Hello from Good Trip Adventures!
We hope this message finds you all happy and healthy! We are excited to introduce ourselves, though many of you know our team – Megan Kennedy, Tyler Tennant, and Lauren Skonieczny – from our work together at Discover Outdoors, where we were lucky enough to share some of our favorite National Parks and destinations with thousands of travelers.
Where one door closes…
As we all know all too well, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on our industry, bringing operations to a halt for most of us and our colleagues. It’s a time that has forced many to re-evaluate their businesses and plans for the future. For our team, that has involved some tough decisions.
After a change in ownership last year, we began to reevaluate the direction of Discover Outdoors. Originally, our plan was to develop several new, independent companies over a longer period of time. However, due to the impacts of the pandemic, the owner of Discover Outdoors made the decision to cease operations in early April.
Using this as a natural transition point, the staff and guides accelerated our plans and have created a new company – Good Trip Adventures! Although it’s not the start we had in mind, we are so excited for this opportunity to continue providing trips as a sustainable and inclusive operator.
So, what is Good Trip Adventures?
Well, we’re a tour company that is run by the people who know clients best – guides! Together, our leadership team has over 25 years of experience in the industry from operations to customer service to safety and fieldwork. We know our destinations inside and out and are committed to providing the highest quality experiences for you and your guests.
Driven by doing good
Most importantly, we’re a company that’s going to play a part in shaping a better world. Through a focus on sustainability, inclusivity, and support of local communities, we’re encouraging people to travel better – to seek experiences that are fulfilling, fun, and educational.
When it is safe and responsible to travel again, we’re confident that the hunger for exploration will be stronger than ever. People will be longing to connect to one another and to their world in meaningful ways, and we cannot wait to help them do just that.
In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you! If you’d like to set up a call with our leadership team to answer any questions or learn more about us, you can do so here.
