Guided Jeep Tours Across the Royal Gorge Bridge
Enjoy the scenery and see places you can’t access on your own while visiting the Royal Gorge with Colorado Jeep Tours, located in Cañon City just 10 miles east of the gorge. This is the only company that offers guided tours of the region, driving along the southern rim of the park and over the spectacular 2,400 foot long suspension bridge, normally reserved for pedestrians only.
These off-road jeep tours range from 3 hours to all day, and can be enjoyed by people of nearly any age or ability. Have a young one? No problem. Bring along a car seat and secure your child like you do in your own vehicle. Have a dog? Good-natured and well-socialized dogs can come along for the ride. Have mobility issues? Their well-trained guides will make every effort to help you into the Jeep, and insure your comfort and safety along the route.
Once seated in your covered, open-air Jeep with padded seats, you can sit back and relax. All Colorado Jeep Tours adventures are driven by professional and informative guides, so you’re free to focus on the scenery, take pictures, and make memories with your family. Because the custom Jeeps hold up to 10 people, large families can enjoy the experience more by riding together.
On your jeep tour, you will not only experience gorgeous views, you’ll probably learn a bit too, as Colorado Jeep Tours’ guides are knowledgeable about the area and will explain what you’re seeing along the way. They are well-versed in a variety of topics, including old west history, Colorado plants and wildlife, geology, and even paleontology. Did you know the Cañon City region is known world-wide for its dinosaur quarries? Yep, it sure is. In fact, several of the dinosaur skeletons in the Smithsonian museum originated from the quarries along the jeep route.
Want to do more than jeep? All day packages are available from Colorado Jeep Tours that combine a half day jeeping with other area attractions. You can take a ride on the famous Royal Gorge Railroad, go whitewater rafting, enjoy a scenic trail ride on a well-trained horse, zip line across the Royal Gorge, or go wine tasting. Book any or all of these, with a single call to Colorado Jeep Tours at (719) 275-6339, or make reservations online at ColoradoJeepTours.com. You’ll be glad you did!
