Del Norte - Southwest Colorado

Includes Monte Vista

 

One of Colorado's first cities, Del Norte has been around since 1860 and it's not hard to see why. The town still offers the same beautiful scenery and recreational opportunities that first drew Native Americans and later Spaniards to the region.

Known as "The Gateway to the San Juans", Del Norte has both cultural and recreational opportunities year round. Visitors can fish in the Rio Grande River during the summer or head over to Wolf Creek Ski Area for some deep powder skiing and boarding in the winter. Travelers can also enjoy hiking and ATV trails in the summer or snowshoe and snowmobile in the winter.

Bird watchers should be sure to visit the Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge and The Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge; both are popular stopping places during spring and fall migrations for Sand Hill cranes, ducks, Canadian geese, and occasionally the endangered Whooping crane.

Downtown Del Norte offers plenty of shopping and dining for a unique Colorado experience.

Del Norte is also close to the silver thread scenic byway. Just miles away is the Great Sand Dunes National Park, offering 30 square miles of natural sand dunes towering up to 750 feet high.

Del Norte is near: Alamosa Area & South Fork
