Guiding is
our Passion

We Love To Explore And Share all that New England has to offer

Ridgeback Guide Service was started in 2017 by Ron Harrington II in order to guide people on Overland adventures in the Northeast and demonstrate the recreational, historic and local-vore opportunities in New England. Our Mission is to provide our clients with a professional, safe, confidence building experience while showcasing the beauty and rustic charm that New England has to offer. We guide all around the Northeast, primarily in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts.
