REI Adventures

Over 25 Years Traveling REI Style

Why has REI offered adventure travel trips for more than 25 years? To get people outdoors! It's really that simple.

For us, getting people outdoors is our mission, our goal, and our passion. And it's been that way for over 75 years! So whether you dream of cycling the winding roads of Zion National Park, exploring the unique flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands, trekking through the Himalayas, or joining us for a close-to-home weekend getaway, we're here to help you live that dream. With more than 150 different trips on every continent, you're sure to land on the trip of a lifetime, every time you travel with us.

REI Style Defined

Fantastic Travel Companions

One of the best parts of travel is who you meet along the journey. With an REI Adventures trip, you have a head start because you're traveling with fellow REI members who more than likely share your values and your passion to explore the world around you. Not only will you make connections with local people across the globe, you'll be traveling with new friends that you'll want to keep for life. But don't take our word for it, take theirs.

Active Trips that Explore the World

We can take you to all the places you've always wanted to go, to do the activities you love. You will be immersed in the natural beauty and culture of a place. And we do it in the REI way, welcoming those serendipitous travel moments that can't be planned and ultimately result in your best stories and memories from a trip. Chance encounters with wildlife, conversations with local residents, camaraderie with active like-minded travelers—these are the hallmarks of an REI Adventures trip.

Want a workout? You got it. Prefer taking it easy? No sweat. Traveling solo, with your family, or a group of friends? We can deliver. We optimize fun for everyone; and offer trips designed to suit every activity level and interest. Find the trip of your dreams today!

Guides Worth Following

Travel with us and you'll get to know a place like the back of your hand. You'll plunge into a region with access only a resident guide can offer. Our guides are musicians and scientist, Sherpas and chefs, each one passionate about the outdoors. Follow our guides away from the beaten path and you'll discover the unexpected. There's a world of truth and beauty waiting out there that's not found in any guidebook.

Active Caretakers of the Environment

Our trips are all about fun, but they'll make you feel good in other ways. For starters, REI Adventures promotes high ethical standards and works to minimize environmental impact. We practice leave no trace principles on all of our trips and whenever possible utilize reusable or recyclable materials. We print all our materials on Forest-Certified and recycled paper and use only soy based inks. These are just two of the many ways we lessen our impact on the planet. We invite you to learn more about our commitment to sustainability and stewardship.

And our responsibility doesn't end there. To help economies thrive, we patronize local businesses, from lodging to guides to restaurants. We create meaningful cultural exchanges with each region's people, and we treat their cultures and places with respect. It's not just the right thing to do; it's what makes each adventure truly unique.

Experience a Place, Don't Just Visit

While comfort is our top priority, we provide lodging that's out of the ordinary. On our trips, you might stay in an eco lodge high in the Andes, a genuine sheep shearers' quarters, or a tent perched on the flanks of a stunning mountain. You might wake to the cacophony of parrots with the aroma of your morning coffee or watch the sun set as you savor a delicious spread of regional specialties and wines. And speaking of food, we believe fresh local cuisine is one of the best ways to absorb a country's culture.

Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff

Every REI Adventures journey begins with one of our travel-savvy staff. When you call, you'll get first-hand knowledge about your trip. Not only can REI tell you what to bring and how to prepare for your adventure—we do know a thing or two about gear—we'll also share our own passion for the destination and the activities you'll be doing. You can trust our knowledge and attention to detail to make your trip the best you've ever taken.
