Guides & Outfitters in Fort Collins

Guides & Outfitters

So you're ready to get out into the Colorado wilds, but you're not really sure where to go, or you don't have the right equipment with you to shoot the rapids or hit some singletrack. That's where the services of an experienced outfitter can be invaulable. Fort Collins Convention & Visitors Bureau partners can rent you equipment from snowshoes to kayaks and give you lessons on how to use them properly and safely. They can arrange trail rides and cattle drives for that authentic Western experience, or guide you to that secret pool where the wily trout lie in wait to strike the fly at the end of your line.
