  • What You Can Expect

    Meet the guide and fellow travelers in downtown Denver. Along the scenic drive, pass the outdoor-loving, college town of Boulder, situated at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Follow the road out of Lyons, through St. Vrain Canyon and down into the town of Estes Park. Pass the historic Stanley Hotel, made famous for it’s starring role in the movie 'the Shining.'

    While entering Rocky Mountain National Park, experience the wonders that inspired early explorers to push for the protection of this amazing landscape. Catch a view of Long’s Peak, the park’s highest, soaring into the sky at 14,259 feet and the glacial-carved valleys, filled with Aspen and pine trees. The guide will lead the way to the best viewpoints, with plenty of time to hop out of the van and explore.

    Summer: The summer tour begins after memorial weekend and ends mid October. Throughout the summer the tour will take you up trail ridge road to 13'000 feet. In the winter the high alpine road is closed and more time will be spent discovering the valley and its crystal clear alpine lakes. 

    All entrance and National Park fees are included and a sandwich for lunch is provided.

Jorge A


The experience to see and feel the Rocky Mountains was excellent and David is an outstanding guide. The transportation, timing, and route were very well chosen. Very recommendable trip!

What a wonderful way to spend the day! Our tour guide, Michelle, was very knowledgable about the area. After picking up sandwiches in Lyons which were delicious, we visited several scenic points and went up as high as we could on the trail road. As it was a holiday weekend, the park was crowded but Michelle was great at finding us parking spots and beautiful photo opportunities. We learned a lot about the history and topography of the area and just had a great day. I was so thankful I chose to go on a tour instead of DIY and rent a car. It was a stress free, beautiful day and I highly recommend Aspire tours and Michelle in particular!
