Situated in a true box canyon Telluride is one of those rare places that has somehow moved form end of the road nowhere to world class show piece without losing its soul. If you have never visited, you owe it to yourself to. If you have, then you know what we are talking about and it's probably time to see it again for the first time.
Our Overland AdvenTour guests will delight in the time we spend in and around Telluride. We know Telluride and we know just how to share it.
A short spur road from the San Juan Scenic Skyway leads to the upscale and spectacular European styled Mountain Village situated above the old mining town of Telluride, which has turned world class destination mountain hamlet and as has the ski resort of Telluride.
Arriving at Mountain Village around midday we disembark from the motor coach and take several hours to explore Telluride and the surrounding area.
Guests are encouraged to ride the Telluride Mountain Gondola. The gondola traverses up and over the Telluride ski area and takes a breathtaking descent directly down the mountain into the heart of historic downtown Telluride. You’re free to spend time in the historic town center (although you can't go wrong- the entire town is a National Historic District!), go on a hike, head out on a mountain or road bike, enjoy world class shopping and galleries, picnic, dine or just stroll along Telluride’s lovely river trail. Whatever you choose, you will not be disappointed- a taste of Telluride will leave you wanting to sample much more!
