What are Adventures on Yervana?

Adventures are outdoor activities or trips curated and led by Locals (hosts).

How can I book an Adventure?

Adventures can be booked online at or via our iOS app. To use the Yervana iOS app to book an Adventure,  open the app, create a profile, and browse Adventures. Filter your results by city, date, activity, or price. Select an Adventure and continue through to select the date and book. You’ll be able to sign your waiver and pay securely in the app.

What’s included in an Adventure?

All the details about what’s included in an Adventure should be provided within the description on the listing page created by the Local. Inclusions will vary between Adventures, some may include light snacks or the relevant equipment. If additional equipment is required or is available to rent, this should be listed within the Adventure details as well. 

What requirements do I need to have before booking an Adventure?

You must comply with local laws and regulations in participating in an Adventure, and each Explorer must sign a release and waiver of liability form. Additional requirements, such as fitness level and supplies, will be outlined by the Local on the Adventure page.

How do I pay for my Adventure?

Payment will be processed securely when you book your adventure online or via the app. We use STRIPE to process all our payments. You may use any major credit card.

Can I contact the Local I have booked with directly?

Using the app or website, you can message your Local directly via their profile or through your upcoming Adventures page.

How do I know my Adventure was booked successfully?

You will receive a notification confirming your booking as well as a confirmation email outlining the Adventure details and your payment receipt.

How old do I need to be to book an Adventure?

At this time you must be 18 years of age to create an Explorer profile and book an Adventure. Some Adventures do allow children when accompanied by an adult.

Can I book an Adventure for multiple people at a time?

Yes, you can book an Adventure for multiple people. Use the ‘Add Explorers’ section during the booking process to include the rest of your party on your booking. Each person must sign a release and waiver of liability form, which we will email to them using the email addresses you provide. 

Can I book an Adventure on behalf of someone else?

Yes, you may book an Adventure for someone else as long as you are participating in this Adventure as well. Each Explorer must sign a release and waiver of liability form. If you’re interested in gifting someone an Adventure, check out our gift certificates. 

Can I review the Adventure afterwards?

Yes! Yervana relies on reviews from the community. Once you complete your Adventure you will be prompted to review your experience and rate your Local.

Should I tip my Local?

Tipping is at your own discretion, the price of the Adventure is designed to encompass the entirety of the experience.

Can someone under the age of 18 attend an Adventure?

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and will not be able to book an Adventure.

What happens if I need to cancel my Adventure?

Please refer to our cancellation policy.

What happens if the Local I booked with cancels the Adventure?

We will try to find you a replacement Adventure, and your costs will be refunded in full.

If I was unsatisfied with my Adventure experience, what can I do?

If you’re unsatisfied with your experience, you can contact us directly at Yervana by sending us an email at  detailing your experience and we will help remedy the situation. Take a look at our Adventure Guarantee policy for more information.

What happens if the weather is bad on the day of my booked Adventure?

Yervana Locals make every effort to continue, as scheduled, with Adventures. If weather creates an unsafe or uncomfortable scenario for Explorers, this may result in a change or cancellation of your Adventure. If an individual Adventure is cancelled, we will contact your Local to process a refund.

What if I get injured during the Adventure?

Safety is our top priority. If someone is injured or requires medical attention during an Adventure, take your group to a safe place, contact local emergency services immediately, and report the incident to us once safety concerns are addressed.


How do I create an account?

Why do I need to include a photo of myself?

How do I reset my password?

If you have forgotten your password, you can request a reset when trying to login. Select the option ‘Forgot your password?’ to get a reset link. If you’re already logged in to your account, visit the ‘change password’ page. 

Can I delete my Yervana account?

You can deactivate your Yervana account at any time, as long as you do not have any activities booked as a Local or as an Explorer. Please email to request that your account be deleted. 

Can I refer Yervana to a friend?
