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....
