Leadership, adventure and friendship are the goals on our three-day backpack through Colorado's soaring Rocky Mountains. Rugged peaks and high-country meadows provide a pristine backdrop as we learn backcountry skills, get to know each other and embrace the spirit of the West! Bold Earth's Bike Hike Raft is the premier Colorado Adventure Camp!
We push west from Colorado into the desert of Utah, where Westwater and Horsethief Canyons stun the senses with a mix of whitewater, red rock and endless blue skies. Our three day rafting trip down the Colorado River combines thrilling rapids with an amazing perspective of the magnificent sandstone formations near Moab. Exploring Colorado and Utah on an epic Colorado Adventure Camp!
After getting off the river and freshening up we prepare for the world famous Arches National park. At arches we will hike around unbelievable sandstone formations, and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. To cap it off we will hike up to the famous Delicate Arch for sunset!
Next is an epic three-day mountain bike trip in Colorado's majestic Western Slope, where local guides show us the secrets of mountain biking atop the Grand Mesa. This supported mountain bike adventure is exclusive to Bold Earth! For 25 years, we have owned a Special Use Permit in this protected area, allowing us unparalleled access to a myriad of shimmering lakes and world-class trails! This is not your average mountain bike camp - this is way more fun! We end our adventure by giving back at Rock Bottom Ranch. We learn about agriculture and ranch life, then lend a helping hand.
All Bold Earth trips give back to the beautiful places that we visit. On Bike Hike Raft we contribute at an environmental education center with emphasis on agriculture that raises animals and reclaims land near large wilderness areas with huge wildlife corridors. During the summer we will work with staff in gardens, wetlands and other environments to restore wilderness areas and preserve ecosystems.
Time between trips is fully supervised and included at no additional cost.

Bold Earth's Bike Hike Raft was without a doubt the best summer of my life! I have only been back a few days but I'm already booking flights to see the friends I met. Though I was only gone two weeks, I feel like my trip mates and leaders are my family. I really feel like it changed me into a better person - I am much happier and more independent now. I would recommend Bold Earth to literally everyone; it was worth every penny.
