Whether you're hiking, trail running, camping, or kayaking—we know where to go, how long it will take, what you should pack, the coolest stuff along the way, and where to go for dinner and drinks after. You won't have to worry about getting lost, treating an injury, or encountering a bear solo—we've got you covered. Traveling with us gives you the freedom to enjoy your surroundings and learn more from a knowledgeable and skilled outdoor guide.
In short, we will help you have your best adventure!
That's why we only lead trips to the best places, offer the best snacks, and keep group sizes small. Most trips are limited to 6-8 people to provide everyone more opportunity to connect with fellow adventurers, your guide, and the natural world. You can read more about our company ethic here.
Treat your friends to a Custom adventure, or make new ones on a Social Trip. Trips start at $44 /person for half-day hikes; 54$ /person for kayak trips.
Hike, run, paddle, and play in the Hudson Valley and Catskills! These are the best NYC day trips for getting outside and connecting with nature. Public transportation or a 90-minute drive will get you to most trip meeting places.
All trips are priced for private groups of 1-2 or 3-6 people, so grab your favorite friends and family, and treat them to an adventure!
From stream-side camping, to a mountain-top brunch, to a hike + bike + kayak-kind of day, we will tailor an outdoor trip just for you. We offer corporate outings, environmental education programs, family-friendly activities, and more.
These are the best day hikes in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Choose a Hike + Picnic, and we'll provide you with the same quality (yet trail-friendly) dining experiences that we choose for ourselves.
