Day 3

Denver to Gateway

Collect your car and start today’s magnificent journey travelling westward out of the city, toward the snow-capped peaks before you. The road rises before you and forests and mountains surround the car as you travel through North America’s largest mountain range. After a few hours the land begins to drop and you will recognise the wild west terrain of the movies with red rock features replacing the fir tree forests. Arrive into the town of Gateway and discover the nearby Gateway Canyons Resort.

Days 4-6

Gateway Canyons Resort

With so much to see and do in the local area you have to make sure at least one day is spent enjoying this beautiful resort. Looking out to the buttes and mesas of the surrounding countryside, enjoy a relaxing day in the desert sun lounging beside the resort’s lagoon-like pool. The more active will want to take advantage of the array of activities on offer like off-road Jeep tours, mountain biking and guided or self-guided hikes. Alternatively enjoy a leisurely float down the adjacent Delores River. The resort also boasts its own stables, allowing guests of all abilities to enjoy a truly wild west experience on horseback. There is a fantastic choice of dining at the resort from al fresco dining beside the pool to fine dining at Entrada. For a unique experience head to Duesey’s Diner where BBQ food is served from a retro food truck. On another day jump in the car for the scenic 2.5 hour drive into Utah, to Arches National Park. This incredible landscape boasts over 2,000 stone arches and plenty of trails from which to discover them. Alternatively drive the Unaweep/Tabeguache Scenic Byway through the incredible desert scenery.

Day 7

Gateway to Aspen-Snowmass

Depending how early you set off there are plenty of routes to choose from taking you back into the Rocky Mountains. Today’s journey ventures right into the heart of the region and the world-renowned resort towns of Aspen and Snowmass. Most famous for legendary winter skiing, Aspen-Snowmass is glorious in the summer sunshine with wild flowers meadows, fresh air and a plethora of outdoor activities. The Viceroy Snowmass offers a modern yet mountain-inspired stay with gorgeous facilities, innovative dining and opulent bedrooms.

Days 8-9

Viceroy Snowmass
