Colorado

The Centennial State

Colorado invites you to come and be captivated by its western history, world renowned ski resorts, modern art, famous breweries, wonderful wineries and the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains; just imagine your perfect holiday hot spot and make it a reality in Colorado. Ten hours flying time from the UK, Colorado is a year-round destination. During the spring, summer and autumn months visitors can experience the vibrant capital city of Denver and explore the four national parks and a World Heritage Site. Take in the scenery on 25 scenic and historic byways, enjoy wine tasting in over 80 vineyards, relax on one of eight historic train rides or tackle a myriad of world class outdoor activities. Then in the winter months head to one of the 26 world-class ski resorts where skiing and boarding the world famous Rockies while admiring panoramic vistas of jagged mountain peaks is the norm. Add crisp, blue-sky days and incredibly varied terrain, and it’s easy to understand why Colorado attracts more skier and snowboarder visits than any other state in the US. From sky-scraping, snow-capped mountains, to rolling prairies, rushing rivers to desert lands, in Colorado visitors can be sure to experience it all.
