We Craft Experiences

Leave the planning and logistics to us and make lifelong memories. We’re very proud of what our adventurers have to say about us!

Alexis and the AA team got us there, planned the perfect day for us and helped us make the most of our day in the wild! We would have never seen Pinnacles NP in such a fun way without Authentic Adventures!

We made memories on the San Joaquin River that we’ll hold dearly forever. Authentic Adventures tailored the trip for our group, and helped our 13 person group feel confident and like real explorers. Our organization will be back!

From Chicago, IL to Yosemite NP — we didn’t know where to start. We had a couple days and chose AA to help us get the most out of our trip to Central California. We saw everything Yosemite Valley had to offer!

I don’t know how Alexis knew about this Wildflower Wonderland, but we joined a group trip to see hills that looked like they were a painting! We made friends in our group we will stay in touch with for life. Thank you Authentic Adventures!

Central Valley & Sierras expert tour guide

Hi, I'm Alexis! I'm so glad you're here.

My passion is to explore everything God created for us and help you do the same. I love building community and have developed some of my strongest friendships through outdoor activities. I love rock climbing, kayaking, hiking and camping.

My background is Recreation Management and Tourism with emphasis in Therapeutic Recreation. I've spent over 15 years working with individuals with disabilities helping them in their leisure pursuits. I believe that everyone should have access to outdoor recreation and I've spent the majority of my career ensuring that.
