Adventure Life named one of the Inc. 5000 for 2010

Adventure Life, a Missoula, MT-based adventure travel company that provides small-group tours in Latin America and small-ship cruises throughout the world, has been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing companies in America.  The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2006 through 2009. Qualifying companies must be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent. Adventure Life earned the 4704 position with a 3-year growth of 12% and revenue of $8.2 million in 2009, and is one of only 26 representatives from the travel industry to make the list.

“With nearly 30 million small businesses in the U.S., being ranked in the top 5000 is a pretty amazing accomplishment,” said Brian Morgan, founder and CEO of Adventure Life. “This recognition is great for our hard-working staffers and devoted clientele.”

Added Jane Berenston, Inc. magazine, editor, “For more than 30 years, Inc.’s list has served as evidence of the significant accomplishments of enterprises such as Adventure Life.   And, more than ever, this year’s list is a testament to the creativity, resilience, and tenacity of America’s top entrepreneurs.”

In 2010, Adventure Life was also named as one of Outside magazine’s best places to work in the world, and was awarded both a National Geographic 2010 Tour of a Lifetime and National Geographic Adventure Best New Trips for 2010.
