Itinerary for Surf and Turf Getaway

Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Please, note that we may alter the itinerary due to weather, trail conditions or other unforeseen circumstances.

Day 1 (Sunday): Arrival
Arrival in Colorado Springs and transfer (shuttle) to the Hotel near the airport. Dinner is not included, but the hotel offers a 20% discount for our guests.
Overnight at Hotel in Colorado Springs

Day 2 (Monday): First Ride
Early morning full hot breakfast at the hotel (starting at 6 AM). At 7:30 AM, our transfer will pick you up from the hotel lobby and take you 2-hours drive to the trailhead on the eastern slope of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. As the pack string is carefully loaded with duffels and supplies, one of the two colorful wrangler/guides picked for the adventure, gives detailed instructions on riding, saddling and care of your mount. Setting out around mid day, we wind up through aspen groves, gamble oak and lodge pole pine, up and into a long glaciated valley. The trail is almost lost as we work around downfall Engle Mann spruce, fording the tumbling stream that gurgles down toward the Arkansas river and eventually the Mississippi. A black tuff eared squirrel chatters indignantly as we pass. Higher up, a cow elk with ungainly calf in tow ambles across a meadow lush with purple larkspur and yellow composites. We set camp near a meadow surrounded by high ridges and glacier chiseled summits towering skyward above. The horses are picketed out. The tents are up in carefully selected flat areas well away from each other and the small campfire is glowing cheerfully as we sip hot drinks while awaiting dinner.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping

Day 3 (Tuesday): Ride across the mountains
The aroma of brewing coffee and the fluttering of Canada Jays signals the start of the day. Some will be up to greet the rising sun, others enjoy the leisure of a no stress morning, awaiting the enticing smell of a traditional cowboy breakfast to tempt them from the warm comfort of bedroll and tent. Following the second pot of coffee, we saddle up for a day of exploration. Leaving camp and pack horses behind we ride up valley in search of the emerald green lake above or perhaps, press on over a barren high pass, beyond the last wind-twisted Brislecone pine for a breathtaking view of the great San Luis valley to the west.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping

Day 4 (Wednesday): Ride back to Trailhead
Up early, we help break camp, catch the horses, pack loads. Now a seasoned, trained outfit, we are soon moving across the meadow and down the valley. Thunder clouds threaten so we hasten along, stopping only to check chinches and loads. Dropping into the heavily timbered low country, we hurry along as the high ridges erupt in claps of rolling thunder and electric display. We are too soon, back at the road and waiting transport to our lodging near the Arkansas River. Hot showers and sheets await.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at accommodation in Salida

Day 5 (Thursday): Rafting on the Arkansas River
After an early meal we drive to Brown's Canyon on the Arkansas River for a wild ride down one of the state's premier whitewater runs. Working together you'll master the art of paddling through the rapids. Guides in each boat make sure safety comes first. During the day you'll conquer rapids such as Zoom Flume, Raft Ripper, Widow Maker and Slidell's Suckhole. You'll have lunch along the river and after the trip everyone will be transported back to our comfortable retreat for drinks and dinner.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at accommodation in Salida

Day 6 (Friday): Rafting through Royal Gorge and departure
Again, we head out early to another wild section of the Arkansas. Now that everyone has rafting experience, we challenge the best continuous section of whitewater in Colorado. This 20-mile trip runs right through the famous Royal Gorge. Rapids named Sunshine, The Wall, Sledgehammer, Squeeze Box and Corner pocket will leave you hollering for more. After a full day, we'll meet the van with everyone's gear and travel back to Colorado Springs. At the end of your trip you will be brought back to the Colorado Springs sometime between 5:00 and 8:00pm. We recommend making prior lodging reservations if you plan to spend the night on Day 6. If you must fly out that evening, please do not schedule a flight before 8:30pm, to make certain you can make your flight.
Meals included: Breakfast & Lunch
