Blue Marble Adventure GeoTourism specializes in geology-based outdoor adventures that illuminate the mind, refresh the body, and nourish the soul.  We see the landscapes as few people do, and want to share that fundamental knowledge of our Earth with you.  The Earth is just a box of rocks, and that box is our playground
Our guides are trained geologists, wilderness stewards, and experienced travelers.  We want to share our love of the Earth and all of its mystery and wonder with our guests creating lifetime memories and adventure.  We also are invested in our community, giving 1% of all guided hiking tour proceeds to the National Parks Foundation, which helps to sustain, enlarge, and keep the National Parks, America's Best Idea, beautiful for generations to come.

So much of the true wilderness experience comes from being able to understand and interpret what you are seeing.  Why are those rocks red?  How did this canyon form?  What is that tree?  What cultural signifigance are those petroglyphs?  Oue expert guides will not only keep you safe, relaxed, and intrigued, they will also be able to answer almost any question you have about the landscape you are seeing.

A trained geologist is a person who can interpret millions of years of Earth's history simply by staring at a rock outcrop for a few minutes.  Anyone can read a book about The Grand Canyon, Zion, The Painted Desert, or Death Valley, but seeing it up close and personal is a completely different and extraordinary experience. Our guides will give you knowledge and the intimate experience of truly knowing where you came from.  ​

In addition to our geologic knowledge, our trips also give you the fundamental ability to immerse yourself in the landscape without worrying about food, water, camping arrangements, transportation, driving directions, or any logistical issues that invariably accompany adventure.  Let us handle the details, all you need to do is enjoy the ride.
