Lyfx is a digital platform created by adventurers to help facilitate more adventure.Travellers can connect with local experts across the US to plan bespoke trips. Tough or chill. For hours or days. Every human connection is built around an outdoor experience. Finding a ride to dinner is a breeze, ever since ride-share services like Uber and Lyft pulled up to the curb. But finding a trained expert to take you on a backpacking tour through the mountains? Not so easy. Enter Lyfx (pronounced life-x), an app that launched this summer with the promise of getting you off the grid safely, with the help of a registered expert. Based in Santa Monica, the app’s network of activities currently extends through Utah and Colorado (and in the coming weeks, California). Simply choose your adventure and let Lyfx go to work. Whether hiking, camping, cycling, surfing, photography, or acro-yoga is your jam, there’s a guide and an excursion for you. Finding an adventure on the app is easy. You can search either by region (or state) or by your favorite activities to find the expert, the adventure, and the itinerary right for you. They’ll even let you know up front what kind of gear you need, so you won’t find yourself in the snow without your long johns. On the flip side, the app is also a way for outdoor enthusiasts to build handcrafted itineraries of their favorite destinations to share with curious travelers. Simply apply through the app, and once approved as a “local expert,” you’ll have the chance to create your own excursions and set your own price and schedule.
