Aspen’s Top 10 Family Activities this Summer.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Here comes summer, and Aspen is the place to be for family fun in the great outdoors.
Aspen summer activities

1. Go white water rafting.

Choose a half-day trip that’s a gentle glide down the Roaring Fork River with plenty of time to take in the stunning scenery, or one that’s adrenaline-charged as you negotiate Class IV rapids and “boulder gardens.” Whichever you choose, experienced guides make the trip safe and fun.

2. Ride downhill on a bicycle.

A bike tour is an ideal family activity. Whether you choose the paved road tour down from the Maroon Bells, or the smooth dirt track that follows the Roaring Fork River, you’ll have a chance to stop and learn about the wildlife and flora and fauna along the way.

3. Tour the backcountry in a 4-wheel drive.

Rugged but comfortable off-road vehicles charge canyons, climb foothills and traverse streams allowing amazing access to alpine forests and wildflower-carpeted high alpine meadows. Guides and drivers know just where to stop to give you that perfect photo opportunity.

4. Fly fish on the river.

Cast your rod on the Roaring Fork or Frying Pan River featuring some of the finest wild trout fishing in Western Colorado. Both rivers are designated Gold Metal Rivers by the Colorado Department of Wildlife to signify outstanding trout fisheries. Anglers enjoy spectacular vistas of mountains and canyons.

5. Hike wilderness trails.

From novice to intermediate half-day hikes of 3-4 miles to full day hikes over challenging terrain for expert hikers, there’s something for everyone on Aspen’s wilderness trails. Along the way, enjoy the pristine alpine landscape and learn about the ecology, geology and natural history of the region from knowledgeable guides.

6. Ride a horse through beautiful country.

The original settlers in this area came on horseback so, from the saddle of your experienced packhorse, you get a perspective on what they saw so long ago. Enjoy riding through aspen groves and pine forests, accessing remote lakes and streams, and viewing scenery that will take your breath away.

7. Climb a mountainside.

Rock climbing classes are available for novice to advanced climbers. All classes teach basic skills, including knots, belaying, and movement on rock. Full and half day classes are available with AMGA certified guides. All safety equipment such as: harnesses, helmets, climbing shoes, ropes, and anchors are included.

8. Attend an open-air concert.

Day and night, music takes center stage during the summer months. Whether you enjoy bluegrass, folk, rock, or classical, there’s something for every musical taste. Pick your genre, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy music in the great outdoors, an Aspen summer tradition.

9. Take a gondola ride up Aspen Mountain.

The Silver Queen Gondola, the longest single-stage gondola in the world, rises from Aspen town to the summit of Aspen Mountain, a 3,267 vertical rise. At the 11,212-foot summit, revel in the views, dine on the Sundeck, jump on the climbing wall or Eurobungy trampoline, or take a free, guided nature walk.

10. Soar over mountain peaks in a hot air balloon.

Set off early in the morning when the air is brisk. During the flight, you’ll see amazing views from about 1,500 feet above the Colorado landscape. A champagne brunch ton landing tops it off. This is an exhilarating adventure you’ll never forget.
