Situated 6,035 feet above sea level, home of the U.S. Olympic Training Center, Pike’s Peak, and a wide-variety of outdoor adventure experiences, it’s the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable, high altitude adventure.

Day Two (Thursday): Arkansas River Rafting Adventure
Kick things off with an optional workout of the day. Whether it’s sunrise yoga, a morning run or targeted strength and interval training, having a personal, certified trainer at your side will give you lots of opportunities to push through existing goals as well as set your sights on new ones. Afterwards, enjoy a wholesome breakfast and gear up for an afternoon of tackling white-water rapids in the beautiful Royal Gorge section of the Arkansas River. Roundtrip transportation, picnic lunch, all necessary gear, equipment and expert instruction will be provided. Later that day, enjoy well-earned R&R and dinner at your leisure (giving you the opportunity to explore an array of excellent dining choices in nearby historic Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs or at our scenic resort).

Enjoy a mountainside breakfast and then ascend via cog railway/shuttle van to the summit of America’s most famous mountain (all 14,110 feet of it!). Take in the breathtaking views from the top before receiving detailed safety instruction and all necessary gear and equipment for our bike descent. From there, we’ll embark on a gorgeous ride down through five different life zones (each with a very different climate, vegetation and wildlife). Keep your eyes open for a variety of wildlife as we take several scenic stops during our 20 mile journey. We’ll end our ride at a local eatery and winery for a riverside lunch and wine tasting. Afterwards, reward yourself with a spa visit or extra R&R at the resort. That evening, we’ll head offsite for dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants.
