Nine hours flying time from the U.K. Colorado is a year round destination boasting 300 days of sunshine per year. Whether exploring the four National Parks, six national monuments, 40 states parks, 15 national forests or shopping, dining and enjoying the arts and culture found through out the State, there is a wealth of experience and a myriad of outdoor experience available to all.

Spring & Summer time in Colorado is the perfect time to explore Denver, the “Mile High City” and the State Capital. Denver is known for its energy and vigour and boasts three new sports stadiums, the brand new Clyfford Still museum, the nation’s second largest performing arts centre, a $140 million amusement park, an aquarium and more than 300 restaurants. A shopaholics dream, the city’s shopping centres are destinations unto themselves featuring architecture and ambience that embody the spirit of the American West.
 
The warmer months also offers all travellers to the State the opportunity to partake in its natural beauty, wonder and unparalleled adventure and activities. It is the perfect time to visit Colorado’s 4 National Parks; Mesa Verde National Park being Colorado’s most famous. Mesa Verde is one of the World’s greatest man-made wonders, a towering city of cliff dwellings constructed by the Ancient Pueblo people. Hiking, biking, bird watching and fishing are all popular activities in Rocky Mountain National Park, just North West of Denver, and few places feel a more exciting collision of earth & sky. Another of the National Parks is Black Canyon of the Gunnison, again a day spent hiking is the most popular past time, but only for the most determined.

The final National Park is the Great Sand Dunes, where white dunes rise, Sahara like to 700ft and 50 miles long. Here, picnics and gently hiking are the order of the day.
