What Will You Need To Bring Along
To put it simply – not much.
We at World’s Best Adventures want to ignite your passion for the outdoors, whether you’re new to hiking and the outdoors or a seasoned backpacker. But we also know how daunting it can be to find the right gear, find the right trails, find the right group, and then actually get out and come back safe.
So let us do the heavy lifting.
Sign up for this trip and we’ll provide the biggest most expensive pieces of gear you’ll need; breakfast, dinners, snacks, drinks, and goodies for the duration of the trip; and a slew of lessons on hiking and the outdoors from seasoned professionals.
You’ll bring yourself (duh), clothes, boots, a sleeping bag (which we can help you find or even provide for an additional cost), spork and a few other essentials.
