Active Adventure

Develop a fantastic wilderness adventure! With decades of experience, Excihiking offers excellent guide & tour building service to the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia.

Penetrate Appalachian wilderness as far as you dare! 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. Excihiking builds & supports tours to include the most scenery possible commensurate to your skills.

Most activities are not far from Roanoke. Hike the most popular trails, or find Appalachian isolation on remote ones. Whatever you picture the perfect outdoor excursion to be, we'll set it up for you! One day visiting Roanoke attractions is recommended if staying in the area for an extended tour. We offer FREE quotes for any inquiry; we'll work with you to optimize itinerary. Get a 10% discount if you book by phone more than 30 days in advance.

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)

Typical Day

Congrats to Don Defreeze and his recent book's publication Climb Beyond the Crest, available at most online stores (Amazon, Barnes, etc).

If you prefer not to drive to the event, take our courtesy shuttle.

Join Don (B.S. Meteorology) on the day's Appalachian adventure. His accumulated knowledge about the region's mountains spans decades; his insights will entertain and inform at every turn. Hikes end at 5pm, which 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. We know the best locations and can maintain primitive as well as developed campsites.

One day touring Roanoke is recommended, attend the many venues that Roanoke offers, being a tourist city itself. We extend our support after-hours by providing information about shopping, dining and such. Whatever your goal, Excihiking will 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 activities 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 of 5% cost; 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!

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 courtesy vehicle.
Excihiking is not responsible for any inadvertent accident not directly attributable to Excihiking. Also, we are a guide service, not a rescue squad. We provide aid to a level considered reasonable.

(See website for expanded rate schedule)

Tour itineraries become fixed on a first-come first-served basis (see availability chart for week tour specials). A deposit confirms a reservation and fixes the itinerary for the participant. Therefore, it's best to get started asap to secure your event.

Other Information

If you're on an extended stay in the area, we suggest one day be designated to tour Roanoke, with courtesy transportation provided within the Roanoke valley. You'll be surprised how interesting and wonderful this city is.

You may want to bundle your tour with upcoming events in such venues as the Roanoke Berglund Center, Salem Taliaferro complex, Elmwood Park etc., and we suggest you visit their websites and review their schedules.

Discounts Offered

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

Thank you,
Don Defreeze
