Over the past 4 years, a lot of things came together at very precise moments for us to be here today. This was all just a dream once upon a time. We wanted to live very intentional and purposeful lives. There came a moment where we finally decided to pursue that ideal, come what may.

This is how our lifestyle business ultimately came to be. One of our greatest passions has always been nature and culture travel. We always saw travel as a vehicle for breaking down cultural barriers, bringing people together and re-connecting with natural environments. We were also very inspired by the culture of eco-tourism, minimalism and responsible business models, which we encountered throughout our travels abroad.

Bell Tent at Laguna Campground 2020

Despite facing many new challenges last year, including being closed for about half the year due to COVID-19 lock downs, construction work and then the Valley Fires closures - we’re pleased to report that we had our best year on record nonetheless.

It was a back to back onslaught that we couldn't have prepared for, while we reached peak growth and visitor demand.

We’ve seen our highest demand ever in 2020 and that momentum has continued into 2021. We were projecting very strong months even in December and January, which are historically low months for us due to the cold and weather.

Well we've been back in action to another fully booked weekend after a month closure due to the recent fires. It never gets easier. 30+ cancellations during peak season, issuing refunds or rescheduling and not so happy glampers.

One of the best ways to have a little adventure out in nature is to go hiking. Whether you’re alone or with a group, going on a hike is a great way to get some fresh air and get the blood pumping.

However, it’s not that easy to go from being deskbound all the time to going uphill on a steep trek. So, if you’re a complete beginner to hiking, or an old hand who has fallen out of practice, you can use the following to get back into shape and get hike-ready.
