The Multi-Day Trip Experience
Adventure + Vacation
It may be adventure, but we never forget that this is your vacation
Going on a guided trip has a lot of benefits. It’s easier to get to remote locations because we do all the logistical planning. Permits and reservations are completely taken care of for you. You get the opportunity to learn and build on your outdoor skills with the added support of a professional guide to cover all details of safety and risk management.
Great Food and Comforts of Home
No matter whether you’re on a rugged backpacking trip or a luxe custom tour we pride ourselves on providing delicious 3 course meals on every trip. We use fresh ingredients as much as possible, source snacks locally, and have an extensive track record managing for even the most complex of dietary restrictions. Past experience with serious food allergies, kosher menus, and all vegan trips has helped us hone our skills to ensure we offer wholesome and nutritious meals to every trip guest to keep you energized and safe through your entire tour.
All trips are rated for comfort (you can find this in the Nitty Gritty details), but we strive to keep our guests basic needs met even on our most rugged trips with handy tools like solar heated shower bags and extra comfortable airpads from Big Agnes for optimal sleep when you rent AOA gear.
The AOA team was extremely accommodating regarding our group’s serious food allergies and stayed in close communication with us as they prepared the menu, food shopped, and even cooked.
Safe and Professional
There are many people out there who can call themselves outdoor guides, AOA is different from them in that we are a professional business holding permits in every area that we operate tours. Our guides are all certified in Wilderness First Response, Leave No Trace principles, safe driving, and food safety. We take pride in having a strong record in compliance, safety, and risk management to ensure we do everything possible to protect the health and well-being of all participants while on an AOA tour.
Make a Trip Private
If you are interested in taking a private trip with your own group, we can make our standard departures private. Price depends on your group size.
Build Your Own Custom Trip
Designing a custom adventure trip is not easy and many travel companies won’t do it. AOA has been building custom trips for over 20 years and we’re experts in tailoring an itinerary to fit your group’s unique goals, needs, timeframe, and level of comfort.
