Colorado Ranches Holidays

Holidays in Colorado Ranches

Peak Ranch Season: Mid May to Mid October

Colorado’s scenery is impressive and the pristine wilderness is inspiring. The dramatic canyons and red rock formations are over shadowed by some of the country’s tallest mountains. Spring flowers, gushing rivers and vast plains collide with modern and historic architecture of former gold-mining towns and the dazzling Denver downtown area.

The summers are long, warm and sunny in Colorado and this time of year in the state lends itself to horse riding, hiking and cycling in the mountains or a trip on the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge team Railway to the heart of the San Juan Mountain range.

White Water Rafting

Many ranches in Colorado will offer white water excursions which is a great activity for the adventurous looking to do something truly different. There is rafting available for all ages and abilities, older children and adults can enjoy the rapids whilst younger children can sail down gentler rivers. All of these tours are under professional supervision with the high service you come to expect from the ranches and although not always included with the ranch price it is well worth spending a day giving this a go.

White water rafting day excursions are available at most of the Colorado ranches.  If you are keen to do some rafting on your ranch holiday, we recommend Black Mountain Ranch, Bar Lazy J Ranch, Elk Mountain Ranch, Cherokee Park Ranch and Zapata Ranch.   There are also some multiple day rafting tours that you can add on to your ranch holiday in Colorado.
