For $85, today's side deal gets you an overnight camping trip in Rocky Mountain National Park, including a guided hike with breakfast, lunch, and dinner (a $284 value), from Apex Ex, formerly known as Natural Fitness Guided Adventures. This Boulder-based adventure travel company was featured in National Geographic Adventure for its hiking and skiing trips.

The Rocky Mountain National Park Longs Peak Summit trip includes all the encouragement needed to climb Longs Peak, the tallest mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park. While no technical climbing skills are required, the trip does call for a high level of endurance and some comfortable hiking shoes.

Meet your knowledgeable and trustworthy guide in Boulder (or another predetermined location, based on participants’ needs), where he or she will transport you to base camp at the bottom of the mountain to set up shelter. Dinner will be cooked and ghost stories shared, and then it'll be time to snooze under the mountain stars. In the morning, a hearty breakfast will be provided and the summit climb will commence. Hike through spectacular scenery until hunger sets in one final time and a mid-hike lunch break is taken. Once the peak's panoramic splendor or thinned oxygen has taken your breath away, you and your fellow climbers will head back down the mountain toward camp, returning around 4 p.m. Call ahead to schedule your trip; you can also arrange a less-challenging hike if desired.

Camping equipment is available to rent for an additional charge.

Reviews

Apex Ex, when it was known as Natural Fitness Guided Adventures, was featured in National Geographic Adventure for its skiing expeditions:

  • To ease logistics, enlist the pros from Boulder-based Natural Fitness Guided Adventures, who will help you attack long chutes and 1,500-foot couloirs or do some mellow powder skiing on the shoulder of the summit ridge. – Robert Earle Howells, National Geographic Adventure

Apex Ex

The mountain-savvy staff at Apex Ex equip people of all skill levels with the knowledge, gear, and plans necessary to explore the wilderness all year round. Seasoned guides and instructors, many of whom are trained by organizations such as the National Outdoor Leadership School and the American Mountain Guides Association, lead classes that teach students important lessons ranging from backcountry snow basics to avalanche rescue. In summer months, the experts lead guided climbing and backpacking trips and teach riders to careen down rocky paths of every sort during mountain-biking lessons.

Excellent guide and great experience. Would highly recommend!
Megan B. · September 15, 2016
Great guides, great fun. If you're looking for a strenuous workout, this isn't it (from perspective of a reasonably fit 50-year-old), but it is a good walk at altitude in a beautiful environment with good people.
Mark H. · February 23, 2016
Definitely a fun time. Would have liked to do more advanced course. Definitely want to come back.
