Top 10 Tours & Rentals in Breckenridge

10. Free Ride Bus

MAP   SITE   (970) 547-3140

This collaborative effort between the ski resort and city might mislead you into thinking that government and business CAN play together in the sandbox! Routes are color-coded and can be predetermined on the website. This is the one time that something free and easy comes with no crazy strings attached, putting it at the top of our Top 10 Breckenridge transport list! Hours of operation: daily 6:15 AM - 11:45 PM. 

9. Snowshoeing Tour

MAP   SITE  (970) 453-6855

If you want to make hiking at altitude even harder, do it in tennis rackets! Just kidding, snowshoes have evolved from the days of borrowing other sports’ gear, and you can struggle with everyone else in group, semi-private, and private tours! Evening full moon tours available for those wanting to dance with the wolves. The Top 10 Breckenridge tours start times and durations vary, so call for scheduling. Self-guided tours available daily 9 AM - 4 PM.

8. Imperial Express


Getting high in Colorado comes in many forms! This Top 10 Breckenridge tour is the highest chairlift in North America, elevating you to 12,840 feet in just under 3 minutes. Hopefully you’re good enough to ride the backcountry terrain back down, but you can always be that sad person riding the lift in the wrong direction. Follow Frosty’s Freeway on Peak 8 to Chair 6, then take Chair 6 to the high-speed Imperial Express!

7. 4x4 Offroad Tour


Offered at the Summer Fun Park, this Top 10 Breckenridge tour gives you the thrill of adventure without that dangerous part! Open-air, safari-style Jeeps fit up to 7 people and cavort across Peaks 7 and 8 for 90 minutes, providing spectacular views from the top of the Ten Mile range. Tours depart at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM and can be added to the Adventure Pass.

6. Nordic Sleigh Ride

MAP   SITE   (970) 453-2005

It wouldn’t be a trip to one of America’s premier snowy town resorts without a motherlovin’ sleigh ride,  so bundle up, nestle under the provided blankets, send good vibes to your majestic draft horses, soak up the gorgeous views, and indulge in a steaming hot cocoa while you ponder if you somehow opened a cupboard door and ended up in Narnia. Group rides available in afternoons or evenings, as well as exclusive romantic or mining camp excursion trips at this Top Ten Breckenridge tour.

5. Hot Air Balloons

MAP   SITE   (888) 468-9280

Easily accessed from Breckenridge is this National Heritage Area at 9,000 feet, all viewed from a very lucky bird’s eye!

4. Snowmobiling Tour

MAP   SITE   (866) 998-0696

3. Whitewater Rafting

MAP   SITE   (970) 236-9402

At the Colorado Adventure Center, multiple whitewater rafting trips are available but the most convenient is Blue River, because yes, there is a lazy way to do extreme sports. These Top 10 Breckenridge tours are highly rated, offer stunning mountain views in the Gore Range, and is a half-day long so those local cold brews will still be waiting for you. Prepare for May-June as ideal rafting months, but call ahead as all trips are weather permitting.

2. Roger’s Snowbike Rentals

MAP   SITE   (406) 646-7855

Family owned since 1996, Roger finally convinced mega-Breck to rent his snowbikes in 2012. Legitimately looking like a wheel-less bike plopped on baby skis, this snowbike is exactly what you would imagine to be the result of a stubborn person’s determination to get their groceries in a blizzard, even though their bike doesn’t have tires. Plus you can ride the ski lift next to actual skiers and snowboarders! That should be fun. Hours vary, ages 9-90 welcome!

1. Snow Caps Sled Dogs

MAP   SITE   (970) 453-7855

Featured on the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” this Top Ten Breckenridge tour actually isn’t deadly, because that’d be a bummer trip, but it is a catch! Facility and yard tours available, as well as a coveted dog-powered scooter tour! Winter tours are offered through partner Good Times Adventures. Plus, this may be the only dogsled kennel where you can actually leave with your very own sled dog! Adoptions available.
