Travel North with us to take in some of the majesty of the most rugged mountains in New England! Campers will be tent camping in the middle of the White Mountains at Dry River Campground. Day hikes will consist of exploring Franconia Notch and summiting one of the New Hampshire’s 4,000 footers. Hikes will range from 5 to 8 miles per day or less. After a week of tent camping and hiking, we will take to the tree tops for a zip-line canopy tour and hit up North Conway on the way home to unwind! Evenings will be spent next to a campfire preparing meals, telling stories and playing games.
