Description

Hop on board a scenic journey through Telluride's high country with our Ophir Pass and Alta Lakes tour. Perfect for those new to off-road adventures, nature lovers, or history buffs alike. Ophir Pass stands at a breathtaking 11,789 feet with an iconic "shelf road" and awe-inspiring vistas. After exploring the summit of Ophir Pass, we will venture to the historical Alta Ghost Town, a mere 4 miles off the beaten path on a Forest Service road. At an elevation of 11,000 feet, Alta is among Colorado's most intact ghost towns. Here, you'll capture the quintessential Colorado snapshot with Wilson Peak in the backdrop, a view straight off a postcard.

Alta holds a special place in history as the pioneering town to harness alternating current electricity during the gold rush era. Your tour will be enriched with fascinating stories and historical tidbits that bring the silent streets of this deserted settlement to life.

For flower enthusiasts, the Ophir/Alta tour is a dream come true, boasting Telluride's most spectacular wildflower displays in the height of summer bloom during July and early August. Join us for an unforgettable exploration of the region's natural and historical treasures.
