Leave civilisation behind and walk deep into the vast wilderness of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. This is a back to basics holiday  - with a backpack on we explore one of the most impressive sections of the world-famous Appalachian Trail where every step brings us closer to the most awe-inspiring views. Our nights are spent perched on a mountain in rustic huts, and we wake each morning to an exhilarating view, beckoning us to travel further along this magnificent long-distance trail. 

We begin in Boston, where we relax and enjoy city life before the real hike begins. Wasting no time, we travel deep into the White Mountains to start our backcountry walking adventure. After meeting our guide, who will brief us about the adventure ahead, we stretch our legs with a 4.6 mile hike. The following day sees us walk from the Gale River trailhead to Garfield Ridge. Our hut tonight is the most remote of those experienced on this trip and boasts stunning views directly from the front door. A steep ascent of 350m brings us to South Twin, and then we follow the trail over Mount Guyot and Mount Zealand. We pass some mountain lakes on this section of the trail and can take a cooling dip, should the weather allow. 

We set our horizons on the Crawford Path come day 5, one of the oldest maintained trails in the US, allowing us to summit Mount Webster and Mount Jackson. From here onwards the stunning alpine scenery will ramp up a notch. We will walk to the aptly named “Lakes of the Cloud Hut”. This is the highest hut on the tour (1524m), and we are treated to some incredible views of the Presidential Range. The Webster Cliff Trail leads directly from our hut to the summit of Mount Clinton. This walk traverses yet more American icons; Mount Eisenhower, Mount Franklin and Mount Monroe. Before the trip is up, we will walk along the backbone of the Presidential Range, with an opportunity to summit a selection of peaks. Star Lake rewards us with reflecting views of Mount Madison, a perfect spot for reflecting on our own epic journey. Our final day gives us the opportunity to summit Mount Madison, the most northerly peak in the Presidential Range. 

And finally we travel back to Boston to walk the historic Freedom Trail around the city before heading home.
