Who We Are and What We Do

The Arizona Backpacking Company was created out of love of exploring; to strap on the bare essentials and walk through wild environments.  We love to put the sole of our foot directly onto the surface of the earth, and in turn, let the earth touch our soul.  There are few experiences on this planet that come close to feeling as alive as you do when traversing the landscape, actually being IN nature, not just watching it.

Over the years we’ve taken friends, family and complete strangers into the remote places we hold closest to our hearts.  Places like the Grand Canyon, the Superstition Mountains, and even over an 800-mile ribbon-path called the Arizona Trail.  We’ve been part of the learning curve of so many people that now we realize that the greatest thing on this world is to be able to inspire others to take the first step in hopefully thousands to come.

We created AZBP to help people, no matter where in the learning process they are.  Whether it’s a beginner that is just getting into hiking or someone that’s about to attempt a solo thru-hike of the AZT we’re here for you.  Let our combined decades of experience and literally thousands of miles hiked be a source of motivation and support.  We’ve created a series of courses and seminars that will help you get into this wonderful activity.  If there’s something you need and it’s not on our site – then reach out.  Maybe we’ve just been waiting on you to give us the next great idea.
