History Colorado Tours & Treks offers a grand assortment of travels to enrich your understanding of our state’s history, and beyond. Our 2019 tours reflect the growing interest and excitement in our state’s history and seeing its heritage as a firsthand experience. Walk in the footsteps of those who founded our state, our towns and our counties. Each trip is specially designed to inspire wonder in our past.
Join us for a year of adventures from neighborhoods in Denver to our viticultural areas on the Western Slope. New this year, History Colorado will go international to find our connections around the globe. We invite you to join us for a year of curiosity, adventure, excitement and, of course, fun! Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to another year of exploring the geography, archaeology and history of Colorado!
This year History Colorado and AAA Travel have teamed up to offer experiential, one-of-a-kind travel experiences for Coloradans. These specially crafted vacations—Curated Adventures—will bring together Colorado’s community of travelers. In joining like-minded travelers, you may well have found some new friends by the end of the journey. Curated Adventures offers our travelers a unique opportunity to use the expertise of each organization to delve deeply into the heart of a destination. Experts, local guides and naturalists will bring to life the culture, art, history and nature of every locale. History Colorado and AAA Travel are proud to be community partners, offering you singular travel experiences. See PDF below for more information.
New in 2019 is a reduced, one-time, non-refundable annual registration fee of $5 toward the processing and handling of all History Colorado reservations in the Tours & Treks program. The fee is applied to your credit card with your first reservation for 2019.
Tours do not require a deposit at signing. Payment in full will be taken within 7 days of the tour.
Overnight treks require a $100 deposit due at registration, refundable up to the registration deadline, typically 45 days before departure. The remaining balance will be split with a 50% deposit taken at the registration deadline. Final balance due 7 days prior to trek.
International treks require a $500 deposit due at signing, refundable up to the registration deadline. The remaining balance will be split with a 50% deposit taken at the registration deadline. Final balance due 7 days prior to trek.
You may cancel a trek reservation without penalty before the registration deadline. If canceled 45–30 days before departure, 75% refundable. If canceled 29–14 days before departure, 50% refundable. Cancellations 13 days or less before departure are nonrefundable.
You may cancel a tour 7 or more days prior to the date of the tour without penalty. Cancelations with less than one week’s notice may not be refundable.
All prices for treks are based on double occupancy. If there is only one occupant for a room, a single supplement fee applies. Roommates can be requested but are not guaranteed. Roommates may be requested by name but don’t have to be. If you’re not paired with a roommate by the registration deadline, you’ll have the option of opting out of the tour without penalty. If you’re paired with a roommate and the roommate cancels after the registration deadline, you’ll not be assessed the single supplement fee.
