      Back in 2001, we set out to create an adventure travel company that really meant what it said in terms of customer service and experience. On our very first trip, we sweated over every possible detail to ensure that not only did everything go to plan but that we exceeded expectations and delivered a truly memorable wilderness experience. That focus and attention to detail remain the cornerstone of what we continue to do today.
