A Mercedes-Benz Sprinter comes to a stop in a clearing in the middle of a forest. The sliding door opens and five people get out. Now they continue on foot. The morning air is cold and clear. It is quiet but time is short. They quickly put on their backpacks, set out and disappear into the vast expanses of the American forest. The escape is a success – Naturally not from a prison but rather from the stress of day-to-day life. Their accomplice during this getaway: EverGreen Escapes. Since 2006 the company has helped busy city inhabitants to rediscover the incredible outdoors of the north-western USA. A place they have only ever seen on television.
Whether a private tour or a team-building event for companies: it is important to fulfill the customers’ unique expectations. As always, the first impression counts. “When we drive up to our base camp in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to collect the escapists – that is what we call our clients – and take them on an adventure then they immediately know that they are in good hands and that their escape will be unique”, explains, Jake Haupert, founder and Managing Director of EverGreen Escapes. The large panorama windows enable the escapists to admire the natural scenery of the Pacific Northwest during the journey.
But that is just the beginning. Impressive waterfalls, breath-taking sunrises and sunsets, virgin nature: The day trips or multi-day trips are never boring. The tour guides or “escape artists”, as they call themselves, are all passionate adventurers with years of experience and never neglect the local cuisine and brewing arts.
The aim is to make the escapists aware of their environment and the value of nature on every tour. EverGreen Escapes serves as a good role model, focusing completely on sustainable tourism. The most efficient van in its class, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, also reflects this philosophy. One that will allow the coming generations to escape from their everyday lives and get back to nature with EverGreen Escapes. „When we roll up to whisk our guests away on their adventure in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, it sets the tone and our escapists immediately know they are in a good hands and in for an amazing and comfortable escape.“
