Frequently asked questions

This is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’ questions because it depends on how much you want to see and how attached you are to sleep. If you are planning to visit all four national parks, you could possibly squeeze it into 10 days. If you can stretch it to two weeks you’ll be able to enjoy some much-needed downtime in between.

What to pack depends on the time of year you plan to visit and what you hope to do while you’re in Colorado. The weather can change quickly, so be prepared with lightweight layers and a rain jacket. If you’re planning on exploring the national parks, be sure to pack your hiking gear.

The great news is that Colorado is jam-packed with incredible experiences and awe-inspiring scenery so you could literally go anywhere and have a wonderful holiday. If you’re looking for a cosmopolitan city break, look no further than Denver. Colorado Springs is great for nature lovers, while Aspen and Breckenridge are ideal for winter sports enthusiasts. If you’re keen to take a hike, Rocky Mountain National Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, Mesa Verde National Park, Garden of the Gods and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park offer breathtaking views and once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

Colorado Springs boasts a small-town vibe, with plenty of locally owned restaurants, watering holes and cafes to keep those pesky pangs at bay. If you’re after that cosmopolitan city life, Denver is it. Generally speaking you need a car to get around Colorado Springs, while Denver offers more public transport options. Denver also has an aquarium, a zoo as well as museums and restaurants.

If you’re looking to explore the great outdoors and make the most of Colorado’s hiking trails and water sports, from mid-June to September is ideal. If you’re keen to hit the slopes, aim for December through to early March.

Take a hike (literally) or fly head-first down snow-covered mountains, spot some wildlife in the Rocky Mountain National Park, drive the Trail Ridge Road, explore Denver and spend the day museum hopping, get up close with some furry friends at Denver Zoo, see street art, catch a gig, sled down some enormous sand dunes, wander around the Garden of the Gods, the list is endless!
