Plan a family adventure vacation at Vista Verde, a working Colorado dude ranch, to get in touch with nature, eat delicious food and try a range of activities.

In the summer, there is horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking and biking on the 500 acres. In the winter, enjoy snowshoeing, backcountry skiing and track skiing on 30 km of groomed trails on your family adventure vacation. The Spa Building at the ranch houses the fitness room and an outdoor deck with a hot tub.

Several programs at the ranch were designed especially for families, such as family-friendly river rafting and kayaking, and a daily program for kids and teens with trained wranglers.

The ranch offers private cabins and lodge rooms. The cabins are furnished in western style with lodgepole pine beds and handmade log furniture. The cabins have private hot tubs outside on the deck.


The three lodge rooms, located in the main building, feature handmade furniture, western art and balconies with a view.

The chef prepares three delicious meals daily, included in the rate. If you would like to learn how to prepare some of the dishes served at the ranch, you can attend cooking classes.

Plan This Trip:

All-inclusive Sunday-to-Sunday weekly rates start at $3,700 per person plus tax and gratuity. Children's rates are $600 lower.
