Why travel with REI?

Because we know the outdoors, we know adventure, and we know the locals (and they know everything).

Adventure travel reimagined

For decades, we’ve been leading trips to the world’s most storied places, but doing it the REI way. Much more than sightseeing expeditions, these are wholly immersive experiences you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

And no matter what you want to do, or who you’d like to travel with, we’ve got you covered. We lead women’s trips, family adventures, bike tours and trips for folks under 35.

Guides who grew up there

Our expert guides don't just know these places―they call them home. Their local knowledge opens up worlds that few get to see. You'll hike undiscovered trails to uncharted treasures, and learn the history, traditions and legends of the people and places you'll meet along the way.

Travel with a purpose

We practice Leave No Trace principles on all our trips, and work with local people and businesses as often as possible, reinvesting in the communities we cherish so much. REI invests millions of dollars in environmental causes, and we also lead volunteer vacations to preserve and rebuild some of Earth's most precious places.
