About Us

Who we are

Rare Earth Adventures (REA) was founded in Portland, Oregon in 2006 on the belief that we can provide everlasting experiences with top notch guide services. The goal is to find a custom way to experience the vivid life of the outdoors, and to be apart of those rare moments where the noise of everyday city is muted. We are a fully-insured, licensed, and registered Oregon Outfitter/Guide company, as well as a member of the Oregon Guides and Packers Association. We are permitted in several location including but not limited to;  Mt. Hood National Forest, Gifford Pinchot National Forest (Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helen’s), the Columbia River Gorge, and the Olympics National Forest.

We want to share these incredible landscapes with you and give you the opportunity to experience them in a way that is uniquely crafted to your idea of an adventure. Come capture the most breathtaking photos of the sunset from above the alpine, or lay under the crystal clear skies and star gaze. We strive to create those moments that you will always remember and tell your friends about.

Our pledge: To create the best experience possible for you; provide experienced, trained, and professional guides who take delight in sharing the awesome outdoor experiences with you. What experience can we create for you?
