Colorado Springs Holidays

One of the America's first destination resorts, Colorado Springs lies sixty miles south of Denver on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains. The city was founded by tycoon William Jackson Palmer and its development was greatly influenced by his aristocratic English wife, hence an influx of tourists from the British gentry and Colorado Spring's original nickname of 'Little London'.

Today, Colorado Springs retains its 19th century elegance. Its natural beauty and temperate climate attract visitors from all over the globe. Many of them come to take advantage of the stunning adventure playground just outside the city limits, from the rapids of the Arkansas River to the jagged red rock spires in the Garden of the Gods and the breathtaking views from the top of nearby Pike's Peak. There are also over 100 miles of multi-use trails around the city for jogging, walking, biking and roller-blading.

There's also a huge wealth of history to be discovered here. Old Colorado City was the original settlement in the region, created to be a supply hub for the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. Now, this area is national historic district within Colorado Springs, with plenty of independent galleries, boutiques and restaurants. You can find out more about the gold rush in Colorado and pan for your own gold at the Western Museum of Mining & Industry and at the Ghost Town Museum.

For all its history, Colorado Springs is also a modern metropolis. The US Air Force Academy and the US Olympic Complex where today’s elite athletes are trained are both located here and both free to visit. You can also take advantage of the city’s vibrant restaurant scene and the state's love for boutique brewing on a holiday that ticks all the boxes: Culture, history and fantastic natural landscapes to explore.

Garden of the Gods

Look out for Kissing Camels, Llamas’ Heads and the Three Graces – all famous rock formations at the spectacular Garden of the Gods, a free to enter Public Park. The red rock geologic features here were created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago and now attract more than 2 million visitors a year including hikers, rock climbers and mountain bikers.


Pike's Peak – the American Mountain

One of the most famous US Mountains, Pike’s Peak dominates the cityscape in Colorado Springs. You can ascend to the top by road or cog railway. Alternatively, if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, it’s also possible to reach the top on foot or by mountain bike. The views at the top will certainly be worth the effort.


Cave of the Winds

Discovered in 1881, the Cave of the Winds has been attracting visitors for more than a century. Nowadays it’s more than just stalactites and stalagmites they come for, but also nail-biting attractions like the TERROR-dactyl (which launches you 150 down into a canyon at speeds of up to 100 mph) and great kids’ attractions including gold panning, archery and rides.


Ride the Rapids

The area around Colorado Springs offers whitewater rafting for all abilities. Whether you want a leisurely float or a heart-pounding ride over rushing torrents, you’ll find yourself in stunning surroundings. Popular rafting spots include the stunning Royal Gorge, Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Browns Canyon, all located along the Arkansas River.p>

Manitou Springs

This historic spa and artists’ colony is just outside Colorado Springs and great for a day trip with its pretty centre and boutique shops. It’s also the site of the Manitou Cliff Dwellings Museum (exhibiting relocated Anasazi Indian cliff dwellings), Miramont Castle and the lower station of the Pike’s Peak cog railway.
