Backpacking: Yes you can.

This was my first experience with REI Adventures as well as my first time backpacking. I felt safe and supported, and it was an excellent way to learn. Everything about this trip was well-organized and perfectly executed. - Yve Renee, Superstition Mountains Backpacking

Who’s up for a bike ride?

Sunshine, biking and camping—it felt like a great summer vacation. This trip is a total release from whatever else was going on before. REI Adventures are a fantastic value. I’m already planning my next one! - Kevin, Arizona Sonoran Desert Weekend Cycling
