Chamber welcomes new business, DIRO Outdoors

The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce welcomed new business DIRO Outdoors Adventure Company to the chamber and the St. Croix Valley business community earlier this month.

Established in late 2016, DIRO Outdoors Adventure Company hosts local outdoor activities, tours, parties and group events within the Twin Cities and St. Croix River Valley. It also offers gear rentals, outdoor education and environmental stewardship opportunities. Its primary activities center around kayaking, paddle boarding, fat biking, snowshoeing, hiking, tree tents and camping.

As a 100 percent mobile adventure business, DIRO brings gear to their clients at various activity locations to make the process of getting outside as easy as possible. Customers select an activity, a location, a specific time and their desired gear online. On the day of the activity, customers show up at the location during their scheduled time, use the provided gear, and return it to DIRO at the same location.

“We are very excited to have launched our business here in the beautiful St. Croix Valley,” said Darren Dobier, who owns the business with Oie Dobier. “We want to encourage people to try a wide variety of activities in hopes that they will ‘find their outer space.’”
