The experts who lead Aspen Walking Tours blend history, research, and cultural anthropology in a trio of informative strolls, nourishing the minds of tour-takers with local factoids. These guides quarterback small groups during each trek through time, imparting stories and tidbits that they've researched themselves. The Aspen's DarkSide tour unearths the area's ghastly past, rife with ghosts, murder, and mayhem, and the Aspen's Past to Present tour details Aspen's evolution from a modest mining camp to world-famous resort. In the fall, rather than wearing shoes whittled from dry ice, visitors can experience real chills with a spooky saunter through the Ute Cemetery—Aspen's first burial ground—during the Walking with the Dead tour.

Mountain-bikers cruise down unpaved roads past llama ranches. All these Colorado adventures are accessible even to first-timers and youngsters thanks to Blazing Adventures. The company was spawned on the whitewater in 1973, and today, its guides lead outdoor activities suited for all ages and adrenaline-tolerance levels.

On the more relaxing end of the spectrum, there's the Backcountry Sunset Dinner. As the colors of the setting sun paint the mountains, groups gather around a campfire for live music, s'mores, and a dinner fresh off the grill. The dinner can easily cap a day of adventure, spending it winding through high mountain passes in a fleet of Jeeps. At the other end of the spectrum is the company's half-day "Slaughterhouse Raft" whitewater excursion, which tests experienced rafters with a Class IV course along the Roaring Fork River, dotted with boulder gardens and a six-foot waterfall drop. Whatever the adventure, all of the guides keep things safe with their numerous credentials, including certifications in first aid, CPR, and stealing fire from the heavens.

With the lapping of river tides as its soundtrack, the state-certified guides of Breckenridge Adventure Tours lead groups during private, all-inclusive expeditions into the wild. The passion they exude is helped along by the drive of owner Eric Carlson, who has spent the better part of his life exploring the outdoors. Such know-how comes in handy on rafting adventures, such as whitewater runs atop the Colorado and Arkansas Rivers, and on fishing trips, which bend around the skills of both beginner and advanced anglers. Together, Eric and his team enrich trips with their knowledge of local history, flora, and fauna that demonstrates their vast experience and direct access to Mother Nature?s journal.
