Vail to Boulder via Rocky Mountain National Park

Day 6

Drive through the alpine wonderland of Rocky Mountain National Park

Nowhere else in the US can you see such a great expanse of alpine country with such ease as within the 415 square miles of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. In the words of award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns: “The glory of Rocky Mountain National Park is that you can pull over at a scenic view and have a spectacular experience, and be 10 feet from your car... It feels like you’re on top of the world.” See what he means as you drive through the park en route from Vail to Boulder, and view the Continental Divide, splitting North America with a serpentine line and separating streamflows east from west.

Hot Air Ballooning (additional cost)

Day 7

Optional hot air balloon in Boulder

In Boulder you'll have an opportunity to view Colorado's majestic Rocky Mountains and the Flatirons from a particularly exhilarating vantage point, at a particularly exciting time – dawn – aboard a hot air balloon (optional, at additional cost per person); the amazing sunrise ride includes views of farmland and endless prairies stretching out below. It's an experience you won't forget anytime soon!

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Before You Go


Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.
