Inn-based Trips

On our inn-based hiking tours you can focus 100% on the trekking experience while we take care of everything else. Your only "job" is absorbing and enjoying all the destination of your choice has to offer - its breathtaking views, challenging and fulfilling days of hiking, awe-inspiring natural and cultural history, wildlife, and unique natural wonders.

You'll hike by day and at night sleep in cabins, hotels, lodges, homestays, huts (Iceland), refugios (Patagonia) or teahouses (Nepal). The character and amenities of these accommodations vary significantly by destination and trip, some being quite elaborate and others being very basic. Some of our tours feature a mix of camping and lodging. To have a room to yourself, where available, please take note of the single room supplements.

Give us a call at 1-800-715-HIKE (4453) to learn more about any of our Inn-based hiking tours!
