Available Expeditions:

Expeditions Foundations: The Roan Mountains - September 22-28, 2019

Think of this as a beginners guide to backpacking the AT. This trip features shorter distances, more guidance, and just as many awesome people exploring one of the best sections of our country's most renowned long-distance trail.
Best of the AT: The Grayson Highlands - October 6-12, 2019
This expedition is the slightly older brother of our foundations trips... You'll still be in for some relaxation in a gorgeous place, but with just a few added miles and some content geared more towards those with some hiking experience. Join this expedition and see how Switchback does vacation time!

What is Switchback Expeditions?

We believe that time with the natural world is an essential aspect of a healthy life. Exploring our planet offers the opportunity to conquer challenges, find companionship, seek solitude, and breakup a daily routine. Outdoor adventure is about health, wellness, self discovery, and finding what inspires you.

Those of us who take the time to disconnect from the clutter, noise, and distraction of our daily life usually thrive when reconnecting to the wilderness that is usually tantalizingly close in geography while also a distant reality in our day-to-day lives.

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 of adventure-seeking. Come solo, bring a friend, or make some new connections. No matter what happens, we know we'll give you an experience you won't forget.
