Update, December 5, 2013
Information about 2014 trips is currently being added, updated, and edited. The information posted now is mostly correct — including, most importantly, the schedule — but some information has not yet been confirmed, including some exact locations. Please be patient during this time.
I expect that registration for most trips will open to returning clients in January and to new clients in February. Registration will open earlier for the Backpacking Fundamentals trips in Texas in mid-February and for the Winter Backpacking course in late-February.
“It’s like learning from the Yoda of backpacking.”
– Alan York, Winston-Salem, NC
“Andrew Skurka is the quintessential 21st century outdoorsman, with outdoor skills and athleticism honed to a fine art.”
– Patrick Starich, Calgary, Alberta
“My hike with Andrew and the group was an incredibly rewarding, once in a lifetime opportunity. I would highly recommend one of his guided trips.”
– Drew Anthony, Starksville, MS
For the 2014 season I am offering four types of trips:
Invest in your backpacking future by avoiding years of “learning the hard way.” Learn about and apply the gear, supplies and skills that make hiking fun, not work.
For the 2015 season, I will likely offer most or all of the trips above, plus:
A bucket-list backpacking experience. Hike through breath-taking alpine tundra, follow caribou and bear trails, and packraft across and down glacier-fed rivers.
