Detroit is a world-class outdoor destination worth exploring, celebrating, and protecting.

That is the core belief of Expedition Detroit, we invite you to join our rapidly growing community of outdoor enthusiasts that share this vision and are actively discovering the lifetime of outdoor opportunities within an hour’s drive of Downtown Detroit. Whether it's a morning hike on a wooded trail, paddling through a pristine river, ripping down a mountain bike trail, finding a new ski line, or watching the sunset from a tree stand, Detroit's outdoors have the natural beauty and wealth of experiences that recreationists of any interest, skill level, age, or background can uncover, explore, and enjoy.

The mission of Expedition Detroit is to create and accelerate value for Detroit’s emerging outdoor industry. Our business creates content celebrating our  region’s best outdoor experiences, leads guided trips for hands-on exploration of our most beautiful destinations, facilitates access to top tier retailers, amplifies key voices within the recreational community, and highlights the value of an outdoor lifestyle.


We vow to always support conservation through promoting impactful organizations, educating our community on landmark laws and regulations, and  publicizing volunteer opportunities.


Every business has its own definition of success. Ours is simply the moment when our core belief - that Detroit is a world-class outdoor destination worth exploring, celebrating, and protecting - becomes common knowledge on a global scale.


Until then, our passion will drive us to continue innovating within Detroit's outdoor industry. We will always aim to create content and share experiences that inspire new adventures, increase recreational opportunities, support outdoor lifestyles, and protect the best of the Detroit region for generations to come.


We can’t wait to see you out there.
