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 professional 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…
In college Abby began working at her childhood summer camp, and fell in love with the Outdoor Profession. After graduating she left her home state of Ohio to explore the great outdoors living and guiding along the east coast. Needing a change of scenery she ventured west to answer the mountains call. When she is not outside on some adventure; she enjoys exploring/creating new recipes in the kitchen.
I’m most alive when I’m trekking my way through the trees or standing on top of a mountain and I love sharing that kind of experience with as many people as will let me! Besides hiking I enjoy playing ultimate, snowboarding, painting, and meeting new people. Can’t wait to seeing the look of pure joy on your face as you fly through the trees!
I’m a beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog! I LOVE coming to work and meeting new people! You can find me on the patio taking a nap or in the office getting a ton of attention. I LOVE to be pet by everyone that walks in the door. My favorite season is winter, because I love playing in the snow! If you are missing a glove, I probably came along and took it. That’s why they call me Bandit!
