Description

The famous Appalachian trail is one of the longest hiking trails in the world. Stretching over 3,500 kilometres, this amazing trekking route is visited by millions of people very year. And while you obviously won’t get to see the whole trail on this full day snowshoeing trip, you will get to see a small, but beautiful portion of it, near the wonderful Canopus lake, in the state of New York.

With crisp winter winds and snow draped landscape, the roughly 8 kilometre stretch that we will guide you along will give you the chance to see some wonderful natural scenery. And because we will be travelling at a leisurely pace, you will have plenty of time to enjoy that scenery. We will also stop at various points along the way as well. Hence giving you the chance to see the Canopus Lake and portions of the Appalachian trail from different vantage points.

The trip is also not that difficult. As a result, you do not have to be an expert in hiking or snowshoeing to participate. However, you should be in good enough physical condition to finish the 5 mile hike.

The Appalachian trail is a must for any hiking enthusiast. And whether it’s the summer or winter season, trekking along the trail is a memorable experience. And on this full day snowshoeing trip, we would like to guide you along a small part of that trail, culminating in the beautiful Canopus lake.

So send us a request, and let us guide you. The scenery, the serenity and the trail await.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
