    Regenerative Travel is an innovative approach to tourism that focuses on making a positive impact on the environment, economy, and communities of the destinations we visit. At First Nature Tours, we believe in the power of travel to create meaningful and transformative experiences that not only benefit the traveler but also contribute to the well-being of the places we visit.

    Past Tours

    Our past Regenerative Tours have been hugely successful and impactful, below are a few highlights:

    McKenzie River Regenerative Trip: The communities surrounding the Mckenzie River depend on quality recreation sites that were in desperate need of repair and revitalization. During this trip, participants learned about wildlife recovery and wildfire prevention through adventure and service. 


    Olympic National Forest and Culture Trip: Participants experienced the magic of the Olympic National Forest, the only rainforest in North America, with the long-standing communities of the region. Our hosts, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, were the focal point of this tour. The guests were immersed in the culture, actively participating in culinary, communal, and cultural activities spanning the three-day visit.


    Willamette River- Wine and Regeneration Trip: This tour participated in a stewardship project with a local non-profit to provide guests with a rich historical understanding of the region and the significance of the Willamette river to local communities. The immersive educational experience included a guided kayak tour near the historic town of Independence, the point of inspiration for this tour. Guests enjoyed tastings at a local sustainable winery and a farm-to-table meal.

Our founder, Kieron, is passionate about creating a safe and welcoming space for all travelers, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

    The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a progressive and accepting region, with cities like Portland and Seattle ranking among the top U.S. cities for LGBTQ+ residents. These cities are known for their celebration of individuality and self-expression, making them major hubs for queer life on the West Coast. But the LGBTQ+ community extends far beyond the urban centers, with opportunities for outdoor adventure, culinary exploration, and cultural experiences throughout the region.

    At First Nature Tours, we are committed to creating customized tours to vetted destinations and activity partners, ensuring that our LGBTQ+ clients can fully experience the healing power of nature without fear of discrimination or intolerance.

    First Nature Tour Team Building | Where Work Meets Play

    At First Nature, we believe that team building events should be more than just a way to bond with your colleagues. When you choose to take your team outside and connect with the natural world, you’re also connecting with your community and the environment in which you live and work.

    We are passionate about the Pacific Northwest and strive to help our guests build lasting bonds with the inspiring natural surroundings. Our team building activities and events are specifically designed to increase motivation, promote cooperation, and enhance workplace morale. By working together to solve problems, coworkers can improve their ability to think rationally and strategically. And sometimes, it’s just as important to blow off some steam and enjoy a fun activity like whitewater rafting or mountain climbing.

    If you’re planning an offsite meeting and looking to incorporate some excitement and professional facilitation, we’ve got you covered. Let us know your objectives and we’ll work with you to create a customized plan that meets the needs of your team and your customers. With our help, you can accomplish your goals and create a stronger, more effective team.

Through a range of tailored exercises, we help reframe success as a group outcome, encouraging individuals to embrace a team mindset even beyond the completion of the activities. Whether you’re organizing a team retreat or undertaking a company-wide restructuring, our experienced curators will collaborate with you to understand the underlying goals of the initiative and work towards achieving them.

    Outdoor Team Building:

    First Nature Tours offers an educational-focused tour package that is tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of school groups traveling to the Pacific Northwest. With a successful track record of leading educational tours, our team of expert tour guides is dedicated to refining the way we teach and engage with students.

    Our team of tour guides is composed of specialists in natural history, sustainability, and climate science, who believe that we can do more for our guests and destinations through education and a focus on regenerative tourism. We bring more than just an adventure, we bring an immersive, educational experience from unforgettable destinations.

    One of the focal points of our tour is PNW history. The Pacific Northwest has a rich history, from the indigenous groups that have been here for thousands of years to the first Europeans to make their way to the Pacific Ocean for trade and settlements. We connect nature to history for our students, while on a whitewater rafting adventure, we connect with the North American trade routes. Eating locally in Central Oregon can be connected to the impact of local agriculture and we’ll stop in historic towns along the way. We will provide cultural or historical information to enhance the experience.

    Another important aspect of our tour is natural history. The Pacific Northwest is home to diverse wildlife and ecosystems that provide unique learning opportunities for students. Our team of naturalists will guide students through an immersive experience, exploring the flora and fauna of the region and understanding the natural history of the area.

    We also provide students with the opportunity to learn about climate change and its impact on the region. The PNW is a poignant stage to discuss the local impacts of climate change. Through direct experience and educational immersion in areas that are being affected by human-caused climate change, students will witness the impacts first-hand and understand the finer details of the processes of how these effects came to be and what we can do to be part of the solution.

    Finally, our tour is grounded in regenerative travel. We partner with local landowners and non-profit organizations to do on-the-ground sustainability work, providing students with the opportunity to engage in direct sustainability action. Through these teachable moments, we believe that education on these impacts is paramount to embody the role of stewardship through sustainability while visiting unforgettable destinations. We invite you to join us on an unforgettable journey of discovery and learning in the Pacific Northwest.
