Experiencing Colorado’s wild history
Denver, the capital of the US state of Colorado, is also fondly referred to as the “Mile High City”. This nickname reflects its location at one mile above sea level, which seems very fitting for a city that is truly flying high. The modern metropolis is many things: hip, green, popular and steeped in history. Situated at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, it is one of America’s trendiest cities – thanks to a sunny climate and myriad opportunities for outdoor leisure activities.
Colorado’s most important feature is, in one word, nature. Denver is the ideal starting point for hikes, mountain bike tours and day trips for both nature and action lovers. Among the most popular destinations in the Rocky Mountains are the small town of Aspen, the four-thousand-metre peak Pikes Peak and the Colorado River.
