Colorado Springs: Garden of the Gods Segway Tour

1. Colorado Springs: Garden of the Gods Segway Tour

Experience one of nature's greatest treasures, the Garden of the Gods, on an exciting segway tour. Admire nature as you pass by Colorado sights such as Kissing Camels, Praying Hands, and Park Overlook, and learn about the history of the Old West. Enjoy unobscured views and a mellow pace to make the visit to the red rock park memorable. Watch as your guide points out exotic plant life, red-tailed hawks, eagles' nests, mule deer, big horn sheep, and numerous geologic formations and the unique caricatures hidden within them. Make several short stops, however; generally, stay on the Segway throughout the tour. Learn about the cultural history of the park and hear a variety of tall tales and true stories of the Old West and Colorado Springs. Be sure to dress in layers with closed-toe shoes. Your tour includes 'Cone Zone' safety training and the best guides in the west.

Colorado Springs: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight

2. Colorado Springs: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight

After meeting your guide, head to the launch point, where you will see the 9-story-tall hot air balloon for the first time. Climb inside a woven basket as the enormous fabric above you swells with air. Listen to the dramatic sounds of the burner as the inflation process continues, gradually lifting you off the ground and taking you to the heavens above. Feel the thrill of drifting 5,000 feet (1,524 m) over the mountains as you raise your glass of champagne in a celebratory toast while ascending high over Colorado Springs. Your knowledgeable and FAA-certified pilot will identify some of the mountains in view as the sun rises higher in the sky, painting the world before you with rich golden hues. Keep an eye out for native birds flying nearby, such as downy woodpeckers, northern flickers, and white-breasted nuthatches.  You'll have the chance to take breathtaking aerial shots of the Rocky Mountains throughout your flight, so be sure to take a few snaps from the air.

Enjoy spectacular views for 100 miles in all directions and take a moment to relax and relish in the unforgettable experience of flying in a hot air balloon.
