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.
Other things to note
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.

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.

My 2 friends and I booked this trip because our 1 friend broke her foot the day before our trip to Colorado and we couldn’t go hiking. Turned out to be blessing in disguise!!! We would have never explored this option and this trip with Pratik beats hiking ANY DAY. I am SO happy we stumbled upon this Airbnb experience. Pratik is an amazing guide. He takes you to some of Sugarloaf Mountain’s hidden gems. He makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. He’s so knowledgeable about the area and is a very interesting person to get to know. We felt safe the entire time even though my one friend is a little more anxious about driving in the mountains. Pratik is a true expert (and excellent photographer). Thank you so much for the unique experience. I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone.

Wow wow wow!!!! If you’re on the fence about doing this experience, I am here to say that this was so much better than my 2 friends and I could have expected. We booked this trip last minute before our trip out to Colorado when one member of our party broke her foot and wasn’t able to hike. Pratik made the trip very personalized, providing snacks and water for our ride up into the mountains and giving us the absolute best views for the entire afternoon. Our highlights included stopping at a small local cafe at the top of the mountain, Pratik making chai while overlooking the sugarloaf mountains, and just chatting as the day went on! Pratik makes you feel like family and truly made our experience to Colorado so enjoyable!! 5 stars all around

AMAZING SPECIAL EXPERIENCE!!! I am so happy that I chose Pratik’s Scenic Overlanding up Sugarloaf Mountain! I can’t say enough about how gracious Patrik is ... It felt like spending the day with a favorite friend who enthusiastically showed me the special sites that only locals know about with the best views and fun trails ... and taking great pictures all along the way AND with a drone session at the very top of the mountain (FYI: Pratik is a great photographer). Patrik often checked in with me about my comfort level, needs, and willing to taylor the adventure to make sure I was enjoying myself and the tour. Definitely “5 STARS” to Patrik’s tour!
