Plan & Go™ Guides

Researching the necessary information for your next self-guided adventure yourself is very time-consuming and always carries a risk of missing important details. Consulting an expert or hiring a tour guide is costly and may limit your flexibility. Plan & Go Guides are the smart alternative to both of these options as they offer well-researched information paired with first-hand experience for a wide range of outdoor recreation activities.

Each guide features a particular expedition and provides essential detail to inspire and support outdoor enthusiasts in the process of carefully choosing and diligently planning their next self-guided tour. Clearly structured facts, practical insights, and step-by-step instructions will enable readers to be thoroughly prepared and to get going faster.

Hiking Series

Our Hiking Series is perfect for novice and experienced hikers who enjoy exploring unique places in the great outdoors as well as the physical and mental challenges arising from it. Each guidebook features a popular multi-day backpacking route and includes essential information to aid hikers in diligently preparing and successfully completing their own trip.

Readers will learn about the highlights and unique features of the trail and get specific details on logistical aspects, such as permit requirements, travel arrangements, camping options, food and resupply preparation, as well as proper gear selection. In addition, special planning tools help create a personalized itinerary that matches individual needs and abilities. To give hikers an even more realistic idea of what to expect and what to look forward to, each title also includes an honest account of the author’s personal experience on the trail.
