What is Yervana?
Yervana is an app and web-based platform connecting adventure-seekers with locals who live for the outdoors–so you can spend less time researching what to do, and more time outside doing what you love.
When you download the iOS app or join our community through the Yervana website, you’re instantly connected to tons of Adventures led by knowledgeable local hosts, ready to share their passion for the great outdoors with you.
Launched in Vancouver BC in 2018, Yervana was designed to reflect the west coast outdoors lifestyle. We’re a growing community of adventure-seekers, outdoor enthusiasts, wanderers and explorers. Instead of scouring websites for ideas or going through a hotel or tour guiding company, you can connect directly to the best local outdoor activities, trails and hidden local gems using Yervana. Search, discover booking and pay for one-on-one or small-group outdoor adventure activities with locals, directly from your mobile device or laptop.
To explore our Adventures, create an account and book today! Yervana features hiking, biking, trail running, snowshoeing, kayaking, backcountry skiing, rock climbing and more!

Try an Outdoor Adventure with Yervana
We have assembled some of the best adventures led by some of the finest locals in the area. Here is a small sampling of adventures to try:
Squamish is home to some of the best hiking trails in the Sea to Sky Corridor! I would love to find the trails that give you the best adventure – steep and rocky reaching majestic vistas, or flat and easy trails along the edge of pretty lakes.
Hike through this water sculpted canyon in the heart of the Canadian Rockies below the towering Grotto Mountain. This family friendly hike leads up an canyon scoured white by flood waters, past pictographs, water or ice falls and interesting rock formations such as Hoodoos!
