Backcountry = Everything that is used on the trip (i.e. food, tents, clothing, toilet paper, etc.) is taken with you under your own power (i.e. in a backpack while you hike, on a raft while you float down the river, or in your kayak as you paddle across a lake). There are no shower/bathroom facilities on these trips.
Lodge-Based = Think summer camp! The trip is based out of a central location with kitchen and lodging facilities. From there you travel for your various activities.
Water-Activities = Participants either travel via a raft or kayak to get from campsite to campsite, or have multiple day trips of water activities.
Service = These trips primarily focus on doing service projects in the greater-Portland area.
Rigor = How hard the trip is (5 is hardest). Though our trips cater to all ability levels, the backpacking trips are often the most difficult and the most remote thus receiving the most rigorous rating.
*Hiking Distance/Day = How much ground you can expect to cover when your trip is hiking. Almost all trips incorporate hiking into many of their activity days. Lodge-based trips usually split into smaller groups in order to offer some longer hikes and some shorter hikes on the same day.
Trip locations and descriptions are subject to change due to permitting and potential forest fire concerns.
