Recreation


AMC offers a variety of activities, for every season, every interest, and every skill level.

We encourage people to get off the grid and explore the natural world! Join us for activities ranging from hiking, climbing, camping, biking, paddling, fishing, and skiing to overnight hut-to-hut transects, yoga retreats, wilderness courses, and more. Whether you choose from one of our trip packages or customize your own activity, experienced AMC guides are ready to show you the way.

The proceeds from your travels with us go to support conservation efforts in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions.
