MESA VERDE NATIONAL PARK & DURANGO
Our local guides are keen to unveil the fascinating history of Mesa Verde National Park and the Old West ambience of Durango, Colorado. History-lovers are smitten with this chance for insight into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made this area their home for more than 700 years, between AD 600 and AD 1300. They built elaborate stone communities and sheltered alcoves in the canyon walls – today, evidence of their home base lives on in nearly 5,000 archaeological sites (including 600 cliff dwellings).

Not far away lies the old Colorado mining town of Durango – an enticing cache of Victorian-era saloons, charming bungalows and sleepy streets. Thanks to galleries, live music, organic and locavore dining and myriad outdoor adventures, a Durango vacation is a comfortable blend of cool vibes and homey ambiance.

Colorado-Mountains

Colorado and the Rocky Mountains represent the archetypal Old West vacation experience and we can help you experience it all, from the beautifully preserved ruins of Mesa Verde to the cowboy and cowgirl town of Durango. Your entrée is Denver, the gateway to the Rockies, where you’ll stroll through cultural institutions, including Lower Downtown, the city’s original settlement, and check out the city’s popular microbreweries. Move on to Great Sand Dunes National Park, where herds of bison and many bird species make themselves known. Durango brings with it the opportunity to drive through ghost mining settlements, to hike in the mountains and to raft on the Animas River.

The highlight of your Mesa Verde National Park and Durango vacation is, obviously, the World Heritage Site itself, one of the best-preserved Ancestral Puebloan archaeological sites in the United States. You’ll privately tour the best cliff dwelling sites and gain a better understanding of the culture and daily life of the people who once called this their home.
