OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Echo Adventure Cooperative is a collective board worker cooperative made up of empowered, encouraged and adventurous men and women throughout the Sierra. Every Echo Adventures employee directly contributes to the decision making of the Corporation through the Employee Advisory Board or the Board of Directors.
In addition to volunteering and donating to conservation organizations and efforts, Echo Adventures members also practice and teach strict Leave No Trace principles, including catch & release fly fishing with barbless hooks. our basecamp uses 100% Solar Choice Power and pre-owned office and computer equipment as well as repurposed furniture and fixtures
Each adventure is carefully crafted with guest safety and satisfaction in mind, and our Adventure Coordinators and Guides will always work to help you make the most of your time in the Sierra. All adventures include equipment, fees, licenses & transportation as well as a diverse menu of locally sourced add-ons so you can customize the perfect day!
We don't just work here, we live here, so Echo Adventure Cooperative works closely with residents, local businesses, and community organizations to help make our community healthier, safer, and more sustainable and inclusive. In 2023, we are donating, volunteering and fundraising to develop and maintain safe and clean local trails.
My mother and I did the Wellness Yoga/Meditation hike to the waterfalls, and it was amazing. We had such a great time. It was the perfect balance of mindfulness, peacefulness, and adventure. Our guide, Catherine, was really great; she lead us through the yoga and meditation, but also gave us space to do our own thing. COVID precautions were taken, and my mom and I felt very safe and secure. She was amazing. I recommend the experience to anyone.

Adventure Loft is amazing. Looks brand new, great use of space. Nice extra touches like light breakfast/food items, full bottles of soaps, shampoo/conditioner, aromatherapy bottles, robes, speaker, Alexa etc. Groveland is so cute, walked to everything. Only 1/2 hour to Yosemite gate. Elisabeth is a great host and very responsive. Can’t wait to stay here again!

I would ABSOLUTELY without hesitation recommend using Echo Adventure Coop!!! Bryant was our guide for our families’ first fly fishing experience and he was the best. We had so much fun and the lunch sandwiches were delicious. Thank you Bryant and Elizabeth for helping us create a family experience we will never forget. Mahalo.
