Stargazing Tours

Our adventure concierge and an astronomy expert will be your guides on a private stargazing tour to see meteor showers, shooting stars, quarter moons and constellations. State-of-the-art binoculars or a telescope are provided as you enjoy sweet treats and delectable drinks from The Nell while learning more about the night sky.

Aspen Mountain Stargazing Tour

Ascend the backside of Aspen Mountain as the sun sets, and arrive to the top of the mountain just as the night sky appears. Your astronomy expert will provide binoculars and identify stars, constellations, planets and much more, and will answer any questions you have. Blankets will be provided, but extra layers are recommended such as a fleece jacket and jeans. These outings are approximately 2 to 2 ½ hours round trip. Departure time varies slightly throughout the summer, depending on sunset.

T-Lazy-7 Telescope Tour

Venture to T-Lazy-7 Ranch in the Maroon Creek Valley with your adventure guide and an astronomer. Using a high-powered telescope, you'll observe stars, planets, nebulae and galaxies that cannot be seen with the naked eye. This trip is approximately two hours.
