Great news, the planning has already been done for you! Husbands, want to take your wife on an outdoor adventure (without the tent)? Looking for a Girlfriend Getaway? We've got the perfect trip for you!
All you have to do is:
Picture this: Four days of fabulous hiking on a hiking trail in Rocky Mountain National Park. Your days are evenly paced with 7-10 miles of hiking, and are filled with lush alpine meadows, clear rushing streams, and rocky summits.
Sound good? It gets better. At day's end, instead of setting up the tent, eating freeze-dried food and sleeping on the ground, you arrive at an intimate lodge or B&B. There awaits a cold drink, a hot shower, a gourmet meal and a bottle of wine. Finish off the day by cracking open the window and climbing into a cozy bed. In the morning after a delicious hot breakfast, you're out the door, ready to do it all over again.
Oh, and forget the heavy pack. You only carry your daypack as your luggage has been transferred to the next destination.
Is this the best trip ever?
The Walter Tishma Way, offered by Footpaths of the World, is a European-style inn-to-inn trip in Rocky Mountain National Park. The planning and details are done for you on this self-guided 42 mile adventure.
How it works:
Pre-book: Book your trip with Footpaths of the World in Estes Park, Colorado
Sample Trip Arriving on a Sunday -
Sunday: Fly into DIA (Denver International Airport) in Denver, Colorado. Pre-book the Estes Park Shuttle for pick-up and delivery to your first lodge in Estes Park. You will have already received your packet with route guide, maps, gear guide, etc.
If you drive, your car will be parked at the Estes Park Visitor's Center. Footpaths will see that you get back to your car at the end.
Monday- Thursday: Begin each day with a delicious breakfast. You'll have a short shuttle in the morning. This has proven to be a good thing as your trip manager is able to keep track of you and give you the "three things you need to remember" for that day. You'll finish the day by walking to your lodge. Each night is different and representative of the area. There's a Victorian-style pub, a modern lodge on the lake, a small B&B and two historical lodges oozing with Colorado charm.
This trip can be booked self-guided throughout the summer from the end of May to the end of September. Private guides are also available.
