The Yonder Platform

Yonder is a newly launched platform for nature tourism. Based in Montana, Yonder was founded by a permaculture farmer and farm stay owner who was frustrated with mainstream booking sites and their lack of resources for the farm stay community.


Yonder offers both a website and an app, all dedicated to helping travelers discover a variety of stay options and activities that can be booked at not only farms, but also ranches, vineyards and other nature-based locations.


The Yonder experience begins with a simple search that asks you to choose your preferred natural experience — farm, vineyard, mountain, forest, ranch, escape, waterfront or open sky. While the farm and vineyard preference is pretty self-explanatory, the open sky preference, for example, will take you to activity and accommodations options known for sweeping vistas and excellent stargazing, while the escape preference shows you activity and accommodations options that are nature-heavy and remote.


After picking your preference, you’ll be shown a listing of accommodations and activities available in a format much like what you see on similar sites, such as Airbnb and Vrbo. You can narrow down the search results by both location and dates desired. You can also view only stays or only activities, and further refine your search by indicating the number of travelers, your budget, sustainability preferences, accessibility needs and more.


Will Yonder be the new Airbnb option for those seeking more natural and eco-friendly accommodations and activities? With beautiful rentals from river houses to garden cottages and activities such as reindeer walks and BYOH (bring your own horse) rides, that could well be the case.
