Explore a California treasure on this overnight backpacking trip in Big Sur, which includes meals, equipment, and experienced guides.
Even in California, home of awe-inspiring redwood forests and some of the world's best surf breaks, there is perhaps no place as special as Big Sur. Beginning just south of the Monterey Peninsula and stretching 90 miles past verdant bluffs and rocky promontories, hidden hot springs and vacant beaches, this scarcely populated region on the Central Coast has been the subject of more than a few books, and plays host to some of the country's preeminent wellness retreats. It's a place beloved by honeymooners, outdoorsmen, and peace-seekers alike, with nary a neon sign to disrupt the mind-easing serenity that has drawn people here for centuries. Experience the majesty of Big Sur on an overnight backpacking trip with Bay Area Expeditions.
On the Big Sur overnight trip, you'll trek two and a half miles each way along relatively flat trails through redwood forests with occasional ocean views. You'll practice archery, enjoy gourmet backpacker meals, and get hands-on training with cooking and outdoors skills. Your guide will provide information on the local area and all campers are provided with a backpack, headlamp, and more top-quality gear.
