Top 13 Yurts In Colorado, USA - Updated 2023


Originally and traditionally used by nomads in Turkey, Siberia, and Mongolia, yurts are collapsible circular tent-like structures that have gained popularity as camping stays. Today, yurts are a great way to experience nature in its truest form and idolize the spirit of roughing it out combined with the fun of it all. And what better a place to experience nature than in the wonderland that is Colorado - with its snow-covered peaks, alpine lakes, tree-covered valleys, and rolling, grassy, verdant plains. So make your outdoorsy trip to the Centennial State special and check out the top yurts in Colorado, USA.

1. Luxurious yurt with internet and a hot tub (from USD 235)

This yurt promises that your experience will be serene and luxurious. It’s nestled among the trees and located far away from people, so all you’ll hear during your stay will be sounds of nature. It’s also close to several natural landmarks, such as the North Fork of the Gunnison River, so feel free to explore the area whenever you want. If you’re lucky, you might come across a few local wildlife.

This yurt is also beautifully appointed, so you’ll always be eager to return here after a long day. There’s an air conditioning and heating system, so you can keep the temperature to your liking and high-speed internet for your entertainment. When you’re hungry, head to the complete kitchen and whip out a delicious meal there.

If your muscles are sore after all the strenuous activities you’ve done, relax in the two-person spa whirlpool next to the river.
