All you need to know about Active Travel Tours

What is an Active Tour?

This is an "Active" lifestyle itinerary, with walks and hikes most days. Hikes will range from easy/moderate to strenuous. No technical climbing skills are required, but a reasonable level of fitness is required to make the trip more enjoyable. We understand that not all people want to hike at the same pace or even on the same trail, so where possible, we'll host a map orientation and then let everyone disperse to enjoy the trails best suited to them.

What should I pack?

Before you head off on your active travel tour, you’ll need to get prepared. Guests should bring lightweight hiking shoes or boots, layered clothing, a reusable water bottle, and a hiking day pack. You may also like to bring hiking poles. Another crucial packing item is your sun protection. You’ll need a broad-brimmed sun hat, high-SPF sunscreen, and UV-protected sunglasses.

What about the weather & altitude conditions on Active Tours?

While the itinerary is laid out, we are at the mercy of the weather and so reserve the right to adjust the program as necessary. Please keep in mind that the higher elevations and possible variations in weather and temperature can increase the perceived level of difficulty of our activities. Elevation ranges up to 9,000 feet for Utah’s Mighty Five and up to 11,000 feet for California High Country Adventure. Everyone reacts differently to altitude, so if you do have any health issues you should check with your doctor that this trip is suitable for you.
