The Unaweep's Scenic Byway

An hour and a half from the city of Grand Junction and tucked into the canyons that comprise the Uncompahgre Plateau in Mesa County, the five-star Gateway Canyons Resort is an award-winning stop on one of Colorado's most historic byways. Surrounded by red rock formations towering 1,000 feet high, this retreat features casitas, luxury rooms and hundreds of acres for exploration. If you're looking to stay in one place, this is it. Described as a single stop for adventure and thanks to its high standards of service and on-site amenities, the resort was named "Best Adventure Resort in Colorado" by "Best Of" and Condé Nast's #12 Best Resort in the World.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity

  • The On-Site Adventure Center

    Gateway Canyons Resort takes pride in its reputation as an all-encompassing adventure destination. If you feel the need for speed or prefer a more low-key afternoon, there's an activity to suit every guest.

    Off-road vehicles. Available for five- to seven-hour reservations, rent an off-road or utility task vehicle. You'll explore Calamity Camp, Dolores Point and more.

    Hiking and climbing. Join an expert for a guided hike into high desert. Juanita Arch is a great option for intermediate hikers and more advanced travelers can try rock climbing on Palisade rock. If you would prefer a solo hike in the backcountry, ask your concierge for a map.

    Fly fishing. Learn the basics of casting a line and head out on a guided fishing excursion. Experienced fishermen can simply enjoy the catch-and-release fishing pond located nearby on national forest land.

    Wine country. Nearby in Grand Junction, Palisade and Delta, winemaking has been slowly building into an active scene. Ask your concierge for recommendations about where to find the best.

Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Gateway Canyons Vacation

    The weather in Gateway is beautiful every month of the year. Colorado receives approximately 300 days of sunshine per year, so even when there is a chill in the air, the sky is generally sparkling. Summers are mild, cool and dry; fall is crisp with changing leaves; and spring is bright and cool. Winter can be frosty with plenty of snow for winter sports. Thanks to its location on a plateau between canyons, Gateway is generally warm and mild in the spring and summer months. As with any Colorado vacation, it's best to pack layers for your visit.
