Description

Disconnect from the hustle and bustle of city life during this family friendly overnight backpacking trip in the beautiful wilderness of Washington State!

This is a great opportunity to spend some time with your family in the lovely Snoqualmie National Forest conveniently accessible from Seattle. During this beginner friendly trip, we will take a relaxing hike through the forest as we make our way to the clear waters of one of the area’s peaceful lakes, where we will set up our camp. Options include Annette Lake, Snow Lake, or Talapus and Olallie Lakes.

After meeting at the trailhead during the first day of the program, we will set off through the forest, moving at a comfortable pace. Along the way, we will discuss some backpacking basics that will come in handy for your next family camping trip. Specific topics  include: outdoor safety, Leave no Trace principles, packing tips and tricks, and meal planning and execution.

When we arrive at our camping spot, we will set up camp and begin preparing dinner. Afterwards, you will have time to further explore the area or to lounge by the lake, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the woods. After a restful night sleeping in our tent under the stars, we break camp after breakfast the next morning and hike out.

This is a great program for kids 9 years and older. Kids under 9 may participate if they have past experience hiking or camping with their family.

Book now for a fun weekend relaxing with your family in the lovely forest outside of Seattle! Plus, you will learn the basics of backpacking for all your family’s future backpacking and camping trips!

At Miyar Adventures, we know that every trip is as much about discovering yourself as it is about discovering the world. Miyar was founded because of our passion for climbing - a passion we will strive to share with you whether you join us for a trip close to home or in a remote corner of the Himalayas.

We strive to be your trusted companion as you chase your life-long dreams. We believe it is our duty to ensure that you are safe and that you have fun every time you climb with us.

We want to make climbing accessible to all adventure-seekers, regardless of their age and climbing background. And when we go climbing with seasoned climbers, we make sure they have enough of a challenge.

Miyar's guides have relevant training through the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) for the terrain in which they guide. This includes training in rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier travel, and snow sports, as well as avalanche training and Wilderness First Responder or higher level medical certification.

Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.

Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.

Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.

I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!

Myself and my daughter climbed Mt. Baker with Miyar Adventures via Easton Glacier route, Simon was our guide. The whole experience was epic in many ways. Simon's knowledge is excellent, I would trust him 100% in any situations that may come up on the mountain. We learned a lot and it was fun. The overall organization from Miyar was great (including informational emails from Jake and communication with Sandeep). Great company that I would choose again in a heartbeat.
