Our family had a fantastic experience with Scott, who took our family hiking through Bandelier. He was extremely informative in many subject categories pertaining to the area, flexible regarding our objectives and a very nice guy. The excursion was well organized and communication before we met up was excellent. I definitely recommend Outspire and will use them again next time... More

Scott crafted an outing for the two of us that could not have been better. We love the outdoors and hiking but some of our physical limitations can get in the way. This hike was off the trail, full of interesting geology and archeology, tons of human artifacts and Scott was so considerate of our particular needs while insuring we... More

My family had a wonderful hike in and on top of the canyon with Karen. We saw and experienced things that we would have never been able to do on our own.

Scott was our guide on a hike at Tsankawi in the Bandelier National Monument Park. He was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the history of the area, but about the geology as well. Since my 19 YO and I had never been to this area, it was really interesting to hear about it and see some of the artifacts that... More

Karen created a custom experience perfectly suited to my wife's and my interests and inclinations! A wonderful day hiking out to the end of a Mesa... finding ruins of Pueblos and their tools and blades... Happened upon (of course Karen planned it all along) a rock-lined pit about 4' deep on the edge of a cliff -- any guesses? A... More

Karen was a perfect guide for us as snowshoe novices. The gear she provided was top notch, the location was prestine, and the instruction just right for our skill level. We found her knowledge of local lore most enjoyable. We recommend Outspire without reservation. Bob & Twyla Doty

If you are looking to add a trip-into-the-past type adventure to your visit to Santa Fe, be sure to plan a hike with Outspire. Once contacted, our guide and owner, Karen, customized a Mesa hike for us based on our interests, skill level and time-frame available. Our hike took us to several scenic wide-open views with some mild climbing and... More

I had the opportunity to do a day hike with Karen and Outspire. Not only was the scenery gorgeous and awe inspiring, Karen was a wealth of knowledge and history. A trained Biologist, Karen had answers for all my questions and I felt like I was in a science classroom getting an immersive experience. I can't say enough about the... More

My family and I have now hired Outspire twice, first for a trip to Bandelier National Monument (with Dene) and second for a hike along Buckman Mesa (with Scott). The main reason I wanted to use guides is that we are from out of state, and I was worried about getting lost. However, Dene and Scott brought so much more... More

My two friends and I have been meeting in Santa Fe once a year for the past 7 years and always look for something new to do when we are in town. Karen did a great job of finding the perfect hike to fit our interest and skill. She showed us some wonderful petroglyphs and was very knowledsgeable about the... More
