Switchback Expeditions

Adventurers wanted.

Switchback Expeditions will provide more than outdoor adventures.

We believe that time with the natural world is an essential aspect of a healthy life. Through exploring our planet we have the incredible opportunity to conquer challenges, find companionship and solitude, breakup our daily routines, and ultimately be inspired by the beauty around us. This is about health, wellness, self discovery, and finding what inspires you.

Those of us who take the time to truly disconnect from the clutter, noise, and distractions in our routines so-often thrive when reconnecting to the green and blue, rocky or soft, quite and raging wilderness that is often laughably close in geography but so distant in our reality.

We have to make time for the outdoors to work its magic in each of us.

That's why we created Switchback Expeditions. Join us on our adventures. Let us do the legwork so you can focus on the best parts. Come solo, bring a friend, or make some new connections along the way. No matter what happens, we know we'll give you an experience you won't forget.
