What is UWild Adventures?

Live curiously. Experience nature. Be wild.

There is no setting like the wilderness to inspire the wild in all of us. To be wild is to experience life outside of the comfort zone. To push, believe, and accomplish something previously thought impossible, or never thought of at all. Engaging in adventure enriches the human experience. The raw, natural landscape drives curiosity to understand the unknown, develops the willpower to take one step further, and inspires thought of travel, place and purpose.

There are many paths you’ll take in life, we will make sure a few of them are made of dirt.
