Serving Vail, Beaver Creek, Avon, Copper Mountain, Frisco, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Leadville. Locally owned and operated, Nova Guides and our professional staff are committed to providing our guests with outstanding customer service and memories to last a lifetime.

Through our outdoor recreation experience, we have established a well-developed and wide-ranging scope of activities. Our summer activities include Jeep tours, ATV tours and rentals, side-by-side tours and rentals, and guided fishing. Operating under special permits in and around the White River National Forest, our access to remote and scenic areas is unsurpassed by any other outfitter. This expansive territory gives us tremendous versatility and the flexibility to customize any trip to our guests’ abilities and personal preferences.

What sets us apart from other outfitters is our facilities at Camp Hale. Boasting a 6,000-square-foot lodge and our own signature restaurant, we are able to serve lunch along with our morning Jeep & ATV tours, or offer buffet and plated dinner options for larger groups. Located in the heart of Camp Hale, former training grounds for the 10th Mountain Division, we are surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and rich cultural history. We also offer rental cabins onsite with extraordinary views and access to trails right out your front door.

Our qualified, year-round guides are ready to give you the experience of a lifetime. Whether you are learning the basics of casting a fly rod for the first time or climbing to 12,000 feet on an ATV, our knowledgeable guides are sure to provide a safe and extraordinary experience that you’ll never forget!
