We are happy to announce that the moment everyone has been waiting for has arrived!  Nova Guides is open for the 2016 summer season with our family fun activities!  We are thrilled to be open and offering a variety of Vail adventures for you and your family! As of today, we are happy to be running our ATV, Side by Side and Jeep Tours in the morning and afternoon.

Our Vail ATV tour is a fantastic way to explore Camp Hale and the rich history and views that it offers.  Our trails offer a variety of terrain to explore and can accommodate up to two guests on each 2016 brand new Can-Am ATV.  This tour will pick you up from your Vail Valley Hotel (Avon, Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, Edwards, Vail) and bring them to our 6,000 square foot lodge at Historic Camp Hale.  We will provide you with helmets, goggles and rain gear, if necessary, and then bring you on a 2-hour tour on trails in the White River National Forest.  After the tour you will come back to the lodge where you can relax before we bring them back to the hotel.  This tour is approximately 4 hours’ door to door.

Another option is our Side-by-Side tour. Side-by-Side off road adventures are a wonderful family friendly activity for everyone to enjoy.  We offer both two and four seater NEW 2016 Can-Am Commanders for your off-roading adventure.  Your guide will pick you up from your Vail Valley Lodging and travel through endless miles of high alpine terrain, aspen groves and remnants of the 10th Mountain Division at Camp Hale.  This tour will offer guests a three-hour experience on trail and the tour starts at an elevation of 9,200 feet.

Looking to soak up the scenery? Jeeping is an amazing experience for families and guests of all ages.  Nova Guides is proud to offer over 15 different trails and experiences for you to see the natural beauty that the Colorado Rockies and the Vail Valley has to offer on our scenic Jeep tours.  From abandoned mining towns, to towering 14,000 foot mountains, wildflowers and the chance to see wildlife this tour will not disappoint!  This tour is three hours door to door, and includes a snack and bottled water.

As summer is starting out our trails are ever changing and we will be adding extending our trail system as new trails become available.  We aim to start our full season schedule, along with opening McAllister’s Grill on June 15th, 2016.  We look forward to a successful summer and please let us know if we can answer any questions!  Get out there and enjoy everything that Nova Guides and the Vail Valley has to offer. We look forward to seeing you!
