This was awesome and unique at that!!! Wolf, the Austrian mountaineer, makes your four-hour adventure wanting another! We went in about 10 miles of very rugged terrain and he explains plants, history, wildlife, stops for photo ops and brought us to a lake at the top of the mountain, where we got out and took a walk. All the while, he shares stories of nature, survival.....he's quite the entertainer; he yodels!

We ended up near the lake where we enjoyed a picnic of fresh fruit, nuts and lemonade, which he provided, complete with the red and white checkered tablecloth on the back of his jeep! He's very neat; even wore gloves to prepare our picnic. He also provides blankets while in the jeep and you can tell they were clean.

Talk about being relaxed.........feels like you're so removed from civilization - nothing but nature as far as the eye can see. I love being outdoors, but at the end of the day, I need a hotel room with running water and a bathroom. Because Wolf is so passionate about what he does, I and the other three in our party, got so immersed in details and stories. It so happened that our tour was on the last day of vacation and in hindsight, we would plan it that way again. The "hectic-ness" of the week's day trips melted away, literally listening to nothing but nature and our own voices. It was a great way to end our vacation!

Go Wolf!!! A great mountain jeep tour!!!!

Great jeep tour with the Austrian, Wolf. He was so knowledgable and made sure that we learned things as we were enjoying the beautiful scenery. His personality made the trip, especially his yodeling!

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.
