In 1989, we crossed paths in Cabo San Lucas. Now, 33 years later, we are blessed with two amazing teenagers and two beloved German Shepherds. Our adventure continues to grow every day as we explore activities like yoga, surfing, kiting, mountain biking, and travel. We want you to be a part of our journey.

In 2006, we fulfilled our dream by building and opening Samana Chakra Boutique Retreat in Peru. It was there that we met incredible guests who became lifelong friends. We shared life-changing moments, joy, and adventure that inspired us.

Driven by our love for travel, hospitality, and the desire to give back, we founded Samana Legacy Adventures. The journey began in Hood River in 2017, and thanks to all of you, it has been a sublime success.

Throughout the challenges of the pandemic and to this day, our passion for adventure remains unyielding. If anything, it has ignited a deeper longing to offer an extraordinary experience.


The time has come to turn that vision into reality.

To our dear friends and future friends, we invite you to join us on another unforgettable journey. Let us take you on the adventure of a lifetime, where happiness belongs to you.

With warm regards,

Johanna & Gary


With every adventure, we aim to make a positive difference wherever we go. As global travelers when we visit amazing places 

we like to dive deep into the local community, getting to know our hosts learning their culture and connecting.


Our goal is to go one step further, thanks to all who travel on our retreats, we are able to give 5% of profits to charity, to promote awareness and the preservation of natural lands.

Like you, we wish to protect what 'we've come to enjoy.
