Who says you need a significant other to do cool things? Not us! We believe in making new friends, doing fun things, and getting outside. We want to give you a chance to step out into nature and explore in a relaxed, inviting setting. 

This is not a dating service. We encourage you to come with an open mind and see what happens! Our goal is to inspire you with the natural world and provide a unique opportunity to meet amazing, like-minded people while doing something a little different. We know this will be an unforgettable experience.
