National Parks Tour Experience
Prepare For Your Trip
Our trips are designed with the active travelers in mind. This means you don’t need tons of equipment or planning to just show up and enjoy your day. However, there are some steps you can take to make the steps on the trail that much more enjoyable.
Being comfortable in your personal gear is vital to your experience. Make sure your shoes are broken in, comfortable, and in good repair for your day on the trail. Not to mention your socks- it’s important to have socks to keep you warm and dry, and worth considering bringing along an extra pair in case they’re wet or uncomfortable along the way.
Training For Your Trip
The difficulty of ours tours is set on a scale from beginner to advanced. Ratings are determined based on the distance and elevation change on trail, and are conservatively assigned based on the speed of a group. Avid hikers will naturally have an easier time on trail, but this does not mean those new to hiking will struggle. An average level of fitness sets our guests up for success as our tours focus on the entire experience rather than an intense workout.
Weather & Logistics
Severe weather can cancel our trips, but a healthy amount of weather will not. For this reason it’s important to prepare for the weather, and make sure you have anything you’ll need to remain comfortable. Light rain or snow is all part of the experience, and should be looked at as an opportunity rather than a cause for concern. Weather can also vary the time it takes to arrive at the meeting point and other logistics concerns. Make sure to plan ahead with these concerns in mind to ensure you get the most time and enjoyment from your guided hiking tour!
