GREAT DIVIDE EXPEDITION
Based in the Front Range of Colorado, Pangaea Expeditions is lucky to have the Rocky Mountains as our "back yard". With convenient access to more than 20 million acres of public land in the state of Colorado, there's limitless adventures to be had from an afternoon out to week long adventures in the mountains.

The concept of the Great Divide Expedition was popularized in 1989 when Land Rover launched the Range Rover in North America by traversing Colorado. The original route was the brain child of Land Rover legends Bill Baker, and Tom Collins. While this original route is no longer possible to replicate due to now closed routes (most significantly the closoure of Needle's Eye Tunnel at the top of Rollins Pass) there are still hundreds of miles of off-road trails who's challenge is surpassed only by their jaw-dropping scenery.

As we have a chance to write more about the Great Divide and our many times traversing it, here's a gallery of highlights of from some of our previous expeditions.

Overlanding and four wheeling are frequently not a means unto themselves but serve the purpose of getting us into remote locations for other activities, like fly fishing in impossibly beautiful canyons.
