In Her Words

Laura D.Laura D. ★★★★★ Had a fantastic time on the Smoky Mountains Boots and Roots Hiking trip!Anna R.Anna R. ★★★★★ Just got back from a trip (in the Smokey Mountains) with Anna and Jess - the trip was outstanding!!! They were both so knowledgeable of our hikes, extremely helpful, and so fun! The glamping site was lovely! And the food was fabulous! Highly recommend Anna and Jess - they made the trip very memorable!Amanda W.Amanda W. ★★★★★ This was an unforgettable experience. My leads Anna and jessica made me feel completely confident and comfortable while we hiked gorgeous and challenging trails. They showed us with so many fun surprises along the way and created a space for us to be ourselves, together. I will definitely be booking another trip!Sarah C.Sarah C. ★★★★★ I was fortunate to be on EC's inaugural Norway trip - all I can say is GO! The trip was beyond my expectations- from our awesome EC Guide Christina and local Guide Christine to the 6 strong and supportive women I spent 7 days with exploring the stunning and other-worldly beauty of Norway! The accommodations were so cool - lodges and fishing cabins filled with character and very comfy! Hikes were challenging and provided TONS of photo opps - and our Guides took great care of us along the way! Food? Delicious and they accommodate dietary needs super well - and if you are a fish lover, you will be in pescatarian paradise! This was my first group trip - I was nervous about traveling with people I hadn't met and being able to do the hikes, but those butterflies were quickly calmed when I met Christina, Christine and my fellow Explorer Chicks! Thank you, EC, for a memorable, fun-filled and fabulous trip through Norway!!Connie M.Connie M. ★★★★★ I went on the half dome trip and WOW! Being at the top of half dome for sunset was amazing. Our guide, Kalya, was fantastic. Thank you Kayla and the wonderful ladies in our group for the memories! - ConnieJesse P.Jesse P. ★★★★★ This weekend we spent a couple of days backpacking with Explorer Chick Adventure Co. in the RedRiver Gorge of Kentucky. It was such an awesome experience! It was honestly one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. Those packs weren’t just huge - they were heavy! And the trail was quite aptly named the Rough Trail, haha. Steep inclines and fallen trees were just par for the course along our route. The wonderful guides left me feeling confident and excited about continuing my outdoor adventures. This place was beautiful, and I hope to visit it again someday. Lauren was an incredible guide and Jodi and Amy were awesome.Jeneta I.Jeneta I. ★★★★★ Anna & Kara-Great guides and hosts! Went to Smoky Mountains trip. Amazing experience. Thank you for everything you did for our group! 🙏🏼🌸keebler9111231keebler9111231 ★★★★★ Went on the Alaskan adventure with Nicole B and Kayla L as our spectacular guides!! Everything was jam packed-n-top notch adventure fun. Starting off with an exhilarating hike to a few glacial lakes, to ice climbing and sea kayaking. All the event guides we encountered were superb as well. We hiked some more, saw the copper mines and many different cities, a little history, a little dart throwing and dinner. Went to the fish hatchery, saw some sea lions and learned how the salmon is bred to be the best in Alaska. The guide prepared food was excellent every detail was well thought and appreciated and I felt safe the entire trip. Would definitely go on another EC adventure again! LisaLaura J.Laura J. ★★★★★ What an amazing trip to Alaska. If you have been wanting to go to Alaska, go with them. It’s a huge state with so much to see and do, but this 7 day trip will give you a great overview. The guides were outstanding and handled all aspects of the trip with grace.Victoria C.Victoria C. ★★★★★ I am so excited to start thus new journey and be a part of explorer chick!!!!! Amazing!!Dorianne H.Dorianne H. ★★★★★ Wow !!! This trip with Explorer Chicks was truly amazing. We went to Yosemite and backpacked and hiked Half Dome. Such a fantastic trip with so many emotions and thrills of accomplishment. Hats off to our guide Kirstie Mulliken, she is such an amazing guide. She herself, backpacked with 55lbs, 😳😳😳 She made us incredible meals (and wouldn’t even allow us to help her clean up), she empowered us to push ourselves and over all, she is an incredible person at such a young age. She made our trip memorable and we can’t wait to search for another trip, and hopefully have her as a guide !!!!Ida B.Ida B. ★★★★★ I went to the San Juan Islands with Ashley, Nicole, and Moll as our guide. We kayaked to the northwestern-most point in the continental united states. There was bioluminescence and seals and starfish. The campsite was hospitable with a view of the entire harbor, fresh running water, and toilet facilities. We had such a wonderful time.Ashley C.Ashley C. ★★★★★ I did the RRG backpacking trip at 40! It was definitely a challenge, but so fun! Can't wait for my next adventure in a less than 2 months!Stephanie M.Stephanie M. ★★★★★ I just went on my first explorer trip to Alaska with Christina and Nicole. It far exceeded my expectations, especially me being 22 years old. This adventure group is truly for all ages and it was such an amazingly fun trip for me. Hiking some big miles and elevation, bush plane, ice climbing on a glacier, sea kayaking, and amazing views. 10/10 would recommend this trip to anyone!Amanda GAmanda G ★★★★★ I recently returned from my first EC trip backpacking in Yosemite with a summit of Half Dome at sunset. It was incredible, well organized, and our guide Kirstie was absolutely phenomenal! Definitely not my last EC adventure. They do a really nice job of creating a unique and memorable experience.js_loader
