HALF DAY HIKES
There are many hikes in the Adirondacks that can be comfortably managed in 4 hours. Not only the Adirondack High Peaks offer extensive views in all directions. Destinations also do not have to include the summit of a mountain. Sunny rocks at remote swimming holes make excellent picnic spots for a memorable backcountry experience.
FULL DAY HIKES
An 8 -10 hour hike through the woods and over the peaks is certain to leave you with lasting memories. It is not always easy to know what is too much or too little for a day’s adventure. Having an experienced guide can help in choosing a hike that suites your abilities.
Explore the Adirondack backcountry during the wintertime and enjoy a completely different experience. Whether on snowshoes or skis, trips can be tailored to suit the abilities of all participants.
Wilderness backpacking takes hiking and experiencing nature to a new level. Learning the skills of backpacking can be overwhelming. Beginners tend to take either too much or too little gear. Not being properly prepared can lead to an unpleasant and potentially dangerous situation. During a trip with AOE, you will learn how to properly pack, safely set up an appropriate and comfortable campsite and leave no trace when you leave.
Very often, as children become teenagers, they tend to want to experience more than the family day hikes. Parents, however, don’t feel confident enough to take on the challenges of an overnight expedition. We can help by either taking JUST the teenagers or the whole family on a trip that will leave them with the skills and confidence to enjoy the world of backpacking for years to come.
Each trip is custom designed for your enjoyment based on your physical abilities and experience. Quality backcountry mountain trips range from 2 to 10 miles of backpacking each way.
At Adirondack Outdoor Expeditions (AOE) we focus on family-friendly guided exertions in the Adirondack High Peaks and beyond.
Adirondack Outdoor Expeditions (AOE) makes every effort to purchase locally provided foods and minimize waste by packing lightly. Clients will learn how this can be done without sacrificing quality meals that hit the spot after a day of hiking.
