Elevate your Summer with Cliffside Camping in Estes Park
For adventure seekers looking for an epic experience, the Airbnb Adventures Collection offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to camp overnight in a sky tent, on the face of a Colorado cliff.
Both challenging and rewarding, the 24-hour excursion is sure to get the heart pounding.
Campers begin by meeting at headquarters at 11 a.m., where the host goes over equipment and other important information. They are then transported by van to the trailhead in Estes Park.
Once the hike starts, it typically takes about an hour to reach the base of the cliff. When guests get to this point, they have the choice to either climb up to the cliff campsite from below or take the easier route by hiking to the top and then rappelling down with ropes to the location.
Then it's time to set up the sky tent right on the face of the cliff and learn all about living in a vertical space. The spot is known as Deville Rocks and is in a secluded area near Rocky Mountain National Park.
The following set-up is few hours of downtime, where campers have the chance to explore and choose between different activities like bird watching, climbing, or just simply relaxing.
The evening is capped off with a delicious dinner, and finally settling in for a night of amazing star gazing in the sky tent.
Campers can wake up whenever they want the next morning, and enjoy breakfast and coffee, before rappelling back to the ground and returning to headquarters.
The host explains that campers don't need much experience, but do need to be in relatively good physical shape to participate. All technical equipment is provided, the only things campers need to bring with them is a backpack and clothes.
The cliffside camping starts at $940 per person.
