Experience the Mystic San Luis Valley
Welcome to the Colorado experience you’ve been waiting for. Rooted in the heart of the Majestic San Luis Valley, Alamosa Colorado offers everything needed to enjoy the quintessential Colorado experience... and then some. Overflowing with natural wonders, outdoor activities, culture, and authentic eats, there’s no shortage of things to add to your “to-do” list.
Alamosa’s close proximity to a multitude of sights and attractions makes it an ideal spot for travelers and weekend warriors alike. All within a few hours, you can summit North America’s tallest sand dunes, wrestle local alligators, go chasing waterfalls, and still make it back to the hot springs by sunset for some unfiltered R&R.
Know Before You Go
Just as the Great Sand Dunes’ wind patterns are always in motion- endlessly, moving, setting, and growing- our travel destination continues to change too. Even though the Majestic San Luis Valley remains the same, we’ve adopted new social norms to safeguard our community, visitors, and places. These norms, including responsible travel, social distancing, and maintaining proper hygiene allow us to remain open and up for adventure. We’re glad you're here and look forward to hosting your next experience. Before you do, we recommend you read up local travel alerts and practice the idea of knowing before you go.
Research if your destination (lodging, restaurants, parks, shops and more) are open to the public during your visit date.
Don’t overdo it. Keep activities within your comfort zone, and stick to recreation & activities within your ability level.
“Leave no trace” to keep our beautiful spaces beautiful and open.
“What Can I Expect to Find in Alamosa?”
A truly authentic, diverse, and unrefined outdoors experience. You’ likely stumble upon one of the valley’s many hidden gems spanning the 100-mile high desert area. All within this basin, you can find popular destinations such as the Great Sand Dunes National Park, the Rio Grande River, Sange de Cristo Mountains, and more, each offering wide open spaces with the luxuries of town right around the corner.
