**Since we are 1/2 way through the year, this is a mix of 2022/2023 trips 😉
- NORTHERN LIGHTS PHOTO SAFARI ~ FEB 2023
Join Kim in Fairbanks, Alaska, for a photo safari to (hopefully!) capture the Northern Lights! Kim will be teaching Night Sky Photography on this trip. We will go when during the new moon in February so that the sky is dark giving us the best chance to see the Northern Lights. Next year we will be taking our photo safari to Norway so if you miss this one, check out the photos on @mtnspiritslife on Instagram and drop us a line!
- GREENLAND HELI SKI ~ APRIL 2023
Somehow Pete has managed to NOT miss a season in Greenland since 2020 ~ even during COVID. Pete and Greenland have a special relationship and skiing with Pete in Greenland is hands down THE MOST EXCLUSIVE ski trip on earth! This year we will ski from the new ship, Tulu, owned and Skippered by our same beloved partners, Ellen and Anders. Each day we will explore a new fjord and adjacent mountain range sharing no runs with other helicopters or skiers. Come and experience Polar Powder for yourself and see why Pete is returning for his 23rd season in a row!
- ICELAND HELI SKI & SKI TOURING ~ MAY 2023
Iceland has become one of the world’s top tourist destinations and what better way to see Iceland? Pete joins up with local Icelandic guides that offer the most unique ski experience in Iceland. Skiing with Pete on the Troll Peninsula is a great way to combine skiing with possible viewing the Aurora Borealis! Muscles recover in the many hot springs of Iceland. Down day activities are endless in this land of cultural and geological beauty. Email Pete for more info!
- CANYONLANDS/BEARS EARS FUND RAISER HIKING with Kim ~ MARCH/APRIL 2023
Join Kim in Canyonlands for a fantastic backpacking trip to raise money for Nepali families. Kim has been guiding in Canyonlands for 20 years and is able to show you the best of what the desert has to offer: ruins, panel, pictographs. Each trip is (roughly) 4 nights/5 days either backpacking or day hiking from camp deep in Bears Ears.We are also able to organize day hikes from VRBO accommodations for those not into backpacking or camping. Contact Kim for itineraries and details ~ space is limited and popular!
- DOLOMITES ~ ITALY AUGUST 2023
Escape the smoke in the west with this lovely hiking/via ferrata trip that can be customized for your family or friends for any week in the summer! We begin this adventure in Arco, Italy, the heart of adventure in the Italian Alps. After a couple of days of exciting adventures in Arco, we head into the stunning Brenta Group of the Dolomites. Day by day we hike through the Brenta sleeping and dining in comfortable Italian mountain lodges. Each day offers options for hikers and for the more intrepid, via ferratas. On either end of the trip, we can add on the beautiful cities of Verona and/or Venice. Drop us a line for more details. Ciao!
- SAILING & HIKING: YOU CHOOSE… SICLIY, CROATIA or GREECE! SEPTEMBER 2022 & 2023
Currently our most popular trips! These fabulous journeys follow our recipe of booking a very glamorous catamaran that sleeps 8 and sailing around adventuring and hiking in the Adriatic and the Med. This is our most popular trip because they are fun for everyone, hikers, non-hikers, family, friends, couples, you name it. To see what these trips look like, check out our blogs and our Instagram ~ @mtnspiritslife or Trip Reports here on our website!
- ICELAND HIKING TRIP ~ SEPTEMBER 2023
We are going to explore all of the natural phenomena that Iceland has to offer on this last summer hiking and adventure trip. This is a private group but if you know Jeff Bailey (one of our most frequent fliers), then you should reach out to him to see if you can join his group! Otherwise, look for our photos on Instagram and come with us in 2024! XOXO
- TREKKING IN LANGTANG NATIONAL PARK, NEPAL ~ OCT/NOV 2023
We have decided to wait until Covid is in the rear view mirror to visit Nepal. We are planning on 2023 in Nepal for a 3 week adventure. We will start with a fairly chill (by Nepal standards) trek into the Langtang region followed by day hikes and peaks from a lovely camp set at around 14,000 feet elevation in the heart of the Langtang National Park. This region is where we got our idea for Mountain Spirits AND where the Mountain Spirits Fund got it’s start! Many families that we support live here. The views are incredible and trekking from a basecamp will open up many options for our groups. Hardcore hikers can hike every day with side trips up to 18,000 + feet. The less hardcore will be able to relax in camp with a book and a cup of tea and enjoy the amazing views. Drop us a line if you are interested in joining us in Nepal back where it all began!
