off-road Adventures

Delete whatever is on your camera’s memory card, because our off-road tours provide endless photographic opportunities. To say these tours are awash in splendid scenery would hardly do justice to an otherwise indescribable adventure. Trips may follow Aspen Mountain’s Summer Road up, up and away until reaching the 11,212 foot summit. Here you’ll look down on the town of Aspen, across the Maroon Bells wilderness and out to the Continental Divide. Depending on the tour, you may also traverse butterfly-inducing ridge lines, along the shore of crystal blue lakes. All tours offer snacks or boxed lunch selections from our premier restaurant, Element 47. Come one, come all, as Summer Adventures with The Little Nell are open to the public.
