And thanks to our nearby location, driving from Denver and back in one day is no problem. Our location makes LAPR the perfect spot for a day trip near Denver. On an average day, it will take only 45 minutes to reach our incredible wilderness playground.

LAPR offers a range of season-specific activities for guests to enjoy year-round. Many of these activities are only a couple hours long, making them great for a quick adventure out of town. Here are just a few of the activities and adventures available to you at LAPR during your next week day getaway!

Winter Activities

LAPR’s location makes it perfect for enjoying a range of winter activities. 

For instance, you can spend your week day getaway on a guided snowshoeing hike to beautiful St. Mary’s Glacier. Enjoy unforgettable Rocky Mountain views on this short group hike that only lasts 2–4 hours. Perfect for a quick week day getaway out of town!

Love to ski or snowboard? You’re in luck! We’re located just 20 minutes away from Loveland Ski Area, one of Colorado’s premier ski and snowboard destinations. Not an expert skier? No problem! We’re also just 40 minutes away from Echo Mountain, another resort that also features snowtubing! 

Spring Activities

Stop by LAPR during spring-time to enjoy the gorgeous blossoming wilderness coming to life after a long winter. 

Explore the Rocky Mountain wilderness with your friends and family on a guided UTV trip throughout the outdoors, and if time permits, maybe even to an old gold mine! Lasting only 1–2 hours, our UTV side-by-side trips are perfect for a quick break away from the city for a few hours.

Ever wanted to try river rafting? Enjoy a full-day excursion up the scenic Upper Colorado River and drift past winding canyons and rolling hills. This adventure lasts from 9 AM to 4 PM, ensuring that you have plenty of time to make it back to town afterward.

Our spring rafting trips on the Upper Colorado are available until Memorial Day when summer season officially kicks off and we switch to whitewater rafting on Clear Creek!

Summer Activities

Kick things up a notch this summer with white water rafting at Lawson Adventure Park and Resort! Rated one of the top 7 places to raft in Colorado, Clear Creek provides a great whitewater rafting experience for beginners and intermediates alike. 

Don’t feel like leaving just yet? Why not book an all-day adventure package instead? Experience everything that the Colorado wilderness has to offer with our All-Terrain Via-Zip-Raft package. This adventure bundle includes our Via Ferrata mountain climb, ziplining over the trees from Via Ferrata, and whitewater rafting on Clear Creek. 

Don’t like the water? Our Via Ferrata Mountain Climb package includes a Via Ferrata mountain climb followed by an exhilarating zipline back down with gorgeous views over the trees below. 

And our UTV tours aren’t just limited to spring and winter, they’re also an excellent adventure in the summertime. Trek through the beautiful Rocky Mountains with your friends and family in a side-by-side 4-seater UTV. What’s a UTV? Think of it kind of like an ATV but safer, bigger, and easier to drive.
