Not everyone can navigate the wilderness like a pro, so we have some on hand, ready to help! Rely on our experts to show you the best our five mountain towns have to offer. Check out one of our guided tours to plan a grand Rocky Mountain adventure, and let us worry about the details.
Hunting & Fishing Guided Tours
Grand County's local sportsmen can find the best spots to hunt and fish in Grand County with guided excursions for trophy fishing and hunting game.
One of our favorite local fishing expert shops is Mo Henry's Trout Shop in Winter Park. On top of offering some top-quality fishing equipment, bait and rentals for fly fishing and lake fishing, , the owner is a local guide. Visit this shop for a full- or half-day float trip on either public or private waters. Want to come back on your own in the future? They also offer lessons, so you can learn how to reel in the big one on your own!
Looking for something a little more private? Bull Basin Guides & Outfitters, LLC focuses their fly and lake fishing trips on one of three private waters to ensure a great experience for all participants. Fish for rainbows, German browns, cutthroat, or brook trout with some of the finest sportsmen around!
Located in the middle of Kremmling, Colorado, Bull Basin is also in a pristine location to be a hunting guide. Continuing their passion for making the experience above and beyond expectations for participants, they offer hunting tours on private land. Hunt for big game with the pros including deer, elk, antelope, bears, or even mountain lions.
More concerned with the game, and not necessarily the land you hunt? Badlands Outfitting specializes in leading fair chase hunts for mountain lions in Kremmling, Colorado on both public and private lands. They can also help with elk or mule deer hunting tours, if that's what the group prefers!
Located outside of Kremmling to the north, Bear Mountain Outfitters offers a fully guided hunting experience on over 10,000 acres of private land on the Continental Divide with world class elk, deer, antelope and more! Hunts begin in the fall with archery season, and continue through November to the end of rifle season. Email Bear Mountain Outfitters or call 970-724-9651 to plan your adventure.
Go full-western and try a guided hunting tour on horseback with Strawberry Creek Outfitters in Tabernash, Colorado. Located south of Rocky Mountain National Park and Lake Granby, and just north of Winter Park Ski Resort, this area of Arapaho National Forest is great for hunting, but since no motorized vehicles are allowed, visitors get to step back in time and hunt on horseback.
Snowmobile, ATV & Jeep Guided Tours
Take a guided snowmobile tour of the Continental Divide with Grand Adventures or a jeep tour to the summit of one of our many mountain ranges. Whether you ride with Timberline Tours, Mile Hi Rafting & ATV Tours, or another area outfitter, you're sure to have some high-thrill fun with some of the most jaw-dropping views in the Rockies.
Rafting & Kayaking Guided Tours
Some of Grand County's most incredible recreational activities are rafting and kayaking on the Colorado River. Kremmling, Colorado offers some of the best rafting and kayaking through Gore Canyon, complete with rafting through the new whitewater recreational park, Gore Canyon Whitewater Park. Let our guides show you a safe and wonderful time on the mighty Colorado River!
Liquid Descent takes you through the Gore Canyon, where you can keep a lookout for bighorn sheep, bald eagles, and even the occasional bear in the surrounding wilderness. Or go with AVA's Colorado Rafting, where you can choose between mild floats to Class V rapids on five rivers in Colorado, some within an hour's drive of Kremmling in Grand County, Colorado. Mad Adventures in Kremmling also offers incredible tours of the Upper Colorado River through classic Rocky Mountain wilderness.
If you've seen Gore Canyon and want a different perspective from some of Grand County's waterways, try out Mountain Paddlers in Grand Lake or Red Tail Rafting in Fraser. Mountain Paddlers allows for a calm kayaking tour of Colorado's largest natural lake, Grand Lake, and its neighboring Shadow Mountain Lake, and Red Tail Rafting tours you through Class I, II, and III whitewater rapids on the Colorado River.
Hot Air Balloon Tours
What's more special than watching the entire town of Winter Park and the Fraser Valley waking up from high above in the sky? Not a lot. Every morning at sunrise, Grand Adventures Balloon Tours offers tours that show off the true beauty of the area while soaring above the tree tops. Watch the sun come up while taking in beautiful views of nearby Rocky Mountain National Park, Winter Park and more. It doesn't get much more relaxing or serene than this.
