This Backpacking trip gives you the power to create your own once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With guides who have grown up exploring these mountains we can take you to the most remote peaks, iconic waterfalls, and scenic high mountain vistas untouched by tourism. We want this to be a life-long memory, tell us the scenery you are wanting to immerse yourself in, terrain, distance and difficulty; then leave the rest of the work up to us!

If you have a particular destination you're wanting to hike to please let us know (Pisgah National Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail, South Beyond 6,000'). With the most accommodating and knowledgeable guides in the Southeast there is an excellent chance we can get you to your destination, in style and with smiles all around! In addition to your guide, this price includes essential backpacking gear for the trip, all on-trail food, and any necessary backcountry permits. It does not include gratuity for your guide.

Three Day Itinerary

This is a loose description, custom trips are planned according to each individual trip.

We will meet at 8am at a location TBD based on your trip.

We will be on trail all day until we reach camp one. Here we will set up camp, enjoy a delicious meal, take in a breathtaking sunset, and relax by the fire watching the stars.  

Day two will hopefully start out with an epic sunrise. We will eat breakfast, break camp (if required), and commence the days adventures.

We will enjoy an on-trail lunch, prepared for you as you take in the views.

Night two will find us in camp, following the same itinerary as the night before.

Day three will start the same as day two with a, hopefully, epic sunrise, guide prepared breakfast, and breaking camp.

From here we will head to the trailhead. Based on distances and customization we may eat on-trail, we may eat at a scenic overlook en-route to town, or we may head into town for a hot meal.

Optional Add-Ons For A Better Experience

Gourmet Backcountry Hot Meal

$ 150

Prepared by a local professional chef, upgrade your backcountry picnic to a gourmet meal while experiencing breath-taking views. All prepared for you, so you don't lift a finger. These are priced per meal.

Portered Trek

$ 440

Carry nothing, we will carry your gear for you. All you carry is your personal items, and drinking water for the day. One of our porters will carry your gear for you the entire trip. We only offer this service on this trip. This service DOESN'T mean you can be out of shape, we will still go through some very difficult terrain.
