Colorado Backpacking

Rocky Mountain Magic


These amazing trips are sure to give you a taste of a “wilder side” of Colorado! Our trips are designed from our in-depth local knowledge and our 20+ years of experience guiding backpacking trips on seven continents. No one else knows Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) better than we do. We are now booking for summer 2024.

Join us in 2024 as we design our guided adventures from solo adventures to groups of 12 or more who want to explore the wilderness with the knowledge and expertise of a professional guide. Our expert guides are trained in wilderness education and safety and provide an in-depth understanding of the geography, history, wildlife, and vegetation of the local area. We will plan an itinerary that meets your group’s goals and objectives. We have a multitude of different backpacking trips and locations from which to choose. Whether your focus is on wildlife viewing, majestic vistas, geology, or fly fishing, we can design a trip that exceeds your dreams. Your itinerary will also be based on your group’s time requirements, physical fitness level, and desired level of exertion or challenge. With our ability to create custom trips maybe you could try whitewater rafting after your backpacking trip or a day of climbing before you hit the trail.

Participants will not need technical gear. Your group will receive roundtrip transportation to/from Boulder, Denver, or Estes Park, Colorado, and your expert local guide will remain with you from the beginning of your backpacking trip until the end. These trips are all-inclusive. We are a one-stop-shop and the only guide service legally operating in RMNP that is also authorized by the State of Colorado and the National Park Service to transport passengers within the Park.
