Colorado - Snowshoe Walk


PhotographyLiterature and FilmFlora-and-FaunaAlpine-SceneryEasy-to-Moderate-Walking

Shake off the Winter blues and join The Wayfarers for a showshoeing adventure based in glorious Estes Park Colorado. We stay at the world famous Stanley Hotel with amazing views of the Rocky Mountains and we'll enjoy snowshoeing, ghost hunting, a spa treatment, shopping and of course dining!

A special highlight will be our historic ghost tour of the Stanley Hotel, which was built in 1910. Author Stephen King was inspired to write 'The Shining' while he and his wife stayed in Room 217. King later directed the television version of the book which was filmed at the hotel. The tour is fun and full of historic information.
