The popularity of the North America backpacking trips has led to the introduction of trips to backpack Patagonia, taking in the remoteness and rugged beauty of this South American region famous for its wildlife. They are the first of REI’s itineraries to the destination and are to include exploring Fitz Roy, Los Glaciares National Park and the region’s trekking capital of El Chalten. During the excursions travellers can hike through lenga forests, meadows, across glaciers, iceberg-laden bays and moraines and take in some of the areas spectacular views including the world’s second largest non-polar ice mass. Other activities are to include kayaking, cycling and access to the W trail for some volunteering work to help maintain the trail.


Three itineraries have been introduced to explore Shenandoah National Park offering a multisport adventure, lodge to lodge hiking or a cycling weekend.

The Shenandoah was declared a national park in 1925 to be one of the first in the east of the USA. The trips will run from spring when the blossom is out until Autumn for the vibrant colours. The park is home to many hiking routes, the Appalachian Trail, rocky peaks, wetlands, waterfalls, caverns, a treetop zip line, anthodite, birds and the black bear. A four-day backpacking trip is also due to be added.

For national park lovers, trips to the Grand Canyon are also to be expanded. Six new itineraries offering 14 new adventures have been introduced. Hiking, cycling and backpacking are the main attractions for this famous area.

In Norway, two new itineraries have been added to include the Lofoten Islands hiking and cycling around the fjords. These give travellers the opportunity to hike up glacier carved mountains, kayak, discover the local fishing communities, cruise a fjord, watch for eagles, visit the island of Værøy and swim in the cold waters.
