Increase happiness and cognition
Science has proven outdoor experiences are therapeutic for our mind, body and soul.

Affordable, turnkey adventure trips

Experiences are managed by professional staff so you can save yourself the headache of planning, organizing and communicating the trip.

Door-to-door Transportation
Instead of driving all across Texas, get picked up and dropped off by a private driver at the location of your choice.
All meals cooked and prepped
Don't worry about packing food or cooking in the wild. Your trip leader will make sure your belly stays full.
A price you'll love
An elevated experience for a fraction of the price.

An adventure type for everyone.

We want you to know what you're getting into so trips are rated based on difficulty levels described below.
Camping Retreat

Fun and relaxing camping trips that anyone can participate in. We'll setup your tent, cook your food and organize a variety of rejuvenating activities. Not actually a backpacking trip.

Backpacking Trip

Rugged and challenging backpacking trips for people looking for full immersion into nature. We'll still cook for you but you've got to setup camp. Will require hiking several miles with gear.

Advanced Excursion

Extreme adventure only for those with strong outdoor skills. We will provide supplies like food, water and transport but you'll need to survive on your own otherwise.
