The Little Nell’s team of expert fishing guides has developed an extensive selection of adventures to cater to the needs of any angler, from novice to expert. Most fly fishing outings feature gourmet lunches, complete with white tablecloths, wine selections and fine silverware, for the most sophisticated meal you’ve ever experienced in the great outdoors. Helicopter excursions, women's clinics and float trips in the hotel's  boat are just a few examples of fly fishing activities in Aspen.


Take advantage our fleet of cruiser bikes and choose from a menu of rides for cyclists of all levels, including guided tours, training and instruction from some of Aspen’s top athletes. Delicious, custom lunches are available upon request. We also offer Garmin® GPS units, pre-loaded with suggested rides, so no rider gets lost.


A horse trip in the wilderness of West Snowmass Creek will bring you to a valley with breathtaking scenery, including the stunning Snowmass Lake. At camp, you'll find a dining tent and individual sleeping tents with cots. Fish for trout in the creek near the campsite, and let your chef create something magical to eat in the backcountry (perhaps even the trout you just caught). The next morning, enjoy a hearty breakfast and fish for more trout before your trip back to The Little Nell for a hot shower and 5-star accommodations. This trip is accompanied by pack mules, a guide, chef and fishing guide.


Hike to new heights with one of our Adventure Specialists. They will lead you to the top of Aspen Mountain where you will see soaring views of the Elk Mountains or on a pristine stroll through Hunter Creek.  A complimentary hike is offered through the Adventure Shop each week.


This fast-growing sport is an amazing thrill and an incredible workout.

A Little Nell backpack packed with a gourmet picnic will accompany you on your journey.
