Welcome Passport member! Looking for your next adventure? You came to the right place! Originally from New Zealand, through the years we've extended our playground to South America, the Himalayas, Europe, Africa and more recently, North America. We believe that you can't truly experience a country through a bus window, or on the tourist trails that you read about in Lonely Planet. Sure, we'll include some of those 'bucket list' hikes and locations, but we're all about getting 'off the beaten track' and up close to the culture and people that make a destination and travel experience so special.

Bryce Canyon & Zion Adventure - June 2024

AMAZING!!!!

"What a fantastic trip with Austin Adventures to St. George, Bryce and Zion! Our guides Nicole and Jenny were the best of the best. Everything from accommodation, to meals, to activities were so well planned and thought out. The scenery was beyond my expectations. Hopefully burned into my memory for a lifetime. The photos just don't do these majestic places justice. HIking, biking, kayaking and rapelling were all such fun, some days more challenging than others! The weather was HOT! 100-112F most days, but the girls were so prepared with water, and their "salty" snacks and making sure everyone took adequate breaks.I applaud them for always carrying extra on their own backs, that could not have been easy in the heat. The drives were entertaining and the music was plentiful and well chosen!! We an AWESOME group of 10, which totally contributed to the trip being as wonderful as it was. Not often do people gel as we all did. Thanks again Austin, you've outdone yourself with this one. (Pair those 2 girls up again, they worked super well together!!!!)

Yosemite

"This was our first trip with Austin Adventures as a couple. We were matched up with two really fun couples from the Boston area, and unbeknown to us, we shared mutual friends.

It was a well planned trip to the Yosemite National Park with fantastic guides who worked very hard to make each day special. I travelled with my legally blind partner, who is an avid skier and hiker. Without really having to ask, our guides quickly adapted to her unique needs and made her experience even more exciting and memorable. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to our guides Joel and Kevin.

Yosemite Adventure - May 2024

Great Experience!

"We had an awesome visit to Yosemite! It was our first time on an Austin Adventures trip, and our first time visiting Yosemite National Park. The park is beautiful, and our guides (Kevin and Joel) did a great job of showing us the best the park has to offer. My favorite day was our hike to Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls along the Mist Trail. There was a huge rainbow spanning the valley just below the first set of falls that made it feel magical. I also really enjoyed our first experience rock climbing. Each day and each experience was thoroughly planned by our guides, making the week even more enjoyable.

Yosemite Adventure Lives Up to Hype

"The adult tour of Yosemite we recently went on lived up to and exceeded all of my expectations. The scenery and views were breathtaking, the hikes were challenging, the rock climbing was an unexpected fun activity that was a blast. The guides, Kevin and Joel were courteous, considerate, fun and knew how to make our trip extra special. By the end of the week, they felt like friends, not our guides. This is my second Austin Adventures trip and will certainly not be my last.

Long awaited and surpassed expectations

"I thoroughly enjoyed my adventure to Yosemite NP with Austin Adventures!! Our group leaders (Joel and Kevin) treated us with royalty! ...including the 'Red Carpet'!!! The 'home cooked lunches' during our adventures were out of this world! They handled even the most difficult of situations with poise and grace. Our group of twelve were more like family! We laughed together! Helped each other! And made decisions that suited everyone. The accommodations were superb! The meals delicious...with lots of good choices too.
The hiking and climbing schedule/plan was perfect. Every day was filled with beauty and wonder from the MANY cascading waterfalls to the thick forest and sequoias.
