Backpacking Trips


Backpacking in Slickhorn Canyon


"We have already recommended MNA’s programs to our friends and will continue to do so because MNA offers programs that assume intelligence on the part of the participants. This trip was educational and fun! Thanks.” —D.B. and K.B.

Like other MNA Ventures, our wilderness trips focus on providing a quality educational experience in the outdoors. These trips explore regions that are inaccessible to all except those who travel by foot, boat, or bicycle. Wilderness camping is part of the experience. These expeditions last up to 6 days and vary widely in their level of difficulty, so be sure to check the descriptions to decide which is best for you.

Our guides are not only the most knowledgeable and experienced educators in the business, but they are also the most enthusiastic. Most importantly, they know how to present even the most complex concepts in a way that is accessible to all participants.

Unless otherwise noted, our trips include meals, transportation, and group gear; you only need to bring your personal gear. We do all the planning and cooking, so you can enjoy yourself and focus on the learning experience.
