GUIDED TOURS & HIKES OF BRECKENRIDGE

BHA will be closed through the end of May. We will post our summer schedule in mid-May.

Join a local expert to explore the history of Breckenridge! From a rough and tumble mining camp, to a civilized Victorian town, to a hippie haven, and now an international resort destination, there's history on every corner. We offer guided walking tours, hikes, and snowshoe adventures as well as mine tours and Victorian teas. There's something for everyone - families, couples, explorers, and those just strolling through town while the rest of their group is on the slopes. We offer activities year-round and will go out in sun, wind, and snow. Check out our frequently asked questions by clicking the "Know Before You Go" below.

All prices are for adults (ages 13+) and children (ages 4-12). Small children under 4 are always free.
