Meet Kyle

Kyle Walker was bitten by a travel bug at the age of 20 when he sold his 1973 Eldorado convertible and bought a round the world plane ticket and a 10 year old Let’s Go Asia book. Upon returning a year later, he knew he had to be in the adventure travel world. With careful consideration of all areas in the west, Arizona and Utah won out for their sheer beauty and limitless options. This area is one of America’s last true wilderness and Kyle spend hundreds of days camping out on the sand and under the stars. Solving the logistics of accessibility to these areas, he set out to share what he learned by designing small, intimate groups that shared his love of all things desert. 30 years after the round the world trip, Kyle has teamed up with Jeff to share these amazing destinations with you.
