As a New York State Licensed Hiking Guide, FAA Licensed Drone Operator, and avid photographer, Brian is able to create a unique hiking and outdoor experience catered to exactly what you are looking for in an adventure. With most tours beginning just 2.5 hours from New York City, our trips offer a great way to escape the hustle of the city and unwind or challenge yourself in nature within the Catskills State Park or Adirondack Park.
Whether you have summited in the Himalayas, or are just thinking about getting into hiking, we can accommodate all skill levels, and will cater to your specific needs. Whether you are more focused on the flora or the fauna, the geology, adrenaline, relaxation or history – we will make your day/weekend one to remember.
All of our experiences are scheduled and insured through the AirBnB platform. Our founder, Brian James, is an AirBnB superhost who has served over 300 guests in both his home and on our flagship tour of the Waterfalls, Mountains and Valleys of Upstate New York. In addition to guidance, Brian provides incredible photography along the way – both from the ground and the air. Its like having a professional photographer follow you around on your adventure – helping you get that perfect shot for the ‘gram.
Brian focuses on tailoring each and every tour to the desired level of adventure and exertion of each group, as well as providing either informational or more fun and comedic guidance guiding along the way – all while keeping you safe and immersed in nature.
In addition to the different tours and packages below, please feel free to ask if you have something else special in mind – from birthdays, anniversaries, family outings and surprise gifts, I can create the perfect hiking experience for you.
