Heart-Thumping Date Ideas in Colorado

If you are thinking of a heart-thumping date idea with your Valentine this year, the Royal Gorge Via Ferrata is hard to beat! The Via Ferrata is a unique rock climbing experience that welcomes all skill levels. As long as you are up for an adventure, you can climb it with your special someone. Climbing harnesses and helmets are provided in our Via Ferrata tour, and we recommend wearing warm layers, sturdy shoes, and gloves this time of year.

As you enter the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, you will make your way to the cozy gondola cars to reach the start of your Via Ferrata tour. The ride is one of the longest single-span gondolas in the country and offers a bird’s-eye view of the Royal Gorge and its surrounding landscape. You’ll enjoy sitting hand-in-hand in the gondola as it suspends 1,200 feet in the air, gliding you to the south rim of the Royal Gorge to the Via Ferrata course.  

Your expert mountain guide will take you down the hiking trail into the Royal Gorge where you’ll be met with your first clip-in spot. You and your Valentine will scale the cliffs along rocks, up the steel rungs, and over outcroppings for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day date.
