Hiked with Outspire as a solo female last November. We hiked from rim to Rio Grande and back out just outside Sante Fe. A primary reason I booked with Outspire was that they don't inflate prices for solo travelers like other outfits. Outspire's website gave me ideas for possible hikes, but Karen was open to additional thoughts/suggestions, too. Paid for... More

My husband and I went on the sunset hike. Karen did a fantastic job organizing everything and making sure we were comfortable. Her knowledge of the plants we saw along the way made the hike very interesting. The scenery was beautiful and we will definitely be coming back!

What a wonderful hike we had with Karen of Outspire Hiking. She was able to share so much local history, science and nature gems right at our feet. I think we would have walked right by so much on our own. We will definitely be contacting her for our next visit to the Santa Fe area. Karen was organized, prepared,... More

My experience with Outspire was truly superb, from beginning to end. From submitting my initial request on their website to the hike itself, Karen and the staff at Outspire really made for a unique and personalized experience. When I submitted my request online, Karen called me shortly after to learn about what I wanted to get out of the hike... More

I had an outstanding experience with Outspire. Planning was easy. Karen was prompt in her replies and she planned the perfect trip for me. Larry was my guide for the trip and he was well prepared, attentive to my needs and caring. He facilitated a great day that I will remember with profound gratitude.

We did two hikes( one sunset and an all day hike in Bandelier National Monument) with Karen and were not disappointed. Making our plans by phone and email was easy since Karen responded quickly to both.She is quite knowledgeable on the history and geology of the area. We really were pleased that she was able to assess our hiking ability... More

My husband and I were attending a conference in Santa Fe and wanted to hike and enjoy the outdoors. I emailed Outspire and was immediately contacted by Karen. Karen asked many questions about our interests, our athletic abilities and expectations, etc. She then offered some wonderful options and hooked us up with Larry, one of her wilderness experts. Larry was... More

We booked a hike over the phone with Karen before traveling to Santa Fe. Our guide was Scott, and we could not be more pleased. Scott (and Karen) did an excellent job of narrowing down several hiking options for us to consider. Scott was sensitive to our age (mid 60's) but did not treat us like senior citizens. We did...
