Colorado Mountain Tours
Some of the different touring activities besides ziplining include Colorado mountain bike tours, river rafting adventures on one of the hundreds of roaring rivers in our state, riding one of the chairlifts in the Vail valley or Summit County area, or taking a hike up one of our mountain trails.
Primary Colorado Mountain RangesThere’s simply no way to show you around all of the majestic mountains and mountain ranges in our state. Listed among the major mountain ranges are: Sawatch Range, the Sangre De Cristo mountains, the San Juan mountain range, Mosquito, Front Range and Park Range. If you’re touring in the central Colorado region and looking for some adventurous activities without getting yourself all wet and dirty and totally exhausted while staying in a safe setting, a zip line tour has got to be one of the first types of tours on your list of things to do in Colorado.

Zip Line Tours in ColoradoZip Line tours generally start running or operating in the early springtime and go into late fall or early winter. People that are taking Colorado mountain vacations in the immediate area surrounding Vail are attracted to a local tour operator that has been providing zip line tours for over six years to all different types of groups and demographics. A zip line tour allows you to soar way above the ground and actually feel like you’re flying across the treetops. People taking the tour start by attaching a carabineer harness to a cable on one end while connecting to your gear on your end. The zip line course is strung between two different mountain range outcroppings or cliffs, or is strung between trees other solid objects in the forest. Once you start zipping down the course you’ll literally fly from off the platform to the other end stopping at a tree or the zipline platform on the other end of the course.
Participants in this type of Colorado mountain tour activity can fly from around 80 ft of the ground all the way to above 100’ or more above the valley floor. Zip line tours can vary from being in mountainous regions to soaring above rainforests or jungles. If you’re trying a Rocky Mountain zip line tour you’re likely to also get a jeep ride to the event which can be a great time in itself.
