What you can expect

Take off on an unforgettable journey through the past during a guided sightseeing expedition in Mesa Verde National Park. Join an experienced guide and drive to the Four Corners region for a look at some of the oldest and best preserved cliff dwellings in all of North America.

As the sun casts its rosy glow over the landscape, meet your guide in downtown Durango and head into the peaceful countryside. Crest rolling hills and see the sandstone formations of the American Southwest unfold before you. When you arrive at Mesa Verde National Park, make a quick stop at the visitor centre to get your bearings before setting your sights on Cliff Palace.

At Cliff Palace, emerge from the vehicle with the golden Colorado sunlight pooling all around you. National Park Rangers are available to answer all of your questions about the archaeological site, which was home to approximately 100 Ancestral Puebloans between 1190 and 1260. During your visit, benefit from the support of your guide, who is happy to escort you through the more technical sections of the trek.

Climb a series of ladders to behold the sandstone, mortar, and wooden-beam homes from a variety of angles. Inside, find 23 kivas, or sunken rooms used during ceremonial events, in addition to 150 other rooms. Savour lunch from a local bakery surrounded by the exquisite park environs before returning to Durango in time for dusk.
