We try to make it easy for you to get out there and start hosting Adventures, so we’ve cut through some of the red tape involved with getting insured.
- Our insurance provider can insure for “low-risk” activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, flat water canoeing & kayaking, and other similar activities. Let us know what you’re thinking and we’ll see what we can do insurance-wise.
- Yervana works closely with Alberta Parks, BC Parks, and Private & Public land holders to acquire permits throughout the Provinces. We have multiple permits and are always working with local regulators and communities to obtain additional permits requested by out Locals.
- Yervana does not have permits for any National parks and won’t be able to get these in the near future. If you’re looking to operate in these areas, you’ll need to acquire your own.
- If you can provide the areas and activities you would like to lead Adventures, we can investigate the permit situation.
We want to make sure no question goes unanswered, which is why we’ve put together this very resource centre with guidelines for how to create compelling Adventures, write a captivating profile, select photos and much, much more. If you have an idea for topics to add let us know! We’ll add it to the list.
Most importantly, at Yervana we want to provide you with a booking platform that shares your values and focuses on ethical tourism, sustainability, and education, so you can pursue your career in the great outdoors with peace of mind.
