More Info

There is so much to do in the US, that you’ll probably have to visit more than once. If you’re visiting the East Coast and want to escape the city, upstate New York offers many interesting hiking and climbing options. There is also good skiing in Vermont and New Hampshire and some good rock climbing options in Virginia, close to Washington DC. In the center of the country and the West Coast, Colorado, Utah and California’s ski resorts offer skiers almost endless options. Wyoming’s Teton Range is world-famous for its backcountry skiing!. And if a trip to Alaska is on your bucket list, we can promise The Last Frontier won’t disappoint you!

Kaf Adventures is fantastic. I could not have asked for a better experience with my Intermediate Mountaineering class I took with Kaf. The instructors were knowledgeable, excellent teachers, supportive, and fun. I felt like I was in excellent hands. And I actually got the chance to use my new skills on our climb of Mount Baker, as I took a short fall and self-arrested! I had a great time climbing Mount Baker and improving my mountaineering skills with Kaf. Highly recommended.

Just took an intermediate rock climbing course.  What a fantastic class.  Our instructor was Joel and we started off covering all the different types of gear, static vs dynamic force, etc. before going into how to correctly and safely use it.  There were only 3 of us and with an 8 hour day we got lots of practice in. Joel was super patient and adapted the class to our skill level and the questions we had.    I walked away feeling like I could do this on my own safely.  Cannot recommend Kaf enough, if you\'re thinking of transitioning to outdoor climbing, call them up

I just got back from a 3-day Mountaineering Intermediate course on Mt. Baker, and I couldn\'t be happier that Kaf Adventures lead the way. Weather was ideal the first 2 days but on summit day the decision was made to stay put as conditions were questionable and miserable. Our 3 guides (Joel, Archer and Todd) were absolutely fantastic - extremely knowledgeable and high-energy and I loved how they infused the trip with their own personalities and experiences. They were constantly assessing and checking in with us to make sure we were all comfortable physically, mentally, spiritually. :) It was a feeling of complete comfort, which was most welcome in an environment I\'m naturally a little terrified of. Can\'t wait for my Rainier climb with Kaf, and to take more courses. I definitely recommend them, and can\'t say enough good things!

My next second training was an Intro to Mountaineering 3 day trip at Mt Baker. Our group included 5 clients, 3 instructors (Paul, Matt and Archer) and 1 Kaf intern (Austin). The Kaf team members were absolutely delightful people - very knowledgeable, approachable, patient and inspiring.  They did an excellent job preparing us for the mountain as well as keeping us safe & in high spirits despite some pretty gnarly weather that rolled through! Our summit attempt was cancelled due to a storm that hit Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning, but they kept us busy with training the entire time (not to mention very well fed!) The third training was a 3 night trip up Mt Rainier via Emmons Glacier. Paul, Archer and Austin again led our group (3 clients) up, up and to the summit! They were very attentive to everyone\'s condition the entire time - climbing Rainier was physically & mentally exhausting, and they knew when to encourage us to press on & hold back when needed. I definitely plan to climb more mountains in the NW and continue my training through Kaf Adventures. Absolutely recommend them to anyone who\'s excited to learn how to handle themselves up high
