Beyond the Ordinary: Spice Things up with a Wilderness Experience

Beyond the Ordinary:
Spice Things up with a Wilderness Experience

       So far, you’ve traveled to the world’s most exquisite destinations. Sooner or later, you seek to escape the confines of conventional high-end travel and experience uncharted territory… like a backcountry adventure in an iconic national park.

The Explorer’s Dilemma: Adventure vs Comfort

The Explorer’s Dilemma:
Adventure vs Comfort

       You’ve encountered a unique challenge. You desire a wilderness adventure without the hassle of planning it or giving up comfort.

       Pre-arranged travel options typically don’t mix adventure with luxury, and planning such a trip yourself takes time and effort. The complex logistics, from getting permits to choosing a trail, are a far cry from the comfort and simplicity you prefer.

       How will you take the road less traveled and still have a seamless experience?

You Deserve More From Your Next Adventure

       Looking over other people’s heads or standing in line for a photo makes your adventure far from unique. It strips away the essence from what could have been a memorable journey.

       When you go on a national park vacation with a typical tour company, they take you to overcrowded tourist hotspots.

I’m Jesse, your backcountry concierge & guide

       I will personally plan your trip and lead your group into the backcountry so that you get a rich experience most tourists will never get to see.

Your Experience With Me:

1. Hassle-free Travel: Before the trip, you will save time by having everything planned for you. I will eliminate the complexities of securing permits, packing gear, and planning meals.

2. Your Concierge in the Wild: I will support you in the background with camp setup and cooking while you enjoy the adventure of a lifetime with your friends.

3. Off the Beaten Path: I will guide you through the untouched wilderness of the national park of your choice to the hidden gems that most people miss.
