Great Adventures in Colorado

If you go to Colorado , you'll find a lot of different ways to play in the snow: you can ski, do some snowboarding or simply walk in snow. Colorado is a wonderful place to unplug, relax and do nothing al all. It is as well one of the hottest destinations for camping, rafting, hiking, fishing, and paying golf. Colorado is the place where, in the morning, you can play golf, in the afternoon, you can ski and, at night, you can relax in the hot springs. Being the eighth largest state in the United States , Colorado offers a diversity of landscapes, from wide, flat eastern plains, to sparkling cities of the Front Range, snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the red rock plateaus of the Western Slope and many other.

You'll have 300 days of sunshine a year, during summer, the temperatures reaching between 75 and 85 degrees, and during winter, between 30 and 70 degrees. This is why Colorado is ideal for outdoor exploration and activities. Colorado has 18 million acres of public land - three national parks, six national monuments, 40 state parks, 15 national forests and grasslands, seven national monuments, and national recreation areas. The state has also 24 scenic byways that present every corner, culture and ecosystem in Colorado. Here there are as well 54 of the 61 "fourteeners" (14,000-foot peaks) in the continental United States.

No matter where you go, in Colorado, you'll get a bit of adventure, a lot of family fun, breathtaking vistas, sparkling waters, cultural crossroads, historic side trips, plenty of relaxation and, of course, you’ll have memories for a lifetime. During summer, visitors can practice river rafting and hot air ballooning, horseback riding and 4x4 tours, camping, water skiing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, golfing, paragliding, fishing, sailing, caving, and a lot of other wonderful sports. During winter, you can enjoy world-class skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, ice-fishing, ice-climbing, tubing, sleigh rides, ice-skating and other.
