What Are The Physical Requirements For A Trip?

There is no minimum physical ability needed to attend any of our retreats. Trips can be modified to suit the abilities of individuals and groups. All that is required is good health, which means your doctor would approve of you going for a walk in the woods. Our trips are more mental than they are physical. Most likely you will be challenged to step out of your comfort zone. We will encourage this but will also allow the option of choosing to opt out of challenge that may feel overwhelming.

What Should I Pack?

The packing/gear list are different depending on whether or not we camp or rent cabins. Each event will post a specific suggested packing list.

How Are Medical Emergencies Addressed?

WTR guides are medically trained for wilderness emergency scenarios. Based on the severity of the situation, your guide(s) will handle it accordingly. In most cases front country emergency services are nearby.

Are Dates Flexible?

Alternative dates from those on our website may be reserved for private groups or individuals, if available. Please contact us with your preferences and questions.
