Guided Trips with Andrew Skurka

Off trail travel in the Alaskan backcountry.

There's one person that stands alone in the realm of adventurous lightweight backpacking, and that's Andrew Skurka. He's running a series of guided trips for the summer of 2012, and his site is linked HERE.

There are two offerings, one is a three-day / two-night skills course. This is a way to build a strong foundation in lightweight backpacking competence.

The longer option is a 7-day / 6-night wilderness expedition. The focus will be advanced skills in a premiere backcountry setting.

The summer schedule hasn't been finalized, but I'm honored to be among the talented guides working with Andrew this summer.
