Rooted in Adventure. Rooted in Appalachia.

Expeditions

Our Appalachian Expeditions are rooted in adventure. We create a safe and fun learning environment whether exploring by foot, boat, or bike. All of our expeditions take place in the rugged wildlands of West Virginia where we learn about the landscape, our expedition community, and ourselves.
