Ouray Colorado

Switzerland of America

Ouray has been a special destination of world travelers for more than 100 years. This small intimate community is nestled in some of the most rugged and towering peaks of the Rockies. Set at the narrow head of a valley at 7,792 feet and surrounded on three sides with 13,000 foot snowcapped peaks – home to hundreds of miles of historic Jeep roads, sulfur-free hot springs with stunning views and the world-famous Ouray Ice Park. Remarkably, two-thirds of the town’s original Victorian structures, are still occupied, and have been lovingly restored in order to preserve their turn-of-the-century charm.
