About Eric


Eric Malmborg created Bolder Adventure Travel to pursue his passion for inspiring people to lives of adventure. Born under a wandering star, Eric commits his life to traveling, teaching, exploring, and guiding all over the world.

For ten years, Eric served as an instructor and course director for the Colorado Outward Bound School, leading summer and winter mountaineering courses, as well as courses in the Canyonlands of Utah. He taught history at the Steamboat Mountain School in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, heading up their outdoor program and teaching rock climbing and cross-country skiing. He also designed, organized, and led students on annual trips to Europe, North Africa, Asia and South America.

An accomplished athlete, Eric has competed as a nationally-ranked Nordic ski racer and has cross-country skied across Finland, from Russia to Sweden in the longest ski event in the world. He has finished the one-day, 120-mile Triple Bypass road cycling event three times and completed numerous, multi-day mountain biking trips.

Eric has traveled the world from the Indian Ocean to the Caribbean, pursuing his love of fly-fishing. His favorite leisurely pursuit is creating, developing, and completing bucket list trips for himself and others.

Eric shares his passion for travel and adventure with his two adult children, Rachel and Ben, who continue to travel and study abroad and whose lives are continuously enriched by these experiences. You might even find one them helping out on a Bolder Adventure Travel trip!

After 25 years of working in the field of organizational development, Eric is excited to share his passion for unique and authentic travel experiences by helping his clients plan the adventure vacation of their dreams.
