This New App Connects You To Local Experts In The US To Take You Surfing, Hiking And More

When it comes to travelling abroad, everyone knows that locals know best. But what if there was a suer easy way of getting connected to in-the-know locals who can hook you up with the best outdoor activities?

Introducing Lyfx: the Uber of adventurous experiences.

The app launched in July this year with the mission of connecting travellers in the US with local experts in a variety of outdoor activities, like camping, hiking, photography, cycling, surfing and skiing.

Right now, Lyfx has more than 150 available adventures for you to have a crack at in Colorado and Utah, with plans to offer at least another 50 activities in California by the end of this month, and expand to states like Maine, Georgia and New York in the near future.

How it works is once you’ve downloaded the app, you let it know what kind of outdoor activities you’re into. Then, it will give you a bunch of different ways to search for a qualified guide. Each activity also comes with a packing list, a full itinerary, its difficulty level and how long you can expect to spend in the great outdoors.
