Hiking has always been an essential element of many OARS adventure trips, leading our guests on incredible hikes that are only accessible from the river since 1969. Over the years, combining our love for hiking with what we do best—guiding—we’ve established a full series of guided hiking tours.
Designed for our travelers who regularly hike, run, bike and lead an active lifestyle, OARS guided hiking vacations take travelers into pristine wilderness areas and include in-depth exploration with our friendly, knowledgeable guides. And whether it’s a hiking-intensive rafting trip, a raft-supported hiking trip or a lodge-to-lodge trek, you’ll find all the creature comforts and delicious meals you’ve come to expect on an OARS adventure.
From bucket list trips like trekking to Machu Picchu in Peru or exploring the peaks, creeks and waterfalls of Yosemite National Park, to a raft-supported trek on the 39.5-mile Rogue River Trail in Oregon, all of our hiking trips are thoughtfully designed to meet the needs and interests of our travelers while featuring the very best a region has to offer. And if you’ve ever dreamed of hiking the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim, including a stay at one of the exclusive lodges in the country—Phantom Ranch—we’ve got you covered there too. All you have to do is show up ready for the challenge.
So join us on one of our unique hiking tours and we’ll show you the unforgettable nature of an active OARS vacation.
