R.L.T Adventures strives to create semi-private, intimate, and nature-inspired tours which allow you to reconnect with the environment and yourself in a whole new way. My all-inclusive tours provide all of the equipment, expertise, and even a snack so that all you need to worry about the day of the adventure is showing up. While all levels are welcome to join in the adventures, R.L.T was created with those curious adventurer in mind who have always wanted to try mountain biking, or cave exploring, or kayaking...but felt a bit intimidated or did not know how to go about trying the activity. My guided tours allow you the space to learn something new, share in the glorious nature of Santa Cruz, and perhaps fall in love with a brand new hobby. Mountain biking isn't only about the gnarly trails and high jumps...it is also about taking in the beauty of the redwood forest and seeing just how much freedom you have when you are on a bike. Kayaking also doesn't have to be something you need to learn how to barrel-roll out of to have fun...it is also about coasting beside dolphins and observing sea otters in their nature habitat. Being an outdoor enthusiast is for anyone, at all levels, and R.L.T is here to introduce you to some awe-inspiring local beauty all your new outdoor playground. Not only will our tours of local beauty delight and surprise you, you may find surprise and delight in yourself as you take on this new adventure and come out empowered and inspired!
