Everyone should take at least one hike in the giant, snow-capped Rocky Mountains—and why not let a sturdy, exotic, and personable pack animal carry your gear? On a guided backcountry llama trekking trip, you’ll discover one of the grandest mountain playgrounds in the world. Camp out in tents or sleep in the cabins and lodges of the 10th Mountain Division Hut System, a legendary network of rustic accommodations in Colorado’s high country. You’ll hike stunning sections of the Colorado Trail, right beneath the Continental Divide. ($1198 for 3-day llama trek; paragonguides.com)
