Day 1 
WELCOME TO THE WEST

Friday afternoon (around 3pm), we’ll meet at Union Street Station in downtown Denver. From there, we'll transfer up to our remote ranch for the weekend. Once we arrive, we'll have a couple of hours to explore the property and settle in before enjoying a homemade meal inspired by the ole west!

 

After dinner, we'll head out to the campfire for stargazing, smore’s, and hot toddies around the campfire.

Day 2 
#RANCHLIFE

CAPTURE

Enjoy a ranch style breakfast then saddle up to go horseback riding through the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

 

We'll divide up into groups based on skill and comfort level so everyone can ride at their desired pace (beginners welcome!) 

 

After lunch back on the ranch, everyone is free to explore as they please. You can go hiking, try trap shooting, learn to throw a tomahawk, play on the frisbee golf course or just read a book on the porch :)

 

That evening we'll have another home-cooked meal before heading out to the jacuzzi or game room for some old fashion fun.

Day 3 
A FINAL TOAST

On our final morning after breakfast, we’ll take a hike through the surrounding countryside to soak up some final fresh air. If you want to jump back on your horse, there may be time to do one last trail at an extra cost before we head back to the city.

 

We’ll arrive back at union street station, Denver, around 1 p.m., where you can continue your adventure, exploring Denver’s renowned bar scene or heading on your way home.

FAST FACTS

 

Just for fun

Denver averages 300 days of sunshine per year!

The ranch is owned by two former nurses, so you're in safe hands.

The Rocky mountain's large-animal population makes it one of the country's top wildlife watching destinations!

Trip notes

  • If you're flying, arrive at Denver International Airport and jump on the train to Union St Station, a $10 ride to city centre departing every 15 minutes.

  • We love the ranch! It's quirky, unique and very authentic. While it's full of character, rooms are very different in size and are not 4-star standard, as many hotels we use on our other trips. 

  • We may cancel this trip at any time leading up to departure if for whatever reason it is deemed unsafe to operate. 

about this trip

  • For this weekender trip, you'll get to visit the countryside and meet new people, chill out on an authentic Colorado dude ranch, ride horses through on beautiful trails, learn to throw a tomahawk, and roast s'mores and sip on drinks around the campfire.

 

GOOD TO KNOW

  • You can BYOB or buy it there on the ranch.

  • Tips for ranch hands are encouraged.

  • Horse riding is available for beginners, pros and everyone in between.

  • It can get chilly in the evenings, so bring layers and clothes for colder weather.

  • Denver is an awesome place — we highly recommend arriving a few days early or staying a few days after to explore the region!
