Trip Consulting

“We haven’t met anyone who’s logged more miles than Cam Honan.”

  ~ Backpacker Magazine (March, 2014)

Planning to hike the Appalachian, Pacific Crest or Continental Divide Trails? Looking for first hand information on the Himalayas, Andes, Alps or a multitude of other trekking destinations around the globe?

If so, you have come to the right place. Since the early 1990’s, I’ve had the good fortune of hiking more than 57,000 miles (91,733 km) in some 56 countries (see 100 Classic Hikes for some of my favourites). Exploring the world on foot is my passion, and I’d love to help you realize your own hiking dreams and goals, with experience-backed advice tailored to your individual needs.
