As crisp mornings and chilly evenings begin to creep into the Rocky Mountains, autumn begins to show its colors. Yellow, red and green leaves have begun to spot the hills of Vail Valley, and Solaris Vail knows the best ways to experience this beautiful – and often brief – season. Fall activities are in no short supply in Vail, and our personal assistants are more than happy to help arrange fall excursions that are sure to please parties of any size or proclivity.
While the mountains may not be covered in blankets of fresh snow quite yet, the selection of outdoor activities remains abundant. From hiking, biking and horseback riding the beautiful trails that weave throughout the valley to white water rafting down the Colorado River, the beauty of Vail in fall can be witnessed everywhere. These outdoor excursions are a great way to enjoy fall’s last breathes of warmth before winter has us preparing for ski season!
And, if you find yourself craving a bird’s-eye view of the changing Aspens, Vail is home to some of the most exquisite hot air ballooning sites in Colorado. In the fall, these balloon tours will guide you along the Rocky Mountains and provide you with undoubtedly some of the best views the state has to offer.
If you’re looking for fun events and festivals, Vail still does not disappoint: The Vail Oktoberfest celebration and Vail Restaurant Week are great ways to indulge in this small mountain town’s culinary scene before the weather begins to cool.
