Meet the Colorado Team

Ian Taylor

I am Ian Taylor and with my wife Laura are the owners of Ian Taylor Trekking. I am from Leixlip, Ireland, but have made Colorado my home for the past 10 years.  In 2008, I became the youngest Irishman to climb Mount Everest.  My climbing partner and I set out to climb 4 mountains on 4 continents, culminating with Everest, in order to raise the funds to build a school in Uganda.  Since then, I have been lucky enough to climb around the world and lead others to reach their own summits.
