Buena Vista Activities

Buena Vista Colorado ActivitiesBuena Vista has something for everyone. From mountain bike trails to art walks downtown, there is plenty to do and see for all ages.

For adventure seekers looking to get wet, there are plenty of exciting whitewater options to keep the whole family happy. From easy beginner rafting trips through scenic Brown’s Canyon to the hair raising advanced rapids of Pine Creek, perfect for kayakers, the only decision is which one are you ready to take on!

Head upstream for some of the best fly fishing in the state, if not in the country.  Veteran anglers may want to set out on their own, but beginners (and anyone wanting to improve their technique or learn the best spots on the river) may want to hire a guide.

Horseback riding, jeep tours, mine tours, and numerous other outdoor adventures abound in the Arkansas River Valley, making Buena Vista the perfect basecamp.

There is also a plethora of mountain bike trails in the area. There is a river trail that is relatively flat and smooth for an easy cruise. For those wanting to push their limits there is the Monarch Crest Trail not too far away. How does 11 miles all above 11,000 feet sound? Oxygen anyone? 

If taking a leisurely stroll down Main Street while taking in the panoramic views of the Collegiate Peaks sounds more like your kind of vacation, then you have found the right place. The town of Buena Vista has a quaint little home town feel to it that you are sure to enjoy. With plenty of shops and art galleries to browse, you are sure to find something to fill your day.

Whatever your desires, Buena Vista is a perfect vacation getaway with plenty to see and do.
