Member Love!

What an amazing experience. I am new to backpacking and booked my first ever trip with AcadianaX to Glacier National Park. Every detail is thought out and planned. They ensured I was ready physically, they reviewed training plans, gear, food, and made sure you knew every detail before the hike. We were each provided with a packet that had everything from flights, car rentals, hotels, trails and campsites. It had the history of where we were going and detailed out what we should expect. I would highly recommend doing a trip with this group.

I booked my first trip as a novice backpacker last year. I was intimidated by what I didn’t know at the time but that quickly changed. The staff of AcadianX are all very experienced and knowledgeable and were willing to share that knowledge. From gear selections to clothing options to real wilderness hacks, AcadianX is where you want to begin your ADVENTURE!
I hiked Zion and was thoroughly prepared. Almost felt guilty about eating so well. The group has a solid culinary background and it really shows.
From food to training to water crossings, these guys truly love what they do and do it well.

Booked 2 trips with this group and was thoroughly impressed. Logistics were sound, preparation help was off the charts, navigation skills were on point, and the food...the food...the food was outstanding!!! Never ate so good on the trails. Yellowstone and Zion were my 2 trips and I can’t wait for my next adventure. Explore Your World!
