Our mission is to bring you to significant places – like a museum outdoors, not just travel destinations. Ancient culture, wildness, history, science, mysteries to move your soul.
Meet the Owners
Mountain Man Journeys are led by scientists, historians, photographers, naturalists, etc. Local experts may be brought in for a particular destination or talks/conferences or otherwise, bringing unique knowledge to our 400+ “near secret” destinations.
If it matters to you, it matters to us. Let us make your memorable Journey.
- Guide gives context, perhaps using storytelling or dramatic interpretation. Challenging you to go back in time. They are NOT there to give a pitch, answer a few questions and take pictures of you with trees!
- Journey may blend exploration, classroom, historian, detective, field work, even a little bit of escape room! You are encouraged to be a highly active participant, placing yourselves in that time, imagining what it was like, the harshness, the beauty, the life of people over 10,000 years ago, for example. We are rarely in a hurry.
Our primary offering is Journeys. Deep, immersive, thought-provoking experiences … often to near-secret places. A Journey can be a spiritual pilgrimage or perhaps it is a 60 year old former astronomy major who never went into the field, but still burns with interest. A museum collects artefacts; we take you to actual sites with significance. Most of our 300+ “proprietary” destinations are surprising and bucket-list worthy. Sites of mystery, archaeological, scientific, cultural and historic importance.
Our mantra is to ReDiscover Your Wild Side. Modern people have lost the endurance, vision, spiritual and communal nature of our hunter/gatherer ancestors. Across multiple Journeys with us, we seek to reintroduce our clients to the raw beauty and significance of the wild. We are pale shadows, filled with stress, low energy and cut off from our past. While others drag you to locations for you next Instagram photos, sojourn with us and find your lost world.
