California Custom Adventure Tours
California evokes thoughts of sunshine, wide-open farmland, mountains that scrape the sky, and sparkling beaches. The Golden State offers seemingly endless open space, from the vales of the Sierra Nevada wilderness to the hidden coves of the central coast.
Weave among vineyards and farmland as you explore the heart of the state by bike, or backpack Yosemite National Park and imagine the bewilderment of the miners who came west hoping to strike gold and found themselves at the mercy of these rugged mountains.
California has been called the land of opportunity and when it comes to adventures possibilities abound. When the weather turns cold and gray on the coast, head inland and explore mysterious and otherworldly Death Valley National Park. Have something else in mind… biking Napa Valley, multi-sport vacation on the Central Coast? Give us a call!

Frequently Asked Questions
How does planning a custom trip work?
On each adventure trip that we lead, our goal is always to provide the most memorable and personal experience for each of our guests. One way to do this is by creating a custom trip or tailoring an existing itinerary to suit your travel style. It’s simpler than you think.
Step 1: Call us!
Give us a general outline of your adventure vision, including your group size, the time of year or exact dates, the location(s) you’d like to travel, activities that interest you, and any special requests.
Step 2: We create your personalized itinerary and estimate of costs.
Keep in mind that it is a “custom trip proposal” and you may change, modify, add, or subtract anything you wish until it suits you and your budget perfectly.
Step 3: Hit the trail!
…or singletrack, or river, or sit on your chosen lodge’s veranda with a perfectly chilled beverage, learn all about the flora, fauna and geology – let our world-class guides help you create a life-long memory.
Can we reserve and customize one of your regularly scheduled dates exclusively for us?
Yes! As long as there are no other customers booked on that date – it is yours and we can modify it to suit you.
Is there a minimum or maximum amount of people for each trip?
We can accommodate groups ranging in size from 2-60 people.
Is it more expensive to do a private or custom trip?
Not necessarily – there is no additional charge for a custom or private trip. However, pricing varies greatly and is always dependent on a number of factors such as group size, activities selected, accommodations preferred, special requests, and trip duration – all of which are under your control and at your discretion.
Can we alter one of the example itineraries or standard trips you offer?
Yes, absolutely! The itineraries listed here are only intended to inspire you and show you what is possible. We will propose your own trip just for you! All of our trips can be extended, shortened, combined or modified however you wish.
Can you do a trip in a location that you don’t talk about on your website?
As long as we have expertise in the area you have in mind – no problem. Even if we don’t we likely can work with one of our partners to create just the experience you have in mind. Want to join your favorite AOA guide rafting in Chile? We have just the trip for you…
