Private Spring Rocky Mountain Tour

Enjoy springtime in the Rocky Mountain National Park

Join us for a private guided tour & partially snowy experience in the Rockies! Stick to our pre-planned route, or customize your tour for a special experience you won’t forget!

Springtime in the Rockies

Let Explore Estes take the wheel and guide you through icy roads on a private Spring Rocky Mountain National Park Tour! With our heated front and second-row seats, you’re sure to explore in comfort. We have a pre-planned itinerary that we take our explorers through, but this can easily be customized to give you a completely unique tour. See some wildlife you want to watch? Or maybe go sledding before the snow melts! Just let us know and we will do whatever we can to give you and your party the most memorable experience that you can only get with Explore Estes. With the Rocky Mountain National Park still icy and snowy, our Spring Tour follows the same itinerary as our Winter Tour.

The Itinerary

Tours available March 1st through May 31st:

Our general route on this 4 – 5 hour spring tour picks you up at your location in Estes Park, starts you off with a visit to the Fall River Visitor Center, takes you through beautiful meadows to see a melting waterfall, you’ll be taken up the famous Trail Ridge Road as far as it is opened for the season, and if conditions allow, end with an easy snowshoe-like hike around a melting Bear Lake or Sprague Lake. This guided experience focuses on the early stories and history of Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park with your lake stroll as a bonus activity.

Praise from Past Explorers


Our experience with Explore Estes exceeded all our expectations. My family and I had never been in snow and Riley & Marriah answered all of our questions ahead of the trip. The tour itself was amazing. Pictures do not do it justice. Riley was extremely nice and helpful. We learned and had a blast. If you ever visit Estes, booking with Riley & Marriah is a must!

Riley was awesome! Knowledgeable guide who took us off the beaten path to the most beautiful parts and views in the park. A VIP experience that we will not forget. Great communication throughout the booking. Could not be happier. Thank you Riley for a beautiful day!
