About Denver Adventures

Denver Adventures was founded in 2005. The adventurous activities are spearheaded by the company’s founder, Stefan Van der Steen, an outdoor adventure enthusiast with a dream of bringing people closer to the outdoors in a fun and active way. The Rocky Mountains close to Denver are the perfect platform for easy access to a wide variety of terrain and natural scenery to suite anybody’s needs. Every one of our adventures invites you to enjoy and use nature’s wonders but at the same time respect, admire, and learn from it. Our team of experienced guides has had more than its fair share of enjoying the Rockies. Over time, they all have built extensive knowledge of physical exercise, altitude, trails, parks, and natural attractions but are also active participants of races and volunteer efforts. Stefan, for instance, focuses on endurance events such as The Triple Bypass, Ultra100, Olympic distance triathlons, marathons, and even an IronMan! Denver Adventures was set up to provide hassle-free, tailor-made, adrenaline-fueled adventures. Denver Adventures is run by extreme sports enthusiasts specializing in ziplining, hiking, mountain-biking, rock climbing, snowshoeing and whitewater kayaking. We are passionate about sharing our love and enthusiasm for adventure with other thrill-seekers like you…

Should you send your child to a kids camp this summer?

Here are some guidelines [...]

NOT ALL ZIP LINES ARE CREATED EQUAL!

Before you book your zip line adventure, make sure you know what you sign up for. Outfitters can build and operate a variety of zip lines based on topography, budget, and course design. Essentially, there are 3 types of zip lines: towered, canopy, and ground-to-ground. The "sport" of zip lining started with canopy tours in Costa Rica. Canopy tours mainly take place in a densely forested, jungle-type environment where zip lines are strung between large trees. Participants spend the entire tour on [...]

To Zip Or Not To Zip In The Winter

Traditionally, ziplining has always been a "warm weather" activity especially with its roots in tropical climates such as Costa Rica. However, we feel that is only half the story when it comes to zip lining in Colorado. With 300 days of sunshine, the winter months offer plenty of opportunity for a very unique outdoor experience in the Rocky Mountains. People ski and snowboard in temperatures far colder than the temperatures we get in the Front [...]
