Outdoor Dating Experiences in the Wild 
-Singles Seeking Real Connections-

When asked for his suggestion for a dating app, New York Times editor and Modern Love curator, Daniel Jones, countered: 

         "Go on a trip abroad, or on a backcountry excursion, with 10 people you don't know. I bet you'll fall in love with one of them."

We create outdoor experiences specifically designed to facilitate deep human connections, no matter your age. We've done the online dating thing. We've spent too much money on coffee dates that lead to only surface level connections. Our outdoor dating experiences are designed to connect you with like-minded humans in a safe fun environment that encourages a deeper connection. Our goal is getting humans together doing human things. And heck, maybe you'll fall in love.

Connect with like-minded singles

on rad outdoor adventures

How it works

Find an adventure that works for you

Browse our experience below. They're organized by age range, departure date, and departure location around the NW. Most experiences take place in the mountains of Eastern Oregon. Average group size is 8-10 as research has shown 8 is the perfect number for small group connections. If you have questions about an adventure, ask us! 

Secure your spot
(and try not to fall in love)

Contact our team by phone or email to join a trip. We require a deposit of 50% trip cost to save your spot. Fall in love before your trip? We get that that happens. Don't worry, we'll refund all your deposit minus $100. A small price to pay for love, right?! You can always transfer your trip to a friend at no fee.  

Embark on the adventure of a lifetime

Every experience begins with a micro-adventure in your departure city that creatively introduces you to the group. We don't overload our trips with hokey ice-breakers. Expect an experience that facilitates human connection both through its very nature and because we've worked hard (and consulted professionals) to craft something that is designed to bring people together.

Sunday

Right when you'd thought you'd seen it all~ The hike out to Anthony Lakes only gets more stunning with each step. A cold beer (or beverage of your choice) awaits you at the lodge before the ride into Baker City for a relaxing evening of assorted special activities and a night in Eastern's Oregon's most historic hotel. 

Monday

Enjoy breakfast at Baker's best kept secret and a casual start to the drive back to Boise. The end of the trip is so often the beginning of a new adventure for our guests.
