Join an incredible day tour of Rocky Mountain National Park to visit the Continental Divide, the world's largest mountain barrier and the backbone of North America. This journey takes you to historic towns and beautiful trails, where you can watch the wildlife and experience the great outdoors.

You begin with a drive out from Denver, stopping at the small mountain town of Estes Park for a visit to the Stanley Hotel, famous as the inspiration for Stephen King's The Shining. Next, head into Rocky Mountain National Park to surround yourself with the incredible alpine and subalpine vistas, along with wildlife, including elk, deer, moose, black bears, marmots, hawks, eagles, and more.

Stop at many sightseeing spots during the tour for views of snowcapped peaks, meadows, and fantastic views of the valley. Weather permitting, you can visit Bear Lake, a beautiful alpine lake nestled at the foot of massive mountains, and follow Trail Ridge road all the way to its highest elevation of 12,183 feet (3,713 m).

On your way back, set out on a hike chosen by your guide to immerse yourself in the beautiful outdoors and enjoy the solitude of this magnificent place. If time permits, you take a different route for your return to Denver, passing through towns such as Nederland that hold reminders of Colorado's rich mining history.
