Whether you're driving or flying into town, grandiose views await just outside your window. The town of Alamosa is located in the heart of the San Luis Valley in beautiful South-central Colorado, conveniently accessed from Colorado's Front Range to the east, Gunnison/Buena Vista to the north, Pagosa Springs to the west, and Taos, New Mexico to the south. Upon driving or flying into town, you’ll first be greeted by 100-mile views across our high desert as you emerge from the surrounding mountains that naturally form a ring around the valley. These expansive views leave a striking first impression while offering your first dose of inspiration for the many adventures ahead.
Travel to and from Alamosa is now easier than ever. Visitors have the opportunity to book flights to and from Denver International Airport daily through the San Luis Valley Airport by flying SkyWest. Located only 7 minutes from Downtown Alamosa, getting here has never been easier.
The funny thing is, every way into town is the scenic route—although some are more popular than others. Los Caminos Antiguos takes the cake when it comes to scenic drives, as it’s recognized as one of Colorado’s 26 official scenic byways. Translated to “the ancient roads”, this route traverses through Colorado’s oldest town, oldest parish, and one of the first military posts. This is a notoriously great way to start or wrap up a road trip to Alamosa.
