Reaching north into Canada and south as far as New Mexico, the Rocky Mountains are strewn with national parks, including Yellowstone, Glacier and Bryce Canyon. Affectionately known as the Rockies, here you can feel the heat from simmering mud pots and the cold of glacial lakes, hear the sounds of wildlife, such as bears and wolves, and the screech of eagles as they swoop overhead. There are numerous walking trails, and licensed riding stables that provide tours on horseback. You may prefer to enjoy a day quietly fishing in one of the many lakes or discovering the art of cattle driving on a ranch. Visit Mount Rushmore, where sculpted heads of past presidents are carved into the rock, and marvel at snow-capped peaks in Colorado. 

Our escorted tours of the Rockies encompass incredible and varied scenery, some not out of place in a wild west film. Our National Parks Explorer will show you awesome vistas at the mighty Grand Canyon, the sandstone rock formations of Arches National Park and the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon. Our Yellowstone Wildlife Trails Tour focuses on Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. Here you can join a wolf tracking tour, witness spurting geysers, and gaze at the rainbow colours of the ten-storey deep Grand Prismatic Spring. Our Rocky Mountain Frontiers Tour includes Mount Rushmore, Bighorn’s pine forests, Canyonlands and Arches National Park. 

Alternatively, take an amazing, self guided round trip from Denver across the Rockies on our American Grandeurs tour.

"I found ranching a lot of fun. I recommend it to anyone who’s happy to get on a horse.”

“I was rapt by the hoodoos (thin spires of eroded rock that protrude from the bottom of a dry drainage basin) at Bryce Canyon. They look like a city of alien skyscrapers.”

“My recommendation for the Rockies would be to take an escorted tour. It’s time efficient and packs in loads of interesting stuff.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What clothing should I wear in the Rockies?

Even in summer time you will need light but sturdy walking boots, layers and a fleece for high altitudes and a waterproof jacket in case of thunderstorms. Don’t forget sun cream, mosquito repellent, binoculars, a map, and a hat as well as snacks, water and a mini first aid kit with plasters.

What’s the best way to get around the Rockies?

There are 355 miles of hiking trails, but also wonderful scenic drives. Keen horse riders might want to consider booking with one of the stables licensed to ride in the national park. 

Is the wildlife in the Rockies dangerous?

Wild animals try their hardest not to disturb us and visitors should return the favour. If you walk in groups and keep children close you will be one of the millions of visitors who stay safe in the Rockies every year.
