Colorado is a paradise for outdoor family adventures, with trails, activities, and excursions for all ages. What better place to teach children to love and cherish their wild outdoor surroundings? We have a diverse selection of activities to choose from including camping, hiking, backpacking, sightseeing, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, biking, and fly fishing, Families learn to challenge themselves, learn about the natural world, and have an experience that they’ll talk about for years to come.


Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides specialize in custom and private outdoor family adventures, with activities for all ages, from the littlest ones to our senior guests. We’ll show you Colorado in a way that very few others get to experience, as our experienced and enthusiastic guides entertain you with stories about the history, culture, and geography of our beautiful state.

With Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides our goal is to create moments that are uniquely Coloradan, from backpacking through Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking through Boulder’s iconic rock formations, or a bike ride down the Switzerland Trail. Any one of our trips may be customized by age and ability level. Even if you’ve never hiked, fly fished, or mountain biked before, we’ll get you on a tour that’ll be safe, fun, engaging, lightly challenging, but most importantly guarantee smiles.

Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides takes all the guesswork out of your trips, providing the permits, the gear, the instruction, and the know-how to make your outdoor family adventure an unforgettable experience. We’ll even set you up for some truly unique family photos. What better way to celebrate Colorado than showing off that fish you just caught, that wall you just climbed, or that perfect campsite we found in the backcountry of Rocky Mountain National Park. We’re here to be your guides but we’re also here to be your companions.

All of our trips are private and custom, ensuring a fully customizable trip for your family. We would be more than happy to tell you about our options, events, and itineraries and would be more than happy to see you or speak with you about our trips.
