The terrain varies, including climbing hills, crossing/riding aside small creeks/rivers, and loping across mountain meadows. Our Wranglers will pair everyone with a horse that best fits their skill level. Get ready to have a new four-legged friend by the end of the week!

Trip FAQ

Where does the tour start and end?
The tour starts and ends in Durango, Colorado.


What is the Activity Level of This Tour?
No special skills are required, but you should have a moderate level of fitness to enjoy many of our adventure activities.

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.


Will there be cellular phone coverage?
The ranch is situated between mountain ranges, which limits cellular service. Verizon is the only service that is currently available on the ranch and works best on the main "street". There is a guest telephone room available to make calls and check in with loved ones. This is free of charge for long distance calls.

What can I expect while horseback riding?
The horses on the ranch are accustomed to many different riders. The guide will match a horse with your experience. While the horses are well-trained and generally very gentle, they are animals and can be unpredictable. Like any outdoor activity, horseback riding has inherent risks and dangers. That said, most people are very happy with their horseback riding experience and injuries are rare. The rides are not traditional trail rides, as you’d find on a typical dude ranch. We limit the guests, so you really learn to control the horse and ride like a cowboy. The terrain varies so be prepared for a variety of rides.

What do you suggest for gratuities?
Your wranglers, cooks, ranch host, and other staff work hard to make your experience top-notch and HE Travel will cover their gratuity. If you feel that they were exceptional, it is up to you if you would like to give more. Your HE Travel tour director works hard behind the scenes to coordinate activities and smooth any glitches. Gratuities are appreciated and are at your discretion. On average, they tend to receive $8-$10 a day.
