About Us
Friendly Adventures was started by three regular guys who enjoys organizing extraordinary trips. We have extensively explored our home state of California, ventured into its neighboring states and traveled to many acclaimed tourist spots in North America, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. With over 40 years of combined experience, we have been organizing tours both as Sierra Club leaders and privately for our family and friends. Our luxury camping trips are truly amazing deal. They are well-organized, packed with great hikes and fun activities, and best of all - you'll be eating home-cooked meals nearly every day. Join us on one of our next adventures and you'll fall in love with traveling with us.
John Corcoran
I grew up in Venice, California and was introduced to the outdoors and camping from a very young age. I enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, backpacking and just getting into the wilderness. My passion for history and culture are fused with my love for world travel. I have traveled extensively through-out Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, Canada and the United States. In addition to my personal trips, I have led group outings for more than 20 years to destinations like Sequoia, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Bryce and Zion. I have also led multiple international trips to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Peru and Bolivia. I'm a true vagabond, traveler, adventurer and outdoorsman.
Ron Domash
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and was introduced to the outdoors at a young age through the Boy Scouts. I also helped out with my parents' travel company, which brought large groups to Mexico and Central America. I began coordinating activities and leading trips for the Sierra Club in 1997. These would include luxury camping trips, river rafting tours, and international adventures. I have been to Yosemite, Bryce, Havasupai Falls, Black Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone, Alaska, and Big Sur. My international travel has taken me to Peru, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. I continue to share my passion for the outdoors, fun, adventure and travel by organizing group adventures.
Trent Nguyen
I was raised in San Diego, CA and now reside in Napa, CA. After completing my Bachelor of Science in Economics at the University of California, San Dego, I discovered my love and passion of the outdoors. I joined the Sierra Club in 2002 and was certified as an outings leader in 2006. I began organizing social activities and quickly developed the appetite for coordinating elaborate camping trips. Usually, I would take about 50 people to popular destinations, such as Yosemite, Bryce, Zion and Yellowstone National Parks. I enjoy seeing people from different culture and walk of life come together and share in the same love for nature.
