Seeing Stars

Adding to an already action-packed list of summer adventure offerings, The Little Nell introduces Stargazing Jeep Tours as shown in this Aspen Mountain video. These nighttime outings are led by an adventure concierge from The Nell and an astronomy expert from Aspen High School. Guests meet at the hotel just before sunset to depart in a Jeep Rubicon loaded with state-of-the-art binoculars to take in the view, food & beverage from element 47 to enjoy at the top, and blankets for the ride down as you wind your way into town.

Anna Kate Belinski, an honor student at Aspen High, was selected to lead this program. A 2013 recipient of the Meteorology, Astronomy, and Oceanography Award of Excellence, Anna Kate’s knowledge of the night sky is extensive. Depending on what is taking place, she will point out meteor showers, shooting stars, quarter moons and constellations, while sharing insights into Greek mythology, Zodiac signs and more.

Stargazing is offered as part of our Richmond Ridge Romance Package or independently based on availability. The cost per Jeep is $539 (which holds up to three guests) or double for two Jeeps (which holds up to seven guests). Enjoy this outing as a couple, a family or with friends. Advance reservations are required with a 48-hour cancellation policy.
