What is a Local?

A Yervana Local hosts outdoor activities for Yervana Explorers. You will create Adventure listings based on activities you are passionate towards. These listings guide guests to book and explore with you! You’ll be turning outdoor adventures into a way to earn extra cash while introducing like-minded people to unforgettable outdoor experiences. Whether you’re an expert at skiing, hiking, canoeing, climbing, all of the above or otherwise, we’re excited for you to share your passion with our community!

Neat! So, How Do I Become A Local?

To begin the process you must submit an application HERE. This short, five minute questionnaire helps us collect information to get you on board! The more experience and certifications you already have, the faster it will be for you to start listing. Don’t have all your certs? No worries! We can connect you with our partners to make sure you get your Wilderness First Aid and any other activity specific certs!
