Porter Supported Trips The Portered Trip option denotes hiking and backcountry camping trips on which your gear will be carried in by human porters. These trips are still 100% hiking trips. You will be trekking with a light day pack that contains your water, personal items, trail snacks, and extra clothing. We provide all meals and camping gear.

Paddle and Hike
Our Paddle and Hike trips are on Fontana Lake in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We offer 1-day tours and a 3-day, 2-night kayaking and hiking adventure, all of which take guests across one of the most beautiful lakes in Appalachia. On the 3-day trip we camp on an island in the middle of the lake and paddle to the far shore on Day 2, where we embark on an exciting and intensely scenic day hike. Read more about these trips!
Backpacking Trips On a backpacking trip you'll camp in the backcountry and carry everything you need for the trip in a top-of-the-line, fitted backpack we provide. Pack weights vary between 25 and 45 pounds, depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and your height and weight. All meals are prepared by your guide and we provide nearly all the gear. Backpacking is an exceptional way to enjoy America's amazing public lands!

Inn-based Trips The Inn-based hiking option means you'll hike by day and at night sleep in cabins, hotels, huts or lodges. Food on these tours is a mix of field-prepared cuisine and restaurant meals at hand-picked establishments that reflect the culture and color of the area. Some of our tours feature a mix of camping and lodging. If you wish to have a room to yourself, please take note of the single room supplement, which varies by trip and is listed next to the price.
