Natural Habitat Adventures

Guides & Staff

Like you, our home office team believes nature is vital for our souls, our health and the health of our planet.

You won't find more avid nature and travel enthusiasts than our Boulder, Colorado office staff, committed to providing you with the most extraordinary nature expeditions on the planet. There are two main facets to our work: 

— to create and fine-tune the world's most unique and exciting nature adventures
— to help our travelers choose the trip that's best for them

As the winner of Outside magazine's award for the best company in the country to work for multiple years running (we are humbled!), we can confirm that there is absolutely no crew of individuals more enthusiastic about their mission than our Natural Habitat Adventures staff. We get to travel the world regularly, exploring the world's most amazing natural places. We each have a deep passion for helping our guests discover their own inspiring nature travel experiences. And, if all that does not keep us motivated, our boss, Ben, buys us lots of beer and pizza. Mostly beer.

Get to know us by reading our bios and viewing our personal travel slideshows!
