Buena Vista is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Located between the Collegiate Peaks and the Arkansas River, this small mountain town offers endless opportunities for adventure in and around its borders. The mountains provide several hiking trails, and exposed rock faces are perfect for climbers to reach new heights. Explore the rugged terrain on wheels by mountain biking or renting an ATV. Another thrilling activity is whitewater rafting down the Arkansas River. After a day of adventure, rejuvenate your muscles by soaking in one of the town’s hot springs. Cottonwood and Mount Princeton hot springs offer pools for soaking and swimming, along with spa services. End your day with dinner at one of the many restaurants in Buena Vista’s historic downtown. Make your stay in this breathtaking location even more unique by booking one of the top yurts near Buena Vista, Colorado.
