About Us

Explore Adventure Sports was started in 1998 by John Oliva. Our company was created to share our adventures with you, whether you want to trek in Nepal, bike in Scandinavia, or participate in one of our events. Meeting new people and exploring new cultures is what we are all about. These are the things we enjoy in life. Come explore with us!

John grew up in Colorado and started to hike and bike at high altitudes at a very early age. He climbed his first 13,000 foot mountain at the age of 8, which is also when he started to get involved with bike tours lead by his father. John has traveled extensively throughout the world and strives to learn about and interact with foreign cultures. He has been leading treks in Nepal and Scandinavia for many years. During these years he has learned Nepali and Swedish, which helps to bridge the gap between the westerners traveling with us and the locals. John is an active athlete who has competed in several sports such as speed in-line skating, speed skiing, cycling races, and running races. John also leads bike tours through the Wine Country of Northern California annually.
