Are you a wilderness lover? Join our professional guides for an overnight backpacking trip in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest. Meet your guide in the Boston area and relax in our spacious van for the drive north. We'll cover up to 10 miles over two days in the forested wilds of the Sandwich Range Wilderness. On arrival at our backcountry campsite, you'll set up camp and settle in to enjoy an evening under the tree canopy next to a serene backcountry pond with new friends and your experienced guides. On your trip you'll learn about and practice campsite selection, camp cooking techniques, water treatment, route finding, wildlife precautions, and many other skills to set you up for success for future trips on your own. The best part about this program? We do all the planning and provide all necessary backpacking gear - you just have to show up!
