conservation and wildlife
travel experiences.

We started Reefs to Rockies in 2006 with a vision to create travel experiences based on conservation and wildlife. The inspiration behind Reefs to Rockies started with a study-abroad program in Costa Rica, leading to an interest in the interaction between tourism and conservation. Our experience as wildlife biologists in the field, science teachers, and travelers has brought us to our passion and mission at Reefs to Rockies.

Since our start, we have become an industry leader in curating custom trips. In contrast to other travel companies, we take the time to truly develop custom trips for our clients. When someone comes to us with an idea for a destination they want to visit, we formulate a custom itinerary to meet all of their travel dreams. In our initial conversations with our clients, we find out their travel goals and inspiration for the trip and break down their previous travel experiences. Then, while planning your trip, we consider what you like and dislike about travel, the activities you want to do, and the specific wildlife you want to see.

Our experiences are completely customizable, which sets us apart from our competition. We are not locked into luxury or budget trips, allowing us to fit your travel goals within your budget. We want to know the details of who is traveling so we can develop an itinerary that matches everyone’s trip wants and needs. We plan trips for solo travelers, couples, friends, families, and multigenerational families with travelers of all ages.

No matter what kind of traveler you are, Reefs to Rockies can create custom travel experiences that meet your wildest dreams and expectations. Have you dreamt of seeing a sloth in the wild? Would you love to go on a safari? Do you consider yourself a nature nerd like us? Let us know! We will work with you to build the perfect trip.
