Beyond the Highway is the inspiration of intrepid explorer and Colorado native, Jan Eitel. With twenty years in the hospitality and tourism industry, including managing the Concierge Department at the Five-Star Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, she brings a wealth of knowledge and first-hand expertise to Beyond the Highway. Her passion and thirst for travel, the natural world and adventure began in her youth growing up on Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs. Always an explorer and one to venture off the beaten path, Jan has a lifetime of experiences to offer the tour and travel business.

It is from these roots that a vision for Beyond the Highway began, and realizing others would want to experience, appreciate and understand Colorado and the American southwest in the same way. We base our approach to travel on a passion for the Rockies and the Southwest. You will find yourself immersed in nature, culture, and history while you gain insight into the people, lands and communities of the West. Our commitment is to help people rethink the way they travel, resulting in a unique company that is focused on you, the traveler, and your individual experience as well as attention to how travel impacts the planet and people. Our number one goal is high-quality and personalized service.
