Our Story

Ron Geddert, Owner

Ron Geddert, Founder

I’m Ron Geddert, and I founded this company out of two passions: First, to see the world, something I’ve been driven to do since the age of five. The second was to bring the world, in turn, to see the spectacular beauty of my own home.

Living my first passion has been incredible, but my travels also showed me that the possibilities I imagined were not yet available. Each company I toured with had many strengths, but none delivered everything I needed. When I came home and looked at the different options available to travellers in my own part of the world, I knew their experience could be so much better. I was immediately excited about the huge opportunity to provide exceptional experiences to fellow adventurers, the kind I would want to travel on myself.

I love putting together successful new ventures, and doing so with a commitment to provide the highest quality outcomes. Exceptional service has always been a core value for me, and so it is with West Adventures as well. Our commitment is to provide you with “the experience of a lifetime”—and I have made sure to put together a team who are as steeped in this value as I am.
