Active Adventure


Seek fun & solace in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Various distances & hiking intensities are supported by guide & author Don Defreeze. Day-hikes range from 1/4mi to 8mi; hike various terrains from mountains to streams, or even find fossils! Include camping or other outdoor activities like kayaking or your own special interest- just ask. We build & support your exciting adventure to include the most scenery possible commensurate to your skills. Most hikes are not far from Roanoke. Our popular hikes include Dragons Tooth, McAfee Knob, Tinker Cliffs, Apple Orchard Falls plus many more! One day visiting Roanoke attractions is recommended.(inc.in a basic week tour).

Beyond basic tours, camping can be included and expanded. Create an adventure that best fits your abilities, enthusiasm, schedule and interests. (see availability chart, yellow means spaces may still be available)

Don't wait! Inquire us & get started on an exciting Appalachian adventure now!

Typical Day


If you prefer not to drive to the event, we can pick you up with our courtesy shuttle. Join author/guide Don Defreeze on the day's fantastic trek/camping or adventure. Hikes end at 5pm, although may be extended if all agree. Rest in comfort at night, Excihiking can book your Roanoke hotel room for you, or develop a camp-out. One day touring Roanoke is recommended, attend the many venues that Roanoke offers, being a tourist city itself. Whatever your goal, we'll design a perfect adventure for you.

Age range, type of group


All can be accommodated if they finalize the booking process. Ask us about the difficulties of various hikes and we'll match your abilities. Children under 18 must be accompanied by parent(s) or guardian.

Sleeping and meals


From cheap to luxurious, rooms can be booked by Excihiking for a nominal fee; we can place you in the room you want. Meals are not included on daily hiking excursions unless you specify them. We can also arrange setting up excursions on a day-to-day basis as an option to stay on budget. If camping is included, basic food stuffs are provided along with a tent, but the lion share of meals during camping falls upon the customer. Whatever lodging arrangements you decide to make, you can almost always join us, just let us know!

Restrictions


All local laws need to be followed. Firearms are prohibited. Excihiking reserves the right to disband any contractual agreement if any Excihiking representative feels that a participant is a danger to anyone during the tour. Excihiking is not responsible if anyone misses the tour vehicle. Excihiking is not responsible for any inadvertant accident not directly attributable to Excihiking. Also, we are a guide service, not a rescue squad. We provide aid to a level considered reasonable.

Basic week tour itineraries become fixed on a first-come first-served basis (see availability chart for week tour specials). Once a deposit is accepted, others may join the basic tour, but they must agree to the then fixed itinerary. Therefore, its best to confirm your reservation request as soon as possible to secure specific choices.

Other Information


A day to tour Roanoke is offered. In a week tour, one day may be designated to tour Roanoke, with courtesy transportation provided throughout the Roanoke valley with the opportunity to visit multiple sites that day. A chance to view upcoming events, such as at the Roanoke Berglund Center, Salem Taliaferro complex, etc., can be linked at Excihiking's website.

Discounts Offered


There're many sponsored week tours and discount guided hikes throughout the year (see availability calendar). All benefits are afforded to any basic week tour. Anyone joining a day hike may have courtesy transportation provided but not guaranteed. The number of participants is limited so reserve early!

Thank you,
