What you'll do

I'll start by picking you up from the Boulder Public Library. Then we'll leave the hustle and bustle behind as we take Boulder Canyon Rd through the mountains to Sugarloaf. Feel free to ask me any questions about the area or my experiences, I love sharing!

Next, we'll summit Sugarloaf via the Switzerland Trail, getting into the nitty-gritty of Overlanding. We'll put on the 4x4, conquer the terrain, and get some amazing panoramic views. When we reach our final overlook destination, we'll break for snacks and a photography session. I'll take portraits and drone selfies for you and your whole party with a beautiful backdrop of the Rockies.

Next, we'll take a less rugged drive down to Nederland, a small mountain town known for celebrating Frozen Dead Guy Days, for a coffee or bathroom break before driving back down to the Library.

If you're pregnant, have anxiety, have small children, or have a fear of heights, I would abstain from booking this experience. The ride will be rough and we might have to tackle certain situations. If you have concerns about whether or not this experience is for you, contact me.

I've been doing 4X4 rescue for over 5 years in the U.S. and 5+ years in India. Beyond that, I'm an active outdoor enthusiast and have camped almost everywhere in Colorado with my trusty Tacoma.

Back in India, I biked the Himalayas for over 40 days, camping off my motorcycle, and fell in love with the rugged terrain. But don't worry, we won't be roughing it. My excursions are designed to be fun, respectful of nature, and full of scenic views!

The Boulder-Denver area is one of the best areas I've had the pleasure of offroading in, and years of passionate exploring has given me an intimate knowledge of the best off beaten paths.

What an excellent experience! Both my wife and I had such a great time with Pratik. His off-road driving allowed us to visit parts of Boulder that we would never have been able to reach on our own. He made us chai at the top of a mountain, and provided excellent narrative and great conversations. The more than five hours with Pratik flew by—we would recommend this experience as an absolute must do while visiting Boulder!

Wow, what a fantastic experience this was. Pratik was a phenomenal host and made our entire trip to Boulder. He was conscientious and aware of any potential concerns we might have had regarding off-roading (which he handled spectacularly and with expertise). He even took the extra steps to make our time with him extra special for our anniversary. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough— the views were breath-taking, the chai tea delicious, and the camaraderie extremely memorable. 5 stars doesn’t do justice to how great of a time you will have with Pratik. Please reward yourself and your travel companions, and take your time in Boulder to a new level by booking this experience!

A magical day. My three teenager kids and I were in awe! The places we went to were gorgeous. The views, the vibe, the road to each place. Pratik is one of those pure and gentle souls that are still left in this world. He’s welcoming and makes you feel like family as he shares a peek of his life with you. His passion and love for the outdoors and respect for Mother Nature are refreshing. You’ll be lucky if you get to meet him and spend a day with him. And the pictures he takes!!!! Thank you Pratik for sharing the magic with my kids and I.

for my birthday this year I want Pratik's tour! :-) well, I'm actually serious. I've done restaurants, bars, beaches, parties, all that is way too familiar. This year I planned a 3 day gateway in Colorado.I thought I was doing great with my own sightseeing and that's till I experienced Pratik's tour, where he took me on the most scenic spots! even though I can't stand cold weather, I was staring in awe at the mountains, the sky, the whole picturesque view. I could feel how my body was getting recharged. He took hundred pictures ( I kid you not). All I wish I had few other outfits ))))

Could not recommend this experience enough! We had an amazing day venturing into Sugarloaf Mountain with Pratik, exploring the most magical places we would have never been able to get to or navigate on our own. He is so knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and takes great care in personalizing the experience based on your preferences and the weather conditions. It was snowing in the mountains during our trip, which made the experience even more magical. Pratik maneuvered over the snowy terrain easily and we felt extremely safe the entire time. There were so many special touches that made the trip unforgettable -- a pit stop at a bar/cafe nestled in the mountains, delicious chai tea at the top of Sugarloaf, and amazing photos/videos taken by Pratik throughout the journey. Book this experience. You won't regret it.
