Rocky Mountain National Park is 102 years old this year, and REI Adventures turned 30.

The outdoor travel company is celebrating by offering a $500 discount on six-day hiking and rafting trips this summer to the Colorado park.

The deal: This trip is all about the natural wow factors: alpine lakes, waterfalls and peaks in the Rocky Mountains. Participants hike daily, camp by night (gear provided) and spend a day rafting the Cache la Poudre and trekking to the top of Deer Mountain.

Group size is limited to four to 12.

Tested: There’s still availability on these summer trips. REI members pay $2,299 (instead of $2,799) and non-members pay $2,599. (Lifetime memberships cost $20.)

The price includes campsite and gear (including cushy thick sleeping pads), guides, round-trip transportation from Denver, some meals and park fees. Airfare to and from Colorado is extra.
