I can't put into words how much I enjoyed the trip and what it meant to me. I went into it wanting to see the Everglades and do something a little different, and I came home to find that I am just so excited about my life and all the possibilities that lay ahead for me. I did learn a few things about myself and a few of you (in our group) touched me very deeply.SD - Everglades NP
Paddling and Hiking Vacation in the Adirondacks - Naturalist-led Adventure TravelI had a really wonderful time. Thanks again for renewing my love for hiking and birding. I can't wait to hike again soon. If you ever wonder if your work makes a difference, you do not need to look any farther than me.CC, MA – White Mts, NH

Do you want to take a trip but don’t want to deal with the organization, the planning, logistics and all of the details? Details, details, details…that is what JGO is all about. Our Naturalist Adventure Tours will provide an opportunity for you to experience the many nuances and treasures of your destination, whether it is in the mountains, on a pristine wilderness lake, in the unique saw grass marshes of the Everglades or elsewhere. We take care of all of the planning and logistics so that you don’t have to! While on the trip we provide all transportation, all meals, professional, fun-loving guides and the opportunity to be physically active in beautiful locations. JGO provides a second guide for larger groups. Our guides are trained in CPR and Wilderness First Aid and are dedicated to providing you with a safe, enjoyable, and unforgettable trip.

If you like to meet new people, eat well, laugh a lot, enjoy outdoor activities, try new experiences and learn a thing or two, JGO has a trip for you!

There is no better way to spend time away from life’s day-to-day responsibilities than to spend a week exploring the natural history and cultural history of a new region and to eat well while doing so. Whether we eat out to enjoy the local flavors or we prepare the meals for you, JGO provides savory food, which is a very important component of any and all of our adventure tours!

Having your own naturalist guide on every trip offers special insight and a unique experience. You’ll learn to use all of your senses, sometimes nibbling on berries, smelling wonderful fragrances, seeing the many small details along with the grand vistas, feeling a soft breeze on your face, and listening to the many wonderful sounds of nature.

By limiting our group size to a maximum of 12 participants, we can provide a more intimate and personal experience for everyone. Spending a week together in the outdoors can strengthen bonds between friends and family and often creates many new friendships as we play, laugh, exercise, and eat together.

Spending time in the natural world helps to renew the mind, body and spirit. Our trips provide an opportunity for you to immerse yourself in your surroundings, to spend time with friends, new and old, and to have some quiet time on your own. So leave your daily stresses behind and join us for a rejuvenating outdoor experience!For those of you who already have a group together and are interested in your own private outdoor adventure, we’ll set up a customized tour just for you.
