Regina Hess

Professional Guide / Instructor




Favorite Trip:

The Pacific Crest trail is my favorite place to backpack for weeks on end.

Our own little spice girl, Regina is full of energy and has become a jane-of-all-trades here at Desert Adventures. She is one of our veteran guides (kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and biking) and also spends time with our guests on the phone, making sure we match them with a vacation that will suit their needs.

Regina is from a little bit of everywhere, living in places like Hawaii, San Diego, Southern Utah, North Dakota, and now Las Vegas. Her smile and laughter are contagious and also make her a guest favorite. She is a hippie at heart, riding her bike everywhere to reduce her carbon footprint and also be healthy.

An ACA level II canoe and kayak instructor, Regina loves to teach paddling skills to adults and children alike. She is also a certified Leave No Trace instructor, and is a Wilderness First Aid provider. She loves learning and is always pushing herself to acquire new skills and knowledge to help provide a great experience to her guests.
