Why Blue Marble Adventure GeoTourism?


Ask yourself a simple question:  is your adventure the best that it could be?

The Vision and Mission of Blue Marble Adventure GeoTourism:

To create an exceptional atmosphere of adventure and education for our guests and employees, and to provide for the enrichment of their life experiences by creating a unique meeting place between geology and wild adventure. 

Each of our hiking adventure vacation options includes the same vision and mission:  We will exceed expectation in 5 key areas of your travel.

1. Safety:

Our guests and employees saftey is our top priority on every adventure.  Though there are no guarantees in Mother Nature, our staff is trained and certified in CPR and First Aid.  Our guides carry fully outfitted first aid kits, extra water, and are experienced navigators with maps, GPS, and compasses.  Dependent upon the trip, our guides may also have advanced certifications such as Wilderness First Responder, Swift Water Rescue, or National Outdoor Leadership degrees.  We operate with the idea that a safe adventure is a grand adventure.

2. Accommodations:

All of our multi-day adventures come fully equipped with high-quality tents and excellent sleeping pads rented from trusted gear outfitters.  Our basecamp adventures will even include personal wash/shower stations, and our guides are fully trained and outiftted with the necessary tools to help inexperienced backcoutry travelers maintain a certain standard of personal hygiene.  Our luxury tours take this to an entirely different level, with the most comfortable accomodations one can experience in the backcountry.

3. Food:

Few things in life are as satisfying as a home-cooked meal and a cool beverage after a long day of adventure. Our menus, regardless of trip type, are planned by a professional chef, and our guides are trained to perfectly execute and prepare these dishes on your trip.  The founder of Blue Marble Adventure GeoTourism is a trained chef in addition to being an expert geologist and wilderness guide, and has written a backcountry cookbook from which each of the meals on your trip will be prepared and served. Expect filling, healthy meals with fresh vegetables, fruits, and proteins each day. Snacks are available at all times. Should you have any special dietary needs or restrictions, they can be easily accommodated; just a word in advance is all we need to help you with your needs.

4. Guides:

Our lead guides are geologists with at least a Bachelor of Science in geology from an accredited university, as well as certified in CPR, First Aid, and if necessary, Wilderness First Responder or other necessary certifications based on your trip.  They are carefully chosen based upon their expertise in the area of your trip, and will ensure your every need is satisfied.  The rest of our crew, should your adventure require one, will ensure that each and every one of our guests' desires are met in a timely, professional, and personal manner.

5. Education:

Getting a first-hand perspective of the diverse geologic and cultural history of the unparalleled landscapes to which you will travel adds a layer to your adventure that you may have never even imagined. Veteran adventure travelers know that a fulfilling and memorable vacation goes far beyond gorgeous vistas.  Our focus on the landscapes and how they were created, along with knowledge of the flora and fauna you will see will create a incredibly satisfying feeling as you reflect on what you gained from a tour with Blue Marble.
