At the end of the day enjoy a soak in the soothing waters of Colorado's famous hot springs and spas and have ample opportunity throughout the trip for hiking, fishing, white water rafting, shopping or whatever your heart desires.

These five days take you through some of the wildest most magnificent landscape in the Western Hemisphere. Ride over a dozen mountain passes including the most scenic in Colorado. Enjoy hiking, shopping, and visiting with the locals. Ride the colorful rim rock plateau of the Colorado National Monument. Stop in Ridgway located in the same area where the western movie 'True Grit' starring John Wayne was filmed. ("Bold talk for a one-eyed fat man.") Don't be surprised when we come around a curve and see colorful hot air balloons soaring above. Ride through Aspen for a chance to spot some of Hollywood's glitterati. You will ride along rivers of white water, see incredible mountain views, amazing relics of Colorado's mining history, and travel through national forests and canyons cut into arid desert terrain. The ride offers many hidden out of the way places, roads from a mere mile high (1.6 kilometers) to over 12,000 feet (3657 meters), and showcases the varied and unforgettable beauty of Colorado.
