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, passing through fields of summer wildflowers and keeping an eye out for Colorado wildlife. 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 a selection of pastries or fresh fruit prepared by our culinary team. Come one, come all, as Summer Adventures with The Little Nell are open to the public.
Approximately 2 hours round trip. Departure time is available between 7 am – 1 pm.
Our most popular Aspen adventure, The Little Nell's spectacular sunset off-road tour takes you from town to the top of Aspen Mountain to soak up stunning 360-degree views of the Elk Mountain range and fields of wildflowers. Arrive at Aspen's premier spot for sunsets, complemented by a cheese and charcuterie board or crudite. Enhanced the experience with wine and beer offerings at an additional cost.
Approximately 2 hours round trip. Departure time varies based on sunset.
Linger longer and gaze at the stars with a private astronomy guide. The high alpine environment is free of light pollution, providing crystal clear views of the night sky. Learn about the night sky and see meteor showers, shooting stars, quarter moons and constellations in Aspen with state-of-the-art binoculars or a telescope. Blankets will be provided, but extra layers are recommended such as a fleece jacket and jeans.
Please note, we can accommodate up to 3 guests per vehicle for Stargazing Tours.
