Private Custom Trips

A Private Custom Hiking Tour is your opportunity to hike in perfect company! You pick the place, you tell us what you want, and we put a trip together just for your group. Whether it's a group of friends, associates, or your family, the trip is only open to your group. Choose from our great hiking destinations and get started today!

There are two approaches to creating a Custom Tour. The first option is to pick the tour you want, and we'll convert it into a private hiking trip for your group. The second option is to tell us what you want and if we don't have a tour that meets your desires we'll do our best to create a trip that fits what you're looking for. Please note that we assess custom requests on a case by case basis, and occasionally requests are infeasible for a variety of reasons.

The prices for Custom Tours are figured on a sliding scale and are listed below.

Give us a call at 800-715-HIKE (4453) to get the ball rolling!
