Guided Colorado Backpacking Tours – Explore the Wilderness Over Multiple Nights
If there is anything that Colorado is known for, it’s the legendary backpacking routes and the extraordinary wildernesses that we get to explore. From Rocky Mountain National Park to the Flat Tops Wilderness, backpacking in Colorado is a unique experience, where we can combine hiking, peak ascents, fly-fishing, and rafting into one trip. Start in Rocky Mountain National Park where we’ll get to explore the various districts of the park, from Big Meadows, which is perfect for families and children, to Wild Basin and Mt. Alice, one of the most famed and secluded 13ers in the park. Outside of Rocky Mountain National Park, we can also hike and camp in the Indian Peaks and Flat Top Wildernesses. The Indian Peaks have a ‘locals’ flavor, as they are relatively unknown to outsiders. The Indian Peaks feature stunning alpine lakes and waterfalls as well as a spectacular mountain skyline. The Flat Tops Wilderness, set near Steamboat Springs, features a set of extraordinary mesas, with unique formations such as the precarious Devil’s Causeway and the Chinese Wall, which add a whole new dimension of uniqueness. The Flat Tops also feature dispersed camp locations, which makes it perfect for fly-fishing in sparkling lakes and creeks throughout the region. While you’re in the Flat Tops, add on a full day of rafting on the Upper Colorado River, which will take your backpacking experience to the next level.
