Scenic Bus Tours in Rocky Mountain National Park

Moose in Kawuneeche Valley RMNP

Summer Bus Tours in Rocky let everyone in your group experience the scenic vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park from the comfort of a 14 passenger mini-bus or a 12 passenger van.  The Rocky Mountain Conservancy Field Institute has created three educational adventures by bus to the most popular areas of the Park that are a great alternative to driving yourself. 


  1.  Journey to the Top takes you up Trail Ridge Road to over 12,000 feet elevation & the Alpine Visitor Center.  Don’t miss getting out and taking a close look at the tiny tundra wildflowers and amazing ecosystem that survives the harsh winters of the Continental Divide – but bring a jacket as it can be considerably colder up high than in the summer valleys below.   Lots of stops for views, but walking at altitude isn’t required.  Every Wednesday & Thursday from 9a – 3:30p.  Lunch included.  Leaves from the Fall River Visitor Center.
  2.   Grand Lake Safari runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays through August 26 and takes you across the Continental Divide to the west side of the Park and historic Grand Lake.   This all day tour (8a – 5p) leaves from the Fall River Visitor Center and includes lunch.  It includes all the stops on the Journey to the Top plus the Kawuneeche Valley.
  3.  Each Friday from 8am – noon through September 5, 2014 the Rocky Mountain Conservancy – Field Institute (formerly known as the Rocky Mountain Nature Association) will offer an Escape to Bear Lake tour which will start at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center and drive the length of Bear Lake Road discussing park history, geology, wildflowers & wildlife, and more.  Participants can walk or stroll around Bear Lake and Sprague Lake with their guide (mostly even, paved terrain)  to learn more about the subalpine ecosystem, and practice their nature photography.

Bear Lake is one of the most popular, accessible, and beautiful destinations within Rocky Mountain National Park, and you don’t want to miss it.  Entrance into the Park is included in the fee for this tour, which is new this year.
