There won’t be a fireworks show this year due to the dry climate and fire danger, but there are plenty of other outdoor activities to fill up your day including, rafting, zip lining, Via Ferrata, hiking, biking and fishing. Our Buena Vista outpost is only an hour away with activities ranging from a few hours to multi-day rafting trips. This is where you’ll find our Granite Via Ferrata course where you’ll traverse along the mountainside on iron bars just like the Italians did in World War I.  

Also only an hour away you’ll find our Kremmling Outpost with our Scenic Float down the Upper Colorado River. This trip is mild enough for the little ones as young as 2 years old to come along. Older kids (and the young at heart) can ride in inflatable kayaks or on stand-up paddle boards to make the trip more exciting. You can also enjoy our 2 or 4 hour Fly Fishing trips on the beautiful Upper Colorado River.  

Whatever you choose to do this Fourth of July in Breckenridge we know you’ll have an amazing time!
