Women Backpacking | Wilderness Backpacking Trips

Wilderness backpacking trips are the best way to explore remote areas, to learn just how little you really need, and to let your rhythms attune to the natural world. On backpacking trips the pressures of every day life recede, simplicity replaces busyness, and (re)gaining perspective on what is truly important in life slowly occurs. Backpacking can be a lifelong sport that, after an initial investment in clothing and equipment, is inexpensive. On our backpacking trips you learn what you need to have a safe and fun trip. And while we will always welcome your return, we want you to become as self-sufficient as you are interested in being.
Intro to Lightweight Backpacking on the AT - FULL
June 11, 2017 – June 18, 2017

On this wilderness backpacking trip we travel along one of the Appalachian Trail's most interesting sections, from Dicky Gap to Elk Garden, at the height of the rhododendron and azaleas in bloom. This is an ideal backpacking trip for novices: our moderate mileage leaves time for you to learn everything you need to know to pursue backpacking on your own. Or if you haven't been backpacking for awhile, join us to learn about the lightweight revolution. Our lightweight approach should keep your pack under 30 pounds.  $1395  Rating: 1  2  [3]  4  5 

Backpacking The Grand Canyon
October 8, 2017 – October 15, 2017

The Grand Canyon is truly one of the wonders of the world, and its exploration is not to be taken lightly. Once away from the crowded rim, we travel primitive paths, gather water from springs, marvel at the power of the Colorado River, sleep under the stars, and experience the beauty of the Canyon and our own insignificance. Backpacking experience required. $1595 Rating: 1  2  3  4  [5]
