A Bit About Eric

Eric Bergdoll is a professional rope-based adventure guide and tour designer currently based in Hilo, Hawaii. While most outdoor professionals focus on one discipline in the space, Eric’s projects transcend the boundaries of any established sport or terrain. These tours combine Climbing, Canyoneering, and Whitewater Paddling at a high level, using technical rope systems to lower the required skillset, making things accessible to first-timers. Eric has used his reputation in the adventure sports community to become an outspoken supporter of respectful and responsible adventure sports access in Hawaii and around the world.

In addition to his outdoor adventures, Eric has also worked with numerous brands as a brand ambassador, content writer, and product photographer. Brands include Kokopelli Packrafts, Forbes Vetted, L.L.Bean, Stio, Sterling Ropes, Pyranha Kayaks, NOLS, Adventure Ready Brands, Amphipack,, Liquid Hawaii Charters, and many others.
