GAIA WILD began as a way of life; one that breathes discovery, connection, and an appreciation for wild places. After years of exploring the ruggedness of Mother Nature, I began to realize its true synergy. We are all a part of the wild; we can all walk the path of the elements and be a part of the rhythm of the world.


Our guiding services are more than an adventure of thrill and sightseeing, they are an interconnected experience between all group members. Being a guide isn’t about how many followers you can inform, it’s about how many leaders you can inspire. This is the philosophy we use to cultivate meaningful adventures, and rewarding accomplishments. Whether we are trekking on the coast, climbing into the heart of the mountains, or exploring on the water, we are always guests and must respect our host, GAIA.
