WHAT IS A SELF-GUIDED WILDERNESS TRIP? 

We do the logistics; you do the adventure. Trips of any kind require planning: location, transportation, food, etc. These trips we all remember and love, yet aren't there other places in this world that we rarely experience but often dream about? These gems are harder to discover and access, and, quite frankly, the time required to plan these trips is significant enough to stop the planning before it begins. Let Wild West Ventures, LLC plan your spectacular Colorado wilderness hiking and camping trip in all its particulars! Furthermore, rather than hire a mountain guide to lead your way, we empower you to guide yourself.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Decide between Signature and Custom trips.

2. Choose Pro Package or Ultimate Package.

3. Get your spectacular trip plan!

Signature vs. Custom trips

 

Signature trips are our classic Colorado backpacking trips that have already been planned and scouted. These trips may include different options, but have set distances and locations. Choose a trip that suits your schedule and ability level.

 

 

Custom trips are, as the name implies, built custom to your specifications. We guide you through choosing a Colorado mountain range, trip length, difficulty, and more.
