No words can really describe this experience. Wolf has lived in Vail/Beaver Creek for 50 years. He took us on a back country road to a deserted mining camp. The road was impassable except for 4 wheel drive vehicles. There were no telephone poles in sight. The aspens were beautiful but the knowledge that Wolf had about the vegetation made my eyes focus on plants I never would have noticed. Wolf was also a wealth of knowledge about the medicinal value of each of the plants. A fact I will always remember is the explanation on the eyes on the Aspen trees. He also taught us survival skills that would be very helpful in any hiking situation. We were provided a nice snack at trails end before we headed back. The most amazing part was Wolf's stories about being one with nature. He is living what he preached and his passion was inspiring. This tour was on his wedding anniversary and he was so immersed in our tour he was running late. A must do tour in the Vail/Beaver Creek area

We were vacationing in Beaver Creek last week with friends. They had been on a few tours with Wolf and they thought we would enjoy the experience. He picked us up at our condo and we spent the afternoon riding in an open air jeep up a mountain on narrow dirt trails. It was fantastic! He was so interesting and we learned about the area, the plants, trees, wildlife and he even touched on some basic survival training. He loves the mountains and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. He also knew exactly where to stop for some great photos and the views were breathtaking. On our way down the mountain, Wolf stopped to help another tour guide who was having a problem with his jeep. He found the problem and the other guide was able to get his jeep running. We were so impressed with his thoughtfulness and we were very happy that he was our driver.

If you are looking for something to do in the area, I would highly recommend a Wolf Jeep Tour. He is delightful and has the knowledge and experience to give you an unforgettable day in the Rocky Mountains!

Yesterday was perfect in every way. We signed up for a jeep tour in the Rockies. I expected to see aspens turning, to learn about the flora and fauna and to take some spectacular pictures. we got that. But we got so much more. The Mountain Wolf was our guide. Lithe and fit, ski instructor by winter, jeep tour driver by summer, naturalist, survivalist, herbalist. Austrian, yodeler, mushroom man and probably the most content but excited to be alive person I have ever met. He connected with all of us instantly. He entertained us with stories and yodeling. He taught us all those things I expected. But there was more. A deep seated spirituality that could not be contained. Instead it was shared with each of us. Our connection with this planet and all of its forces unfolded throughout the day. He reminded us that nature's gift is in the now. It was a cherish every moment kind of day and a reminder to live life free and wild with child like wonder and exuberance.

Met Wolf at 8am all bundled up ready for our jeep your up the mountain- I have never met someone who knew so much of the history of the area. He described all the plants and trees that we saw. As a survivalist he was so knowledgeable- if I had to choose between Wolf and Bear Griles - sorry Bear! The Wolf has it hands down! It was the best day ever!!

An experience of a lifetime! Open air Jeep tours of deep inside the Vail mountains. Jeep / ATV trails barely wide enough for one car. Wildlife viewing, detailed accounts of all the plant life around the trail - edible and inedible plants, what grows here and what grows in each season. Needless to say, Wolf is a naturist and loves the natural beauty and is at home there (it is his office!) Stopped many times to pick up trash, beer cans and such along the way. Spectacular views from the side of the mountain. Hold On! It gets bumpy. Enjoy the ride. Bring sunscreen, rain gear, a hat (that won't fly off in the open air Jeep), and your camera. Door to door pick-up. Snacks such as cantaloupe, granola bars, cut apples (by Wolf's pocketknife), lemonade, everything organic. Quiz Wolf on how to feed your life the natural way.
