San Juan Mountain Safari
A Guided Jeep Adventure Designed By You.
“In the mountains, we find beauty, simplicity, stillness, a sense of purpose and adventure. Our imagination has a freedom there and nature sings in a rhythm that reminds us of who we are, what matters, and what doesn’t. If we allow it, the mountains gift us humility through interaction with the extraordinary. These wild spaces we know as the San Juan Mountains call us to be present, remembering that these are the moments and experiences that matter most.”
What is a Jeep Safari?
In simple terms, it’s an adventure that allows you to explore, experience and discover beautiful places with a guide. And, it’s designed by you! Although each one of us naturally interprets our mountain experiences differently, we do have something in common…the desire to enjoy the mountain landscapes we love for just a little bit longer. Perhaps we wish to examine the iconic mining structures of the past, or to capture the ethereal beauty of distant mountain horizons, or simply discover secret groves of wildflowers and waterfalls. It is your own unique interpretation of what nature means to you that makes our Jeep Safaris so special.
Instead of an itinerary, choose an experience. Do you want to explore 19th century cabins and examine vintage mining relics? What about photographing hidden groves of Pink Elephants, Mountain Aster and lavender tinted Columbine framing clear mountain ponds? Are you a rock hound? Investigate mine tailings for different shades of pyrite, sparkling cuts of quartz crystal and other indigenous minerals.
No two Ouray, Colorado based Jeep Safaris are the same…as your group chooses the experience. Small groups (1-5) will be accommodated in specially modified Jeep Rubicons. Groups of (6 – 12) may be accommodated together with advance reservations in a larger vehicle. Please arrive 20-25 minutes early to meet your guide and plan your adventure. Expect an interactive experience with moderate walking/hiking required to see some of the best views, landscapes and wildflowers.
