Kelly created an amazing experience for a day-time Bachellorette Party. We started with paddleboarding, moved on to horseback riding and finished it off with a wine and cheese picnic. It was perfect! And the best part was that I didn't have to stress about planning anything -- Vela Adventures took care of it all. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for some fun.

Brooke and Laura (Vela Concierges) created the perfect day of showshoeing and fondue! We had great weather and all I had to do was show up. 18 wonderful women and everything was so organized, snowshoes all setup, food and everything. I would definitely do something again with Vela! Great day!

Vela Adventures is a fantastic way to get outdoors with your girlfriends and have a truly memorable experience! Not only did Heather and Kelly make sure we were pampered from the get-go, but they also thought through every little detail; making sure things were well organized and running smoothly. From the decorated table at Evergreen park, to our favorite coffee drink, to the fun and engaging guides, we felt like royalty! If we had to shed a layer, they were there to carry it for us; if someone forgot to bring their snack, they had packed extra; and if we needed a cold beverage, you best believe they had that too.
Even as the wind picked up and the temps dropped, they made sure our fondue experience was just as grand. They had warm blankets for us to cuddle up in, delicious cider, customized wraps from Whole Foods, and of course mouthwatering fondue! I couldn't have asked for a better bachelorette outing. Thank you for the lasting memories, Vela!

It was a day in my life I will always remember! The feeling of sitting on the top of the rocks on such a beautiful day after having stretched personally to do something I never thought I would be doing – well it was the best! Thank you for the opportunity Vela.

Did a Ziplining & Beer Tasting outing with some friends, and now I consider Kelly and Heather friends too! They thought of, and took care of, every single detail so you don't have to think about anything except showing up and having fun!! They even photograph the entire event so you don't have to lug your camera around and try to find a safe place for it while you are participating. Kelly and Heather are sweet, friendly, welcoming, personable and so fun and have so many exciting adventures to choose from. Regardless of the activity you choose, Vela provides the opportunity to have an enjoyable, active and exciting girls day out and meet other great women. I will definitely go back to Vela and highly recommend it to all women of all ages.

Can't say enough good things about Vela. Exactly as advertised! I did the SUP event this week. Went to a beautiful lake in Longmont and entire day was super fun. We all got up on our paddle boards and then had a hour of yoga followed by lunch (cloth tablecloths and napkins!!) and then a cute ice cream truck stopped by for our dessert. Very organized and I felt completely taken care of. Will definitely do another activity with Heather and Kelly.

I would actually give Vela Adventures 10 out of 5 stars. They didn't just deliver the promised coffee, paddle boarding, yoga and lunch but so many above and beyond touches. They are AMAZING. I will go again no question!

I absolutely love Vela Adventures! The owners Heather and Kelly are super amazing, sweet and fun! What they offer woman is a unique way to network and create new friendships while bringing woman together for memorable times. I was new to Colorado without family or a lot of friends and heard about Vela Adventures through a friend. What better way to connect and meet cool woman than through awesome activities and shared interest! Thank you Vela, I look forward to more adventures with you in the future!

I did the Camp Vela Standup Paddleboard/Yoga/Beach Party and it was a blast! The instructors were excellent and Heather & Kelly (the owners) are fun, very professional and had everything well planned. They had our Starbucks order ready for us in the morning. They provided snacks, drinks, and sunscreen throughout the day. Then lunch and ice-cream at the end. It was a fun outdoor adventure but you also felt very pampered! I can't wait until the next one!

Fantastic! I took part in a super fun day of Stand-Up Paddle boarding & Yoga with Vela Adventures. From start-to-finish the entire experience was so well organized and easy. Kelly & Heather (owners) are total pros -- everything is planned out including transportation, morning coffee orders, all supplies & guides needed for the activities, gourmet lunch and dessert, plus all the little things like plenty of sunscreen, towels, snacks, waters, etc.
I had never tried Stand-up Paddle boarding before so was a little nervous about what to expect but ended up loving it! The personal guide for the group was experienced and knowledgeable and made it so easy for everyone. She also showed several advanced moves for those in the group who wanted a challenge. The yoga session was also very enjoyable, located outside under a beautiful shade tree with a soft breeze blowing. Challenging, yet relaxing all at the same time! Thanks Vela - I'll see you on a future adventure : )

We went on the snowshoeing and fondue adventure and we could not have asked for a better time! Kelly and Heather are so welcoming and professional. They want to ensure everyone has the best time possible! It was such a great adventure and I would recommend them to anyone who is up for a great time - adventure edition!

Last week I went on my first adventure with Vela - indoor skydiving and archery, I had an absolute blast and I'm already planning my next excursion! Heather and Kelly from Vela plan the entire trip including lunch and all the essentials. They are extremely friendly and make everyone feel included. Such a fun event and they documented it all so we could send photos to friends and family. I love Vela!
- Laura, Denver, CO
What a great day! I participated along with my coworkers, in a day filled with archery, followed by lunch and an afternoon at the spa. Heather and Kelly went above and beyond in taking care of our every need and preparing a wonderful experience for us. As a woman who works full time, has 3 teenage boys and runs around with her head chopped off most days, it was nice to slow down, feel pampered and most importantly accomplished. It was a wonderful environment to learn something new along with my coworkers and I highly recommend Vela Adventures, they are all that they say they are!

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience the rock climbing adventure was! It was not only exciting and extremely fun, but very well-planned and executed. I couldn't have asked for a better or trust-worthy guide as Colin, either! Both Heather and Kelly are so warm and inviting, that I just can't wait to sign up for my next experience with Vela Adventures!
- Lesley, Denver, CO
I participated in an archery class with Vela Adventures and had a fantastic experience! I've always wanted to try archery lessons and our instructional class did not disappoint. I walked in with zero experience and after an extremely fun and interactive day I walked away with full confidence that I now know exactly what I am doing! It was a great bonding experience with a new group of ladies that felt like my friends by the end of the day! I will definitely sign up or another Vela Adventure soon!

As a mom of two busy boys, I don’t often get to try a new activity or sport, so when I heard that Vela Adventures organized sports outings for women, I was all over it. Kelly and Heather were 110% committed to personalize and make this outing all about me. Not only did they facilitate transportation, but they also provided snacks and lunch after the activity. They also had a hot beverage waiting for me when they picked me up, which was a nice touch! All I had to do was to show up and they took care of the rest. As it turns out, I am quite a natural at Archery… who knew? And the nice bonus; my kiddos thought I was “pretty cool.”

So much fun! Just did the horseback riding/spa day. What a great way to meet new people and get to do something new. Heather and Kelly are so pleasant and professional. Highly recommend any of the adventures!
- Stefanie, Denver, CO
Going horseback riding for the first time in 30 years was a bit worrisome for me. Once I took off with the Vela Adventure gals on a very docile horse named Butter, I had a truly super experience. Early morning coffee from Starbucks and a delicious after ride lunch rounded off a great morning. I would recommend this adventure to gals of any age.

What a great concept - such fun outings for women! I had an amazing time indoor skydiving and archery and I won't soon forget it. The two ladies who started this company are brilliant! This is a necessity for all women to try.
