Exhilerating Off Road trails all around
An out of the way location
In a nutshell
a little piece of the past
Open at night, depending on the season. There's little to do in Ouray at night, so soaking in the hot springs under the stars on a clear night is about the best plan. See Must See Activities for contact info

Switzerland of America’s Jeeps do not have the heavy duty manufacturing package that other Jeep rental places in Ouray have; their tires are not as high quality as those used by other rental places; and they are aggressive in charging extra at the end of the day for any lateness, scratches and other cosmetic defects. Therefore, they are significantly more expensive. To top it off, their owner’s son who manages the place is surly, belligerent, and completely lacking in warmth or gratitude to his customers.
Don’t rent from Switzerland of America. Instead, rent from other rental companies in town because they are less expensive, kind and cheerful, and have better Jeeps with larger and better tires that are expressly made for off-roading and keep the Jeep higher off the ground.

They are polite, cheerful, have superior Jeeps and tires, and are ready to pounce on their late fee.

Photo Equipment: Camera with extra memory cards or lots of film, extra batteries, telephoto lens, tripod.
