Summer Activities

Summer in Telluride, with its host of outdoor activities, festival and other cultural events is our favorite season.  Spend some time with us deep in the San Juan Mountains, breathe in our crisp mountain air and bask in our beautiful Colorado sunshine.  Spend a day hiking, biking or fly fishing, have a relaxing dinner at one of our many dining and drinking establishments, and stroll down historic Main Street perusing our shops and galleries.  There is no better base camp location than Hotel Columbia….in town and on the river.
