London - Denver: two return flights to be won
Friday 28 March 2014
Denver is the road to the Rockies and the ultimate destination for anyone who loves adventure in the great outdoors. But there are some things you might not know about this Colorado city…
Founded in the Gold Rush when the first flakes of this precious metal were found in the South Platte River, Denver, has been attracting visitors ever since – but not just for the spectacular scenery and adventure offered by the majestic Rocky Mountains.
Denver is home to world-class museums, art galleries and theatres. It has a thriving street market and café culture - each neighbourhood has its own distinct vibe. From Cherry Creek, with its independent shops and brand-name stores, to the historic and hip LoDo with its vibrant nightlife, flourishing live music scene and comedy clubs.
Undeniably, the climate and scenery make Denver the ideal destination for those who love the outdoors. Denver is the gateway to the national parks, blue lakes, worldfamous golf courses and mountain resorts. It’s a great fly-drive destination - you can even drive all the way to the top of Mount Evans or relax in the hot springs.
Icelandair flies from London via Iceland (with an hour's transit time) to Denver and is not just more refreshing, it's more affordable, too. You can add Reykjavik as a second city destination for no additional airfare and save £54 on air passenger duty.
We've teamed up with Icelandair to give readers the chance to win two return flights from London to Denver to visit this stonishing city.
