Incredible Adventures

Incredible Adventures is an eco-friendly outdoor travel company that specializes in small group biodiesel tours from San Francisco to Yosemite National Park, Muir Woods, and the Wine Country, as well as sightseeing and adventure tours from Las Vegas. They offer travelers a safe and reliable way to connect with nature! Since 2002, their passenger mini-coaches have run solely on biodiesel, a cleaner-burning and locally produced fuel made from recycled cooking oil. The company moved to a new office in 2014 and took actions through 2015 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their operations. They replaced the outdated T12 lights with T8s, installed low-flow plumbing fixtures in their restrooms, installed shutdown settings on their computers and heating/cooling systems, and adopted a Green Purchasing Policy. In their office, they use ENERGY STAR laptops and monitors, print brochures and business cards on recycled paper with soy ink, and refill printer cartridges to reduce waste. To reduce the need for plastic water bottles, Incredible Adventures provides drinks at rest stops and encourages guests to bring reusable water bottles to stay hydrated. The office also provides commuter benefits for those who bike to work and use alternative transportation. Incredible Adventures is a part of and works with several environmental groups including the San Francisco Green Business Program, Reverb, California Biodiesel Association, Planeterra Foundation, and Adventure Travel Trade Association. The company attracts about 364 visitors each week from all over the world, making their influence and impact global.
