Scenic Gondola Rides
Enjoy breathtaking views while the gondola whisks you up above 10,000ft. The Gondola rides in Vail are the best way to take in the mountain views, blossoming flowers and tall trees that Colorado has to offer. Kids 12 and under ride free with an adult purchase of a Scenic Ride Ticket; allowing the whole family to experience magical views of the Vail Valley and access to Epic Discovery. This is a great activity for the whole family or friend group to enjoy together. Don’t forget that you can dine once you reach your destination at the Gondola Rides. Enjoy a unique dining experience in a European chalet, nestled in the wildflower-filled Game Creek Bowl. Featuring distinctive American cuisine, an award-winning wine list and superior service, dining at Game Creek is high above the rest!
Rafting & Kayaking
Vail is a great place to base your rafting or kayaking adventure. Boasting its own Whitewater Park in the center of the village as well as Class I to Class V river trips on the Eagle, Colorado, and even the Arkansas rivers. Book your rafting trip with one of Vail’s rafting companies and learn more about the difference between the classes of rapids in Vail’s surrounding waterways. This is a great activity for groups if you are traveling with a whole family or a group of friends. It will be the most refreshing way to spend your hot Summer Days here in Colorado!
Grab a tube, hop a lift, get a rush! Adventurers young and old will love taking thrilling runs down the 550 ft-long tubing hill. Music entertains you the whole way down, while the Adventure Bahn carpet ride will take you back to the top. This is another great activity for the whole family to enjoy together. At Vail, you can enjoy this thrill ride alone or as a package through their adventure pass and bundle up your adventures!
