Rare Earth Adventures
Rare Earth Adventures' staff of outdoor guides leads clients on expeditions through the scenic wilderness of the Pacific Northwest in hiking, mountaineering, rock climbing, and snowshoe treks. In addition to year-round voyages near their home base in Portland, they steward a variety of international trips, leading guests on sojourns to the jungles of Thailand, the volcanoes of Mexico, and the airports of Maine.
Those hoping to demystify the backcountry on their own can enlist in one of Rare Earth's many educational programs to improve their outdoor acumen. Rather than attempting to quell an upset stomach by asking a bear for antacid tablets, guests can become their own doctor by gaining their wilderness medicine certification or learn to avoid unsafe situations while completing the outdoor leader certification.
