Backpacking is one of the ultimate outdoor adventures.
To enjoy backpacking, you must be ok getting a little uncomfortable and be physically prepared to carry all of your food, equipment, and clothing on your back. If you prepare properly, a backpacking trip can be one of the most rewarding of all outdoor adventures. Going on a backpacking trip allows you to get further into the wilderness than on a day hike and to experience the solitude and beauty of an area without sharing your trails or campsites with many other hikers. It’s important to have lightweight backpacking-specific gear, plan your trip thoroughly, and train adequately before going on a backpacking trip. AOA’s guided backpacking trips offer a range of difficulty levels and the added safety of a professional guide. Joining a guided backpacking trip is a great way to get started.
