Our mission

We help people live courageously. From the trails of the Hudson Valley to the wilderness of the American West and the summit of Kilimanjaro, Discover Outdoors has guided all over the world. In fact, just about the only place we won’t take you is your comfort zone. Our challenges, physical or otherwise, are designed to expand what you thought was possible. The adventures we embark upon reward teamwork and true connections with one another. The environments we explore hold treasures for those who invest the time to appreciate and protect them.

Our team

Discover Outdoors guides are leaders in their communities. They hold the highest certifications and set the industry standard for wilderness guides. Boundlessly capable and caring, our unmatched team is motivated most by what they see in you.
