The Story of Headwater Adventures

Given a choice in life, which would you prefer—to surround yourself with happy people enjoying an outdoor activity and looking forward to the opportunities presented? Or to sit behind a desk and fend off the negative energy of the unhappy people you encounter? This was a question we recognized while traveling through Denali National Park in Alaska. Everyone on the excursion was excited at every turn with every new adventure—even in the face of danger and the unknown of the Alaskan Wilderness. It was then we knew we wanted to host outdoor adventures as a business. It just took a few years to find the right opportunity.
