Welcome to Cañon City, Colorado - The Royal Gorge

Welcome to Cañon City, Colorado and the Royal Gorge - The Royal Gorge region is located just 2-hours south of Denver and 45-minutes southwest of Colorado Springs in Cañon City, Colorado. The Royal Gorge is host to a number of world class activities and attractions. We're fortunate to be home to the scenic and historic Royal Gorge Route Railroad, considered one of the most spectacular scenic railroads in the world. The railroad prides itself on providing both a spectacular scenic rail journey through the Royal Gorge and offers exceptional service. The railroad carries over 100,000 guests each year in 6 different classes of service. We've put together walking tours of historic downtown as well as historic homes that you may download and bring with you for your visit to Canon City.

Located just outside Canon City is the Royal Gorge Bridge - the world's tallest suspension bridge. If you wish to fly into the Royal Gorge, fly in a jet powered helicopter with Royal Gorge Helitours. The Arkansas River offers the most popular royal gorge rafting trips in Colorado, and the award winning Winery at Holy Cross Abbey is one of Colorado's most popular wineries. Below is a short video showing some of the spectacular scenery found in the Royal Gorge from the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. We've listed below the most popular activities in the Royal Gorge region.
