Death Valley Delights

Adventures in Good Company

A Death Valley hiking tour is the perfect antidote to the winter blahs and one of the best warm winter vacations in the United States! In February the skies are clear and sunny (but not too hot!) and the hiking is excellent. In addition to unique ecology and engaging human history, there is fascinating geology that our guides will help us understand.
Adventures in Good Company Appalacian Trail

Hiking Lodge to Lodge on the Appalachian Trail

Adventures in Good Company

There are many ways to hike the Appalachian Trail: day hikes, slackpacking, backpacking, and hut to hut. On this trip, however, Adventures in Good Company do it in style! We'll go lodge to lodge, staying in the lovely and very different lodges that are conveniently spaced along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, while our luggage is transported by van. This part of the AT is well-graded and well-maintained, with climbs rarely exceeding 500 or 1,000 feet, so it is excellent for novice hikers and anyone who enjoys vistas and abundant wildlife.

Big Bend Exploring and Hiking

Adventures in Good Company

The Big Bend region of Texas is untouched, under-touristed, and just a little bit funky. This trip brings you into the heart of the region with hiking in Big Bend State Park and Big Bend National Park, paddling the Rio Grande and a trek up into the Chisos Mountains- a trail that Backpacker Magazines includes in their ‘100 Best Miles of Hiking in the US’. You will experience the eclectic style of West Texas people, nature, and history

AT Section Backpack – North Carolina Balds

Adventures in Good Company

The Appalachian Trail, while often rugged and remote, is designed to accommodate both people who want to hike the entire trail and those who choose to section hike it; that is, hike a new section every year. This year we continue our tradition of offering a new section hike. We will be backpacking in southern North Carolina winding through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain range and the remote Nantahala Wilderness area.

Hiking Utah’s National Parks

Adventures in Good Company

Southern Utah is home to four of the most well known National Parks, each with its own special magic and unique attractions. Zion National Park is famous for its soaring red Navajo Sandstone cliffs. Nearby Bryce Canyon is a testimonial to the erosive power of ice and rainwater, carving its colorful limestone into windows, fins, and soaring spires called hoodoos. Capitol Reef is a monument to the amazing power of uplift.

Slackpacking Vermont

Adventures in Good Company

The Appalachian Trail truly has mythic status and for many of us, hiking it is a dream. But then we look at the reality of it and find the prospect of carrying a 30 - 40 pound pack on our back and sleeping on the ground rather daunting. Solution? Slackpacking! We already offer slackpacking trips all along the trail and this year we're adding Vermont - a portion of the southern section of both the Appalachian Trail and the Vermont Long Trail.

Autumn on the Superior Hiking Trail

Adventures in Good Company

Backpacker Magazine calls the Superior Hiking Trail one of the ten best trails in America - and we agree! This trail combines a true sense of remoteness with an incredible diversity of terrain and dramatic scenery. Offering outstanding views of Lake Superior and diverse ecosystems, it winds along the ridge-tops of the Sawtooth Mountain Range for 200 miles from Two Harbors to the Canadian Border.

Hiking and Rafting Glacier National Park

Adventures in Good Company

Glacier National Park is truly one of the crown jewels of the National Park System. It has long been famous for having more glaciers than anywhere in the lower 48, and while there has been significant glacial melting in the past 30 years, they are still magnificent. The park is also known for an astounding array of jagged peaks, wildflowers, and abundant wildlife.

Slackpacking Maine

Adventures in Good Company

The Appalachian Trail truly has mythic status and for many of us, hiking it is a dream. But then we look at the reality of it and find the prospect of carrying a 40-50 pound pack on our back and sleeping on the ground rather daunting. Solution? Slackpacking! We cover the same distance as backpackers, but at the end of the day we return to a comfortable hostel with beds and hot showers. In contrast to the Georgia section, this section is flatter but the terrain and footing makes it more challenging. And we end the trip with climbing Mt Katahdin, a more significant climb than any we do in Georgia.

Alpine Backpacking in the Snowy Mountains

Adventures in Good Company

The wild west is full of granite spires, crystalline lakes, and cowboy sunsets. Wyoming is home to one such well kept secret, Medicine Bow National Forest. Here you can walk among fields of brilliant wildflowers with everything you need on your back, warm your feet by an open fire, and relax at the end of an invigorating hiking day with a mug of hot chocolate. Backpacking done right! After a few nights in the wilderness, unwind at the legendary Vee Bar Ranch. This trip is perfect for any hiker or backpacker wishing to refine backcountry camping skills and for those hoping to just enjoy alpine beauty.
