Our mission

57hours is a platform where you can find and book the best guided outdoor adventures.

Find awesome outdoor adventures

Have you ever tried to find an outdoor package or book a guide for an upcoming ski or rock climbing trip? Have you? The process can take hours, even days! There’re so many options for so many locations, not to mention how daunting it can be to sort through your Google search results looking for that diamond in the rough of an adventure. 57hours is the platform where you and other outdoor lovers can find the best guided adventures. We know every guide we recommend. Truly. We can guarantee that each guide is passionate about his or her clients’ needs and education.

Learn from the best

Making the progression from climbing a 5.9 to a 5.11 in trad style took some of us fifteen years. Yup. And some of us got there in only a year or two. That gap in the learning curve speaks to the tremendous difference a skilled and caring guide, educator or coach can make in your personal development – lots of people have even found solo weekend-climbing camps beyond beneficial for their skill development. We know that you can, too, make giant leaps in attaining your personal goals and pushing your outdoor limits. Whether your passion is backcountry skiing, rock climbing, alpinism or any other outdoor pursuit, try your next adventure with a guide and get a jump on that learning curve!

Help guides and instructors build sustainable careers

Did you know that most guides struggle to make a living during the first 10-15 years of their careers? That’s how long it can take for new guides to build a significant client base! Many aspiring guides struggle to keep up with expenses as their income often doesn’t meet their basic needs or educational investments. Oftentimes travel agencies selling your adventure package receive a much bigger cut than the guide. Our platform connects you directly with the guides and their wonderful programs and adventures, enabling a better experience for everyone involved.
