspen and Vail during Spring, Summer and Fall, but only from Vail in the Winter.  Visitors from the Aspen side get the bonus of crossing the continental divide over Independence Pass (Elevation: 12,095 ft.), but will have slightly less time for other activities.  Regardless of your starting point, when you choose this tour, you get to pick any three options from our list found on the To Leadville page.
