Founders Gabe Aufderheide and Trevor James have over fifteen years combined experience designing and coordinating high-end active vacations.
“Our goal is to create unique and dynamic adventures for our guests. We invite you to get in touch so we can help you get beyond the standard tourist loops and to truly immerse yourself in the beauty, history, wildlife, geology and pristine open spaces of the western United States – in particular, our spectacular National Parks and public lands, to which we owe our inspiration. They are at the very foundation of our business.”
From California to Vietnam, Trevor has spent the past decade criss-crossing the globe developing and guiding custom vacations for discerning clients. Through his work with one of the world’s top active travel companies, Trevor developed a deep and abiding passion for connecting people with new destinations, cultures and encounters.
When he’s not traveling, Trevor spends time in Jackson, WY, where he met and became fast friends with co-founder Gabe Aufderheide. Moterra was born out of their shared desire to be passionate liaisons between their beautiful home and its visitors through hospitality, knowledge and exceptional vans.
Gabe has over ten years of experience guiding, designing, and customizing specialty travel across the globe. He has biked, hiked, skied, fished, and explored all over our amazing planet but has yet to find a place that offers the sort of pure beauty and access to adventure that Jackson Hole does – which is why, after 7 years and two kids, Gabe and his wife have no plans to leave Jackson any time soon.
Gabe’s passion is helping others experience, explore and enjoy the wonders of their public lands. He believes the best customer service is the kind that allows him to communicate openly and share his deep knowledge of place in order to enhance his guest’s overall experience.
