Take the Trips You Dream Of with the

Colorado Mountain Club!

The Colorado Mountain Club takes active travelers to the world’s incredible destinations -- America’s and Canada’s Wilderness; the peaks of the Andes, Alps, and the Himalayas; Africa’s national game parks; and the exotic trails of Australia, New Zealand, and Iceland.


CMC Adventure Travel trips are educational, cultural, and eco-sensitive, led by experienced leaders who know their destinations. Adventures range from easy walking, hiking, cycling, and skiing to challenging climbing, hiking, mountain biking, and backcountry skiing requiring good physical conditioning, skills, and training.


Prices range from budget-conscious to custom upgraded adventures, and small groups provide the highest quality experience.
