About The Adventure Collective

We like to think of ourselves as a collection of people, information, and organizations with adventure at the core.  With the focus on localized adventure guides, The Adventure Collective is a resource aimed at getting more people outdoors.

Our Philosophy

While we aren’t sure if The Adventure Collective will end world hunger, we do think we are heading in the right direction in getting more folks outdoors. We decided to use the word ‘collective’ with the goal of creating a body of work that brings together a collection of people, information, and organizations with adventure at their core.  In the end, The Adventure Collective is about the people that contribute and use this resource.
