Aspen is full of thrilling terrain, rugged ridges, alpine meadows, and breathtaking views of mountains, canyons, and rivers, but many of these places aren’t able to be seen from car, boat, or other traditional forms of transportation. Consider renting an ATV to explore all that Aspen has to offer behind the scenes. With various trails that take you through the backcountry and around the mountains, you're sure to enjoy the thrill of off-roading.

Most touring companies also offer half-day and full-day rentals, so you'll have plenty of time to stop and take in the majestic overlooks and hit as many trails as possible. ATVs are available for both beginners and those needing top-notch equipment. Our experienced concierge team will handle all of your ATV booking needs, so you won’t have to lift a finger. Instead of spending a lot of time doing extensive research and planning, you will get the very best Aspen has to offer at great rates through a personalized concierge.
