What is a Cairn Guide?

Cairn Guides are local outdoor experts that optimize the benefits of getting outdoors with the hopes of getting you hooked on the outdoors. This could include hiking, trail running, outdoor yoga, rock climbing, SUP, nature photography, or some other outdoor activity.


We expect guides to give a personalized touch to every adventure by crafting adventures for the client, like individualized treatment in healthcare. Additionally, by exploring with a local you get to explore "hidden gems" you might otherwise not know about and can get tips on other local attractions along the way.

We want people that adventure with a Cairn guide to leave with more knowledge, confidence, and understanding around the outdoors. The ultimate goal is to get more people outside to live a healthier life and develop a stronger connection to nature because people that are connected to their environment are more likely to want to take care of it. So if you want to help create a healthier world, fight the climate crisis, or both, don't hesitate to contact us if you're considering becoming a Cairn Guide!
