This five-day tour takes you through some of the most breathtaking scenery Colorado has to offer. You will leave our base in the foothills and skirt the plains before heading north to ride the exquisite twistys on the Peak-to-Peak highway. Experience the breathtaking world of Rocky Mountain National Park, (one of the places in the best selling travel book, ("1,000 Places to See Before you Die") and ride over the world's highest continuous paved highway (12,183 feet, 3,713 meters.) View the glaciers, snowfields and the wildlife that inhabit this unique alpine environment. You'll ride through Aspen, one of the world's most fabled resorts. (Swimming pools, movie stars.) You'll stay in an historic hotel in the mining town of Leadville, America's Cloud City, and have an opportunity to soak in the world's largest hot springs pool, considered sacred healing waters by the Ute Indians. More twisty roads, high mountain passes, a ride through the haunting beauty of South Park and a visit to a restored 1880's town and you will head home with your saddlebags packed full of lasting memories.
