Founded by two intrepid brothers more than 25 years ago, our company has adventure etched into its DNA. And though we began as rafting experts, we’ve evolved to integrate authentic cultural, culinary and family experiences into our journeys. Through our years of experience as passionate pioneers, we have crafted fun and inspiration, learning and safety, plus flexibility, into everything we do.

We grew out of sustainable practices and our belief in family values, naturally integrating them everything we do. In our world, everyone benefits positively.
