Explore the “Switzerland of America”

Whether you simply wish to rejuvenate yourself by relaxing and basking in nature’s glory or prefer to tackle one of the adventures this nature’s playground has to offer, how active you are is based solely on your state of mind and your imagination.

Ouray is high in the Rocky Mountains

where Mother Nature calls the shots—and where the mountains take center stage.

Here in the Switzerland of America, visitors can see snow in July or balmy 60-degree temps in January. The spring flowers in the high country are a treasure, the green meadows with pine trees seem to touch the sky in summer, the aspens glow in the fall, and sheets of ice coat the mountainsides in the winter. It’s always an adventure!

Ouray has over 500 miles of 4-wheeling fun (Jeep or ATV), from easy to class 5 adventures. Experience Ouray’s history or hike through the high country and feel like you are on top of the world. And at the end of the day, you can soak under the stars in the Chalet’s hot tub or head to the naturally heated water of the Hot Springs Pool.

Want to see a truly colorful Colorado? Come vacation during the early fall and spring seasons. This is the best time for the warm colors of the autumn foliage and the pastels of the new spring flowers.


With the snow comes fabulous cross-country skiing, snowshoeing rugged landscapes, and world class ice climbing right here in town.

Our small mountain town houses the famous natural hot springs and ice climbing park, the Ouray Ice Park.


Explore during the fall months, which showcase the surrounding mountain forests exploding with autumn colors.

Drive down the Dallas Divide or Million Dollar Highway to enjoy the colorful aspens, or explore the haunted buildings of nearby ghost towns.


Ouray offers a variety of fun and exciting summer activities such as jeeping, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and fishing.

This mountain town has many opportunities for new adventures. Enjoy the many trails, restaurants, and other activities Ouray has to offer.

There is so much to see and do during your vacation, so plan on visiting for several days. And remember, after your day’s adventure, the Ouray Chalet Inn will be waiting—a welcomed respite where you can relax on the shaded patio or in the outdoor hot tub, take in the gorgeous scenery, reflect on the day’s adventure, and plan tomorrow’s activities.
