Catalina Immersion


A Zen Backpacking Experience

3 Days + 2 Nights + 24 Miles = 

An Adventure of a Lifetime 

This experience was planned with the beginning backpacker* in mind. 

Expect to have your breath taken  by the island's incredible beauty and majestic views and feel empowered by the island's demanding terrain.

This is an escape from your day to day life and the opportunity to reconnect, renew and restore the relationship you have with yourself. In a bold and grandiose environment like Catalina where we are immersed in nature, our own true nature surfaces and we are invited to evaluate who we really are and how we relate back to the world. By the end of our trip, you will leave the island transformed.

Adventurers can expect:

  • to be guided over an awe inspiring segment of the Trans Catalina Trail

  • to learn how to pack appropriately 

  • a great bonding experience with other adventurers

  • to learn about the scenic and untamed environment the island has to offer

  • to become a more skilled backpacker

  • a powerful connection with themselves

Some supplies and backpacking gear may be available for rent however adventurers are asked to be prepared with their own backpack, tent, sleeping gear, camping stove, water, food, and first aid kit. A full list of recommended items will be provided upon registration.

*No backpacking experience is necessary however adventurers should be skilled on mountain and forest type trails and physically fit enough to navigate challenging moments of elevation gain while carrying a backpack (approx 40 lbs.).
