The Centennial State combines the atmosphere of the Old West, some of the USA’s most spectacular landscapes and modern cities.

The Rocky Mountains in the US may stretch from the Canadian border with Idaho and Montana through to the north of New Mexico but it’s in Colorado that they are at their loftiest. This is the land of fourteeners – mountain peaks that are at least 14,000 feet (4267 metres) high. The Front Range of the Rockies rise dramatically out of the plains to the west of Denver, also known as the Mile High City, and are home to mountain resorts, national parks and forests. Basically this part of the world is a nature lover’s paradise.
