Become A Hiking Group Host

Let's face it. Unless you grew up in it, it's challenging to find a good job in the outdoor industry.

It's challenging to handle the administrative and logistics necessary to deliver the experiences you want for your community.

Well, it was until now.

If you've ever found yourself hating the job search process, dissatisfied with working a desk job or thinking that you could make money from the trips you're already planning or thinking about, you're at the right place.

It's easier than ever to host your hiking community in outdoor spaces and earning money when you list your hike on Outerthere.

You'll have access to resources you'll need, from transportation rentals, reservation management (including cancelations) and all the free training, data and support.

Let us focus on the things you'd rather not do so you can focus on the fun parts you love: more hikes, your growing community and a 4-to-5-figure revenue outdoor business.
