Hiking trips are rejuvenating and relaxing. Surrounded by beauty and breathing fresh air, the rhythms of hiking gradually banish the myriad concerns that occupy our everyday life. Anyone of any age can hike and outdoor hiking is a great way to improve your level of physical conditioning. We have two guides on every trip and everyone is encouraged to hike at her own pace; you won't feel pushed to hike faster than you feel comfortable or held back if you enjoy pushing it. And an added bonus? The calories burned hiking make it really hard to gain weight on hiking vacations. We offer hiking trips in the US, including Appalachian Trail hiking and hiking in many of our National Parks, as well as hiking in Europe, Asia, New Zealand, Canada .
