WHY EXPLORE WITH US?
YOUR RECREATION TIME IS SACRED.
We know that you each hour spent on the trail is earned, not given.
Here at Expedition Detroit, we aim to reward your hard work with world-class
hiking, backpacking, or trail running adventures led by experienced and passionate guides.
At our core, each of our guides are local outdoor enthusiasts that have dedicated years of their life to developing skills in the outdoors.
From backcountry trips up north, out west, or around the world, to knowing our state parks like the back of their hands, our guides have the outdoor experience to successfully and safely guide you along each of our featured trails.
Each guide hired by Expedition Detroit has obtained the requisite experience and certifications to professionally, safely, and ethically lead guided trips.
Our qualifications include Wilderness First Aid certification, Leave No Trace Awareness certification, outdoor wilderness education, adherence to a Michigan DNR-approved safety plan, and activity-specific accolades.
Adventuring with a local guide means embarking on a journey led by an outdoor enthusiast with an undying passion for the Detroit region's outdoors.
Our guides have experienced the transformative power of our great outdoors - the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits obtained only by time spent in nature - and they can't wait to share their local knowledge and passion with you.
The core belief of Expedition Detroit is that our region is a world-class outdoor destination worth exploring, celebrating, and protecting.
