What you say about us

What our customers say about Outdoor Explore guided adventures

This was my fourth trip with Outdoor-Explore - the previous ones being canoeing and hiking in Canada and trekking in Nepal. They have all been well organised and enjoyable. The Middle Earth Trek is in the mountains north of Pemberton in an area where several of the peaks are named after characters in "The Lord of the Rings". Our route took five days and in that time we climbed mountains, hiked through forests, crossed boulder fields and snow slopes and wandered through Alpine meadows awash with flowers and dotted with lakes. From the summits there is an almost endless vista of dark mountains, green valleys and lingering snow. Given that everything has to be carried - tent, clothes, food, etc. - this should be considered as a tough trek but there was no rush and there was plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings. Even though there were limits on what we could carry, the food was well balanced and the quantities were just right. I already have my eyes set on another couple of treks with OE.

Why Outdoor Explore?

We know these lands.

We've hiked the trails, climbed the mountains, swam in the lakes and rivers. We work with the best local guides who have years of guiding experience, a high level of training and an extensive knowledge of the area. Most importantly, we believe in sustainable adventures and help to preserve the areas we operate in.

Custom Guided Trips

Adventure your way.

At Outdoor Explore we aim to be as flexible as possible, so that you feel that this is your adventure, and not a pre-set package. Our adventures and trekking vacations are based around a rough itinerary, but we are more than happy to discuss the plan and design a trip around your group. Find out more about custom adventures.
