I haven't enjoyed myself like that in a long time. Two beautiful campsites, totally different from one another; a very pleasant hiking pace.Glenn R.

I enjoyed every aspect of this trip. The guides were the greatest. I hope to backpack with you again soon.Cathy F.

I loved the rappelling and the yoga in the cave, and of course, I always love hiking. The food was excellent, Linda and Kristy did a great job preparing it. The cabins were great, loved having the wood burning fireplace, and there was plenty of space for 4 people. The employees at the resort, from the restaurant to the guides, were all so nice.Name Withheld

Workshops were very good and spread throughout the weekend. I felt comfortable asking questions. Candy A.

I liked the info about what to pack and how to pack it. This was the most helpful for me. I also learned about the wonders of trekking poles, which I now love.Carri W.

It was fun, exciting, challenging, informative and the guides were the best.Bettina H.

The guides were terrific! Very kind and encouraging. The workshops were very informative- but I most just enjoyed all the stories and great tips that were shared throughout the trip. This was the best thing I have done for myself in a long time!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.Laura H.

The trip was wonderful and inspiring. My favorite part was crossing the river. I can not think of any changes needed. It was also nice to meet others interested in backpacking. It was impressive how hard the guides worked to assist us setting up camp on a rainy day and then cooking so many different foods for us to try. I will book another trip!Sally D.

The views were beautiful! I enjoyed meeting new hikers.Yvonne E.
