The premium casitas at Gateway Canyons Resort offers over 800 square feet of luxurious living space, set apart in tranquil seclusion on the resort grounds. Each casita houses a separate bedroom, three of which feature two fireplaces. The stargazer casitas come with a second tier, full-view den, and unobstructed views of the star-filled sky. They have outdoor showers, private decks with fire pits, and five fixture bathrooms with free standing tubs, making a casita retreat an ultimate indulgence.

This retreat will take place at Gateway Canyons Colorado Sports and Spa in Colorado, USA. Each morning at Gateway Canyons Resort, your visit begins in golden light, as the sun illuminates the towering peaks of granite and sandstone in shades of amber and ochre. Across the canyon floor, sunrise moves silently in the valley, warming each cavern, mantle, and peak.

There is not a better place in the world to awaken to nature. All 58 beautiful appointed guest rooms and suites and 14 palisade casitas are decorated to reflect the areas with southwestern aesthetic and offer breathtaking views of the majestic red rock canyons from every room.

Hiking and climbing

Whether heading out with a guide into the vast high-desert landscape or meandering along the resort grounds, you’ll find a Colorado hiking adventure to suit your interest and ability. While at Gateway, take a leisurely hike through desert ranch land, look for spectacular back views of the impressive Palisade, or get your heart pumping with a climb to the top for a spectacular view of the world. Expert-led Colorado hiking tours are offered as half and full-day journeys into the surrounding canyons and high desert Ponderosa Pine forests. Self-guided Colorado hiking experiences are charted on adventure maps for guests who prefer a solo trek in the wilderness and backcountry.

Horseback riding

Spanning more than 500 acres with a generous network of well-marked Colorado horseback riding trails that climb over 1,500 feet in elevation, the facility provides spectacular access to the area’s riches. Experienced guides will take you on an exploration of the base of the Uncompahgre Plateau, the surrounding picturesque desert, and red rock canyons. Both beginners and advanced riders are sure to enjoy the ride.

Jeep tours

Colorado jeep tours include the Calamity Camp/Niche Road, Sheep Creek, Land of the Dinosaurs, and Sinbad Valley. John Brown Canyon and Dolores Point Mesa, the most popular tours, provide outstanding views of the area. Watch the river bend across the state border into Utah and enjoy the panoramic views of Dolores River Canyon into Gateway, the towering La Sal Mountains, and even the distant Spanish Valley.

Mountain biking

Situated on the border of Colorado and Utah, Gateway Canyons has the best of both worlds when it comes to mountain biking. It has classic Colorado mountain bike trails that rise and dip over the mountains and more technical riding made famous in nearby Moab, Utah.

Outdoor laser tag

Experience an outdoor adventure of the highest caliber. You will use high tech equipment while you and your teammates search for the enemy in a wilderness environment.

Palisade Ranch

Discover the land where ranching families of the 1800’s worked to support the region’s mining communities.

River and fishing

Cool off and have fun at the same time. Running next to the Gateway Canyons Resort property, with rapids ranging from class one to Class five, the Dolores River is a perfect run for floaters of all skill levels.

Sport shooting

Enjoy state-of-the-art covered sports range in a beautiful canyon setting. You’ll learn from experienced and passionate instructors in a safe environment.

UTV tours

Thrill yourself and your friends with UTV adventures at the most exhilarating tour series offered at Gateway Canyons. Trips will be offered to two or four people per vehicle at an average between two to four hours in length.

Wine country tours

The staff at Gateway Canyons will be happy to arrange a guided wine country tour of several Colorado wineries in the vicinity or help plan a custom do-it-yourself Colorado wine country tour through the rolling hills of Western Colorado.
