About Us

Our Story

I founded “i-Dā” Adventures with a vision of new revolutionary type of travel company. “i-Dā” comes from Latvian “aidā”. It means enthusiastic “let’s go”. English “i” emphasizes individual approach. At the same time it refers to far reaching global goals of the company by using the benefits of the modern digital technologies.

I am travel enthusiast, adventurer, nature conservation professional and passionate theater actor. Hence I have decided to combine all these seemingly different elements into one well functioning and amazing mechanism.

I have had many off-the-beaten and also beaten path trips. Thus I have come to a personal realization that nowadays people are more and more often looking for original and most importantly authentic experiences. I am convinced that this closely relates to the overall evolution of humanity. We are in continuous search for our individuality and authenticity in everything around us and in everything we do.

People not only want to “go places, do things and meet people”. In our globalized world people want to go to authentic places, do eye opening things and meet like-minded people.

I deeply believe that all kinds of travel must contribute to our natural temptation for freedom. And by freedom I mean both: freedom on personal and also on a wider society level.

As a biologist and convinced conservationist I strongly share the vision of sustainable tourism. I see responsible and nature friendly travel being the most convincing tools in raising public awareness about nature conservation and environmental issues on local, regional and global level. These are the principles that we also follow in all our services.

To support these ideas I also run a blog site ESCAPERIES, where I share authentic escape travel stories. They are meant to inspire you, to help you to discover new special and authentic places, see eye opening things and meet like-minded people. Visit this site at www.escaperies.com!”
