Are you always at the back of the group on a hike? Do you reach the rest stop and only get a minute or so before everyone else sets off again?
Well then, our new slow hiking community will be right up your street. Named the Pole Pole (Poe-lay) Club, meaning Slow Slow in Swahili, our newest Embark community will turn the slow hiker connotation on its head- we’re going to Embrace the Slow.
Our hikes will be just as dynamic and engaging as any of our Embark’s adventures but there will be an emphasis on a measured pace, deliberated breaks, and more assistance with packing and personal gear management. We’re planning adventures to Canada, the Colorado Rockies, and Oaxaca, Mexico with a culminating epic trek to Everest Base Camp.
To learn more and be the first to hear about new trip dates, sign up for our Slow Hikers mailing list. We really recommend signing up for the mailing list as we know interest is going to be high and places are limited. In the meantime, get inspired, excited, and informed by listening to our podcast about slow hiking.
