  VISION

Alter Experiences LLC is a nature & adventure travel company based in San Diego. We're dedicated to creating meaningful experiences in nature & getting people outdoors.

We currently manage several sites in the Cleveland National Forest & in Baja California.

Our glamping retreats are nestled in the high mountain forests of San Diego's backcountry - sky islands where pristine nature & wild-life thrives. These are some of the most remote & biologically diverse habitats in all of Southern California.

Our sites in Baja are along the majestic Sea of Cortez - one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats on the planet!

Each one of our sites is handpicked to offer you a truly nature immersive experience. We strive to create the most comfortable outdoor experiences, even at our most remote locations. We take all that's fun about traditional camping & combine it with modern comfort & state of the art equipment.

We offer various accommodation styles depending on location. Our Tentsile tree tents are definitely the most popular - a lightweight tree house that uses 3 anchor points to create a "living space" suspended between trees. Our elevated tree tents bring a whole new dimension to camping.

Our plush & cozy bell tent was designed with the ultimate comfort in mind! It feature all the amenities you can expect at a hotel & has become known as our signature outdoor hospitality experience.

Our Hacienda in San Felipe is located in a very safe and gated community, with access to pools in walking distance. We're right in the heart of San Felipe next to various restaurants and the San Felipe Brewing Co.

ELEVATE YOUR CAMPING EXPERIENCE

We set out to create a hotel standard hospitality experience in very remote destinations, with a zero-impact policy to the surrounding environment. We wanted to create unique & comfortable spaces in pristine natural habitats, which would totally re-define camping & the outdoor experience.

The result was a sustainable business & tourism model, which encourages environmental stewardship & responsible tourism practices.

RELAX. EXPLORE. ENJOY. WE TAKE CARE OF THE REST.
