Our Philosophy: Wilderness for All
The wilderness is not the exclusive domain of specially trained & equipped athletes! 99% of all Wilderness is accessible with skills no more specialized than walking up and down stairs, something all NY’ers have experience with! Whether you’re seeking your first night under the stars or your Catskill 3500 membership, on our adventures you can expand your comfort zone and experience exciting new things, secure in the knowledge that you will be supported, encouraged and led by the most experienced, prepared and knowledgeable guides based in NYC.
We’ll share dozens of tips, tricks and skills we’ve picked up that will make you feel safe, comfortable and at home in the wilderness, but if we took the time to list them all, we’d never get outdoors!
Why Wilderness? Only you can know and only when you're there
Quality time in wild places connects us to something greater than ourselves and provides peace and perspective so elusive in our urban lives. At times, we are gifted with enlightenment; we see ourselves in the beautiful, intertwined web of life and scope of time and realize our place in it all. Trained to observe and interpret, your guides will share their extensive knowledge of the ecology, geology, and human and natural history to help you relocate your place in the natural order of things. Everyone finds their own type of peace in the wilderness, but you’ll only know it when you find it for yourself.
