Ethos Statement


Guineafowl Adventure Company respects, reveres, and ultimately relies on the great outdoors. We thereby recognize the need to adamantly and routinely examine our relationship with the planet and our impact on it, both as individuals and as a business. We are dedicated to ensuring not only that the physical goods we supply to hikers are sourced ethically and sustainably, but that our guides are held to the highest standards of environmental stewardship and responsibility.

We also realize the need for ongoing education in addition to accountability, so we’ve committed to abide by Leave No Trace principles, on our tours and in our personal lives, both in the backcountry and front country. With our company's growth and as our cultural/scientific understanding about conservation evolves, we promise to continuously adapt, remain open to learning, and take measurable action for the greater good of planet earth.

Last, we promise to hold space for inclusivity and equity in the outdoors. Nature doesn’t discriminate, and neither do we. We welcome people of all walks of life, birthplaces, colors, ages, and lifestyles to explore the mountains with us or without us (however they choose).

Our Partners

That’s why we’ve intentionally partnered with merchandisers, suppliers, equipment manufacturers and other related businesses that align with our beliefs about conservation and environmental stewardship.
