Driving: Summer in Estes Park is hard to beat. Flowers are in bloom while the mountains still try to hang on to the snow. Spending your time on a driving tour allows you to view so many wonderful things. While summer day temperatures don’t usually get too high, it feels very warm so driving tours are ideal for any time of the day. Summer driving tours can be any length of time. Because we tour by car, we can start and end whenever you like. All trips include a stop at the historic Stanley Hotel. Visiting areas in and around Rocky Mountain Park give you a true appreciation for the entire area.
Hiking: As with all hikes, it is recommended we start early so we can finish early. Yes, it will be chilly when we start, but it is important to get down from the trails before it gets too hot or a summer storm moves in unexpectedly. My hiking tours are typically shorter in duration and not quite as vigorous so they are great for all ages.
Combo: Spending a little time in the car and a little time exploring on foot is always a favorite. We can see and experience so much with this type of tour. Your tour can include as much or as little “hiking” as you like. Some want to stop and stroll in many places and some want to drive less and hike more…it’s all up to you. These tours can be any length and can start and stop based on your schedule. If you are looking for more of a hiking experience, I do suggest we start earlier than later.
Fishing: Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park can be a fisherman’s haven. It can be busy between May and September so I always suggest we hit the waters early. Licenses are required for those over 16, but can be purchased easily at a number of places. Whether you are a fly fisherman, a bait fisherman, or a spin caster, I can help with equipment and help you find the ideal spot to drop a line.
