The Rockies Holidays

Witness the immense size of the American West. Spanning several states, The Rockies – also known as The Rocky Mountains – offer breath-taking scenery, from dramatic wilderness to alpine lakes. 

The Rocky Mountains stretch 3,000 miles from British Columbia and Alberta in Canada through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and down to New Mexico in the U.S.A. Here you can explore wild west landscapes and take part in activities such as horse riding, fishing and driving cattle on a ranching holiday; and visit national memorials such as Mount Rushmore. 

Embark on an adventure through the region's incredible national parks. View bubbling mudpots and spurting geysers in Yellowstone National Park; shimmering glaciers and crystal clear lakes in Glacier National Park; and towering sand dunes or snow-capped peaks in Colorado. These incredible landscapes are all enhanced by the abundant wildlife on show, from the mighty bison, bear, moose and elk to wolf, coyote, bobcat, bighorn sheep and mountain goat.

To make the most of your holiday to the Rockies, plan your time and know what you want to tick off your wish list. There is so much to see and do you really are spoilt for choice. Hire a car or motorhome and hit the open road, taking in the views as you wind your way through mountain passes, stopping off whenever you want to breathe deep and capture your memories with a fantastic photo.

    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.
