Our Commitment to Safety
Yervana is committed to growing awareness of safety in the outdoors and encouraging environmentally sustainable travel with our global community of outdoor adventurers.
Safety Requirements for our Locals
Yervana follows a thorough safety screening process for our Locals. Before any Adventures go online, we verify the safety qualifications, insurance, and permits of a Local. We work closely with regulatory and certifying bodies to ensure we have the most recent information.
- Meet (and they often exceed) the safety certification requirements for their activities.
- Have at least $2 million insurance liability coverage.
- Have valid permits for the areas they operate in.
- Complete their Wilderness First Aid Courses

Try an Adventure
Yervana has 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.
