David DiCerbo

Founder of Destination Backcountry Adventures

Dave Di Cerbo Headshot Bw

David DiCerbo left a successful but unfulfilling corporate career in publishing to pursue his passion for connecting others with the outdoors. In 2011, he founded Destination Backcountry, a backpacking and hiking guiding company based in Brooklyn, to share the restorative power of the wilderness with his fellow nature-deprived New Yorkers. He and his team of guides have dedicated their lives to sharing their favorite forests with others while helping people form a closer relationship with nature. Dave has been featured in full length pieces on the Today’s Show and in the Wall Street Journal. He has contributed to articles in Backpacker Magazine, Men's Health, and many local NYC publications. He has taught his signature ADAPT approach to survival in front of wide-ranging audiences.
