As a starting point, all Locals need to have a minimum of 20 hours in Wilderness First Aid training. Additional certification requirements depend on the activity and area you’re hosting in. Submit an application and our team will look into the other certifications you need.
As a small business, you already have the necessary certifications, insurance, and permits to host your Adventures. Yervana needs copies of these for our records and to verify they are valid.
For small businesses and professional guides who already have insurance, we take a 15% fee on all completed bookings.
For individuals hosting Adventures, if you don’t already have your own insurance, we charge an annual administrative fee of $250, plus 25% on all completed bookings. This goes towards the cost of listing you on our insurance policy that covers you for front country activities. Our team can give you more details on this when you submit your Local application.
Yervana caters to Explorers looking for local, active outdoor Adventures. We encourage our Locals to be creative when they’re building Adventures. Yervana Explorers are looking for experiences they can’t find anywhere else!
For individuals, our permits and insurance require our Adventures to be low-risk, single-day activities. Some of the activities include: Hiking, Biking and Cycling, Flatwater Canoeing & Kayaking, Swimming, Fishing, Boating, Cross-Country Skiing, Snowshoeing, Photography, Wildlife Viewing and Nature Discovery, Educational and Training, and anything in between!
For small businesses, the skies the limit! With your valid certifications and insurance you can post almost anything: Multi-day Backpacking, ATV’ing, Back-country Skiing, Rock Climbing and Mountaineering, and much more!
For individuals using the Yervana permits, we have various permits throughout Alberta and BC. We’re working with Alberta and BC Provincial Parks, Crown land, and Public land holders to expand our available areas. Submit an application with your desired location and we’ll let you know if it’s available. If it’s not, we can start the permitting process.
As a small business you can host Adventures anywhere you have permits!
After you have applied to become a Local, you can create your profile and start building Adventures. Before anything is posted online, your qualifications and Adventures must be reviewed by Yervana.
For local businesses who are ready to go with both insurance and permits. You may be an individual operating as a business or work with a small team. Let us know about your adventure offerings to start listing with Yervana.
