Why the Golden Circle?

Gold is a symbol of purity, honesty, and strength.
A Circle is a symbol of unity, harmony, and infinity.

Our core values are:

  • A respect and understanding of Nature
  • Education in wilderness activities and photography
  • Conservation of America’s wildlands
  • Safety for ourselves and our clients
  • Living a healthy lifestyle
  • Respect for all
  • and of course, Fun and fulfillment!

Education is of high value for both the guides and our clients.  We are not only guides; we are educators.  Our approach to teaching is fun and relaxed while at the same time being engaging as well as challenging.  With this in mind, we wish to guide people while allowing them to develop the skills they need to live, learn, and play safely in the wild. We are committed to inspiring our clients to have an new or heightened appreciation for nature.

Experiencing the outdoors, away from the distractions of modern civilization, is a fulfilling  part of life that teaches self-reliance, respect, and a sense of responsibility.  We hope to inspire a respect and commitment to the wild.  Our trips offer a moving experience that leads to inspiration, joy and a better understanding of ourselves. Golden Circle Guides is not only our business, it is our way of life.  Having the opportunity to share what we love with you and others is a great honor and we are truly grateful.
