Explore Nature’s Beauty

Situated in the midst of the Arapaho National Forest, and only 20 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park, Granby is an authentic mountain town. You can hike, fish, and paddle for days and still leave plenty unexplored for your next visit.

The Colorado River and Fraser River run right through town, and the forests are home to diverse wildlife species. Whether you travel with a field guide and binoculars or just the camera on your phone, there is so much to see and do in our forests and rivers.

If you like to cover as much ground as possible, horseback riding will take you there. Keep an eye out for deer, elk, and moose, and fill your nose with the smell of wildflowers. Stop to bask in a meadow or cool down next to a misty waterfall.

When you’re rested up from your ride, come perfect your golf swing surrounded by some of the best scenery Colorado has to offer. Golfing in the Granby area features award-winning courses at a competitive value.

Find Adventure Year-Round

Even if you’re not usually an early riser, it’s worth it to set that alarm for an early morning hot air balloon ride. Launching all year, weather permitting, these trips are a marvel no matter the season. Take in the fall colors from above, or watch a game trail unfold in the snow.

After your landing and champagne toast, spend some time exploring on the ground. There are hiking trails everywhere. If you’re visiting in the wintertime, some of them will be groomed for cross-country skiing. Come fishing season, you can take advantage of three large scenic lakes in the area, plus our rivers. Fans of fly fishing and ice fishing alike will be all smiles.

For something with a little more motor power, gas up and check out Granby’s ATV & off-roading scene. ATV rentals are available, or you can go on a guided, off-road tour of sights like the Continental Divide.

When it’s time to shake off that dust, the young and young at heart will love summer tubing. This is Granby recreation at its most innovative. Enjoy the thrill of winter tubing, without the chill!
