Leave the boys (and the kids!) at home and head to the mountains with your favorite gal pals for a relaxing and recharging getaway to Estes Park. Soak in the relaxed village atmosphere, get wild in the wilderness and laugh with friends over hand-crafted spirits. There is plenty to do for the ladies in your life in Estes Park, but don't miss out on these ideal girlfriend getaway experiences:
Women seem to do it all, so treat yourself by nourishing your mind, body and soul! Spa sessions specifically geared towards women offer services ranging from traditional massage to seaweed wraps or a green tea glow skin treatment. Continue your relaxation with a yoga class or grab your mats and head out to do yoga at calming outdoor location. We recommend heading up the Gem Lake trail, where halfway through you will find a beautiful rock overlook perfect for thrown down your mats!
Friends Who Learn Together...
Whether developing your creative side or getting to know the park better, classes, seminars and learning programs can help your squad grow together. Sign up for a session of creative expression at a local sip n' paint session. Learn a new technique at a knitting class. Explore the wilderness with a naturalist. No matter what event or class, this is real bonding time.
Honor the rich history of outdoor women in the Estes Park area by hitting the trails in Rocky Mountain National Park to destinations named after famed females of Estes Park. An easy trek to Alberta Falls, is named after Alberta Sprague who owned the historic (and since removed) Sprague Lodge in Moraine Park. For more skilled hikers, venture to the 13, 281 summit of Mount Lady Washington. Anna Dickinson, a late nineteenth century adventure in the area of Estes Park had hiked New Hampshire's Mount Washington many times before heading west to Colorado. It is believed that her nickname, "Mount Lady Washington" was the inspiration for the massive peak.
Craft spirits, that is! Estes Park is home to a variety of local breweries, distilleries and wineries that offer tasting rooms where girlfriends can sip on specialty, hand-made beverages. Learn about the unique tastes and flavors that develop in these artisan spirits from being made in the Rocky Mountains. After the tastings, order a full glass of your favorite and head to the patio to enjoy a refreshing view of the Continental Divide.
After a day on the trails or a ladies-only rock climbing lesson, retreat back to a bubbling hot tub at your cabin or lodge to ease tired muscles and recount the day's adventure. From river front properties to elegant chateaus, browse all Estes Park lodging that offer hot tubs and choose your group's perfect fit.
