Meet your Guide


Christie Sondrup
Lead Hiking Guide and SUP Instructor


Hi, I'm Christie!

I was born and raised here in "Colorful Colorado", and have been leading backcountry hiking and paddling tours across Alaska, Utah and Colorado since 2013.

I have a degree in Outdoor Education and am a certified Naturalist, Wilderness First Responder, ACA Level 2 SUP Instructor, Leave No Trace Trainer and NAI Certified Interpretive Guide.

I've traveled to 15 countries to date, have summited two stratospheric volcanoes, went skydiving solo for the first time in Hawaii on Friday the 13th, and love to get out on the water every chance I get.


I look forward to taking you on some of the most epic hiking & paddling excursions in Colorado.

Book your tour with me, and I'll lead you on an adventure!
