The Rockies holidays are tailormade for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, and those in search of a memorable break away from the daily routines of city life. Marvel at some of Mother Nature’s finest creations and breathe in that refreshing mountain air. There is no denying that The Rockies holidays have a spot on every traveller’s bucket list. 

Aside from the multitude of magnificent national parks that The Rocky Mountains region is so famous for, one of the most notable attractions to add to your itinerary is the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. It can be found in the Black Hills region of South Dakota and is truly a sight to behold. 

The Rockies holidays: national parks galore 

There are three main national parks in The Rockies. These are the Rocky Mountain National Park, Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. While each one is as stunning as the other, they all feature their own unique natural wonders. 

The Rocky Mountain National Park is where you will find the most spectacular mountain vistas. Trail Ridge Road is a special highlight which crests at over 12,000 feet and promises numerous enthralling views of the rolling terrains below. Glacier National Park is home to abundant pine forests, alpine meadows, mammoth glaciers and sparkling lakes. Yellowstone National Park is home to a vast array of hydrothermal and geologic wonders, as well as a supervolcano.

  • Savour the alpine vistas of Trail Ridge Road at the Rocky Mountain National Park
  • See bears, beavers, coyotes, mountain lions, eagles, owls and more
  • Hike through the pristine trails of Glacier National Park

Abundant Wildlife

The Rocky Mountains are an important habitat for many animals, including elk, deer, mountain goat and hundreds of bird species, but it's the big ones; black bears, bison and moose that are the draw for wildlife lovers. Viewing of these larger animals are what's on everyone's wish list and even more so is capturing the moment on camera. You may want to bring along one with a zoom lens for a more quality photo and the best viewing times are at dawn and dusk when wildlife is more active. Stay quiet and still so you can witness the animals going about their day to day and remember; don't get too close, they are animals after all.

Grand Teton National Park

Exploring National Parks

Spanning more than 3000 miles, The Rockies hosts several incredible National Parks, including America's very first National Park; Yellowstone. Watch famous Old Faithful erupt and marvel at the geological activity at Mammoth Hot Springs.

Macey, Destination Specialist

“As the Rockies cover more than one state, a popular mistake is trying to see everything in one holiday. Split the Rockies into two or even three holidays to make sure you can see the true extent of the beauty on offer.”

Rocky Mountain Oysters

Rocky Mountain Oysters are not exactly what their name suggests. In fact, they are deep-fried bull, bison or sheep testicles. The testicles are most commonly coated in flour and seasoned with salt and pepper before being pounded flat and cooked. They are served crisp and fried to golden perfection, often with a tasty cocktail dipping sauce on the side.
