  • REI doesn't just sell outdoor gear — it also offers excursions across the world via its travel company, REI Adventures .
  • REI Adventures has more than 250 guided trips for a variety of activity levels, durations, and activities.
  • I attended a trip to Pinnacles National Park and was impressed with the entire experience REI curated.

Insider Today

My alarm jostled me awake at 5 a.m. PT, around the same time I'd usually wake up on the East coast. But instead of getting dressed for work, I layered up in comfortable gear, made sure my daypack had enough water in it, and rolled out of my tent, ready as I would ever be for a sunrise hike in Pinnacles National Park. 

I owed this unique opportunity to REI Adventures , the travel company arm of outdoor co-op REI , which has been guiding adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts on these trips since 1987. This hiking and camping excursion through one of the country's newest national parks is just one of the many outdoor adventures it offers around the world. 

If the idea of an "outdoor adventure" sounds intimidating or intense, don't be discouraged. REI Adventures offers trips for a wide variety of activity levels, durations, and activities, so you can find one that suits your comfort level and interests. The more important point is to get you outdoors ( your body and mind will thank you for it ) with less hassle and work. 

See below for a glimpse into what my experience was like on an REI Adventures trip through Pinnacles National Park. At the end of this review, I've also included answers to a series of FAQs such as how long each REI Adventures trip is and how much it costs to attend.  

rei walking tours

After arriving at the park, we jumped right into the sunny afternoon with a five-mile hike.

rei walking tours

Our group of nine people total (seven participants and two guides) traversed mountainous terrain, stopping to admire distinctive rock formations and attempt to spot the elusive California condor. We learned a bit about the history of the park, its geography, and its notable features. 

With our first hike checked off and our bodies sufficiently warmed up, we drove back to the campground to set up camp. Everything for our trip fit in this van and small trailer.

rei walking tours

Packed into the trailer were tents, cooking equipment, food supplies for all three days, and camping chairs. 

The guides showed us how to set up our tents, which were surprisingly easy to assemble, even for a novice like me.

rei walking tours

I haven't camped in at least 10 years, so I was a little nervous about having to set up my own tent. But thanks to the clear direction of our guides and the simple design of the tents, I had my humble abode set up in no time.

In case you're wondering, we slept in these airy REI Co-op Kingdom 4 Tents ($399). Since I don't camp often, I appreciated that these were provided to us. I wouldn't use it enough if I bought one for myself, and I also have nowhere to store it in my own apartment. 

They also provided us with sleeping pads, small personal tables, and a woven mat to make the tent feel more comfortable. It was a nice and thoughtful touch.

rei walking tours

The guides are expert camp cooks and have all the equipment and food supplies necessary to make delicious meals ...

rei walking tours

... which meant everyone else in the group got to sit back and enjoy a drink by the campfire as we rested from our hike.

rei walking tours

I wouldn't mind helping make dinner, but I have to admit it also felt great not worrying about any of our meals throughout the trip. Our main task that evening was to be on the lookout for wily, hungry raccoons. 

And all the meals were amazing. I didn't expect to eat this well on an outdoors trip, where I'm usually getting by on dried meats, squished sandwiches, and mysterious stews.

rei walking tours

Our first dinner included salad, salmon, pork loin, and potatoes.

If you have food restrictions or allergies, don't worry — our guides were careful and attentive about concerns like keto or dairy-free diets in our group and always had alternatives available. 

Seriously, I don't even eat breakfasts this balanced and filling at home.

rei walking tours

Not having to prepare food, then filling ourselves with the delicious meals, meant we had plenty of energy to attack each day's activities. The guides also carried snacks and prepared picnic-worthy lunch spreads during our hikes. 

Of course, our guides were more than excellent cooks. Having personally scouted destinations and led countless trips before us, they were experts — professional, friendly, and energetic to boot.

rei walking tours

I felt confident in their capable hands as they led us through noteworthy parts of the park, and I learned a lot about the wildlife and geology of Pinnacles. The guides are also great resources for types of outdoor gear you should carry, cool parks and hikes around the world, and other tidbits of outdoors knowledge. 

They showed us different rocks ...

rei walking tours

... exposed us to woodsy areas that made Pinnacles feel like a completely different park ...

rei walking tours

... and took us into the dark and exciting caves that Pinnacles is so well known for.

rei walking tours

On the morning of the last day, we embarked on a short sunrise hike to Bear Gulch Reservoir, where we enjoyed breakfast and some quiet time.

rei walking tours

It's not often I can watch the sun rise and listen to the birds and other animals come alive in the morning, so I relished the respite from city life. 

Overall, I also enjoyed the company of my group.

rei walking tours

When you go on a trip with REI Adventures, chances are you'll be traveling with like-minded people. Everyone may have different backgrounds and interests in different outdoor activities, but you're ultimately bonded by a love of the outdoors. 

REI says that half of its trip participants are solo travelers, so trips are an excellent opportunity to meet new people. There are also friends, couples, and families who travel together. 

The bottom line: Explore the outdoors with REI Adventures.

rei walking tours

Thanks to these standout features from my experience, I wouldn't hesitate to go on another trip through REI Adventures.

  • The guides:  The organization, expertise, and friendliness of the guides are everything. They make the trips both fun and informative. 
  • The convenience:  Annoying hassles like large, expensive equipment and detailed itineraries are all taken care of, so you can enjoy your destination even more. 
  • The destinations:  Since the outdoor destinations are living, breathing entities, there's never any guarantee that you'll be able to see a specific animal or capture a specific view on your camera. However, there's no questioning that they're beautiful, interesting places to explore and appreciate. 

rei walking tours

Where are the REI Adventures trips offered? 

At the time of this writing, there are more than 100 trips you can choose from — all of which are domestic. REI previously offered trips around the world and on every continent, even Antarctica , but has since altered its offerings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Prior to the pandemic, REI Adventures had trips that would allow you to kayak and zip line in Costa Rica , hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu , make the classic base camp trek at Everest, and more.

Though those are on pause currently, you can still narrow your search by a number of domestic regions or destinations to find one that fits where you want to travel (e.g. national parks). 

How long are REI Adventures trips? 

There are trips that are three days long, 23 days long, and everything in between. That means you can take a quick weekend trip when you're craving proximity to nature more involved than looking at your desk plant or collect all your vacation days to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. The majority of REI Adventures trips are three to nine days long. 

Are REI Adventures trips strenuous? 

No. Each trip has a number rating from 1 (relaxed) to 5 (strenuous). While a relaxed trip will involve a few hours of activity on flat terrain and with little or no elevation gain, a strenuous trip is designed for very active travelers and includes 10+ hours of activity per day, steep ascents and descents, elevation changes of up to 4,000 feet per day, and altitudes topping 14,000 feet. 

About half of the available trips have a 3 rating (moderate), which is suitable for outdoor novices and casual recreationalists. While browsing trips, you can filter by activity level rating and gauge which ones are most appropriate for you. 

How much do REI Adventures trips cost and what's included? 

The trips range from $759 to more than $10,000 per person. They're pricey but there are a couple of factors to consider: REI members get significant discounts, and the price is inclusive of things like park fees, meals, camping tents, cooking equipment, some transportation, and professional guiding expertise. 

Beyond the cost of expensive outdoor equipment, you might want to consider the price tag you put on convenience and expertise. If you're willing and able to pay for a less stressful outdoor experience in which someone else handles all the research and costs of itinerary design and equipment, then you should seriously consider an REI Adventures trip. 

I've signed up for an REI Adventures trip. Now what? 

After you sign up and submit a deposit, you'll get access to a portal where you can review everything you need to prepare for the trip. This includes a checklist of the gear you need to bring, forms about your medical history and physical fitness, and the option to purchase travel insurance.

In the days leading up to your trip, you'll also receive a final itinerary that includes the details of each day, as well as important contact information. 

What else can I expect from my REI Adventures trip? 

As part of an REI-sponsored media trip, I went on a shortened version of the Pinnacles National Park trip — it was three days instead of four, but the rest of the experience remained the same.

Keep reading to learn about all the details, including the tents we stayed in, the food we ate, and the guides who led us through the journey.

Superstition Mountains Guided Tours

Just one hour east of the hustle and bustle of Phoenix, Ariz., is the Superstition Mountain Wilderness. If you’re looking for a wild-west-wilderness experience, look no further. The Superstition Wilderness has over 160,000 acres of rugged mountains, and steep desert terrain. While it is an exposed, dry desert, those who visit will be surprised by the variety of flora and fauna here –   from the boulder piles to small watering holes, and saguaro forests to pockets of ponderosa pine – there’s so much to explore.

The main activities to do in the Superstition Mountains is hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. There is no mechanized travel permitted in the wilderness area, such as mountain biking or off-roading, but the famous Apache Trail runs through the area and is great for a scenic drive, gravel-grinding, or a stop at Apache Lake for fishing and other water recreation. If you’re looking for trails less-traveled, you’ll find them in the Superstition Wilderness. There are multiple day hikes in the area, but a backpacking trip takes you deeper into this mountainous landscape along virtually untrodden routes.

The best season to visit Arizona’s Superstition Wilderness is winter, as the Sonoran Desert offers mild weather and welcome respite from the winter storms that descend on much of the US and Canada. Not only is this desert terrain wild, but the superstitious history of the area is also quite the draw. Exciting native and old gold miner legends of the region will have you yearning to hike every trail of the Superstition Mountains. A few highlights not to miss when visiting the Superstition Wilderness is panning for gold at Goldfield Ghost Town, a stop at the authentic stagecoach stop of Tortilla Flat, hopping aboard the Dolly Steamboat on Canyon Lake, visiting the Superstition Mountain Lost Dutchman Museum, and hiking the Siphon Draw Trail, the Peralta Canyon Trail, and the Dutchman’s Trail.

Walking vs hiking vs trekking.

Outline of a running shoe with a red strip on the side

Our walking trips will take you on defined tracks and over smooth surfaces – think the grasslands of northern Thailand, rice paddies in Mai Chau, and New Zealand's idyllic Queen Charlotte Track. There’s no need for fitness preparation or specialized equipment; just you, your comfortable walking shoes, and a healthy sense of adventure. And we promise there’s not a base camp in sight. 

Outline of a hiking shoe with red patch at the top

Make your way up magnificent mountains, through concentrated bushland, and across rugged, countryside trails on our range of leader-led hiking trips. Harder and longer than a walk but less physically demanding than a trek, hikes are the perfect in-between for those who still want to thoroughly explore the great outdoors without all the fuss of proper equipment. 

An outline of a person carrying a backpack

Treks are often in remote destinations where the trails are barely visible, and the terrain makes it harder to traverse without specialized equipment. These treks range from tackling Kilimanjaro to testing your limits at Everest Base Camp and generally feature high altitudes and overnight stops with basic accommodation. Yep, say goodbye to showers and hello to unforgettable memories.

A group of hikers ready to start the trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal

Make the heroic climb to Nepal’s Everest Base Camp

Some destinations are simply more life-changing than others and Everest Base Camp might just be the most profound of them all. Boasting the world’s highest peak and the number one spot on every bucket list, this larger-than-life mountain range will have you challenging yourself in every way. But for the unbelievable views you’ll come across and the Himalayan culture you’ll be treated to, the trek to its base is worth it every time.

Take in the epic vistas along the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago isn’t just an ancient pilgrimage route - it’s the spiritual journey of a lifetime. Whether you want to do a bit of soul searching, soak up centuries of history, swap stories with people from all over the world, or stare in awe at the picturesque panoramas along the way, this enriching trek will change you in the best way possible. And absolutely nothing beats the feeling of reaching Santiago de Compostela.

Step out of the city and into the wild in Alaska’s Denali National Park. Showing you just how talented Mother Nature really is, this national park will not only take your breath away but also refill your lungs with some of the freshest mountain air in the United States for the ultimate cleansing experience. Walk beneath snowcapped peaks, wander through rolling polar deserts, marvel at ancient glaciers, and watch as the northern lights illuminate the night sky.

From small walks to larger hikes, and from easy routes to challenging treks, the Dolomites offer a little something for everyone. Promising to be an outdoor adventurist's dream, this jaw-dropping Italian mountain range is picture-perfect in every way from its enchantingly rugged scenery to the distinctive colours that play over the rocky peaks as the sun rises and falls. Easy to revel in the natural beauty all around you, this trip is one you don’t want to miss.

Trek your way through the Annapurna Range in Nepal

Impressive? Check. Challenging? Check? Unforgettable? Check – the Annapurna Range in Nepal ticks all the boxes. Remarkably different from the neighbouring Everest region, this trek boasts the best of monolithic mountain scenery and Himalayan culture for views and experiences that will quickly fill up your camera roll. From forests full of flame-red rhododendrons to fiery sunsets against Machhapuchhare Mountain, your memories of Annapurna will last you a lifetime.

Hike the rugged terrain of South America’s Patagonia

If you want to reconnect with nature, do it by wandering the remote wilderness of Argentina and Chile on what is guaranteed to be an extraordinary adventure. Marvel at the glacial lakes at Laguna Torre, discover the wild beauty of Torres del Paine National Park, point out jagged and impressive mountain peaks, and spot brightly coloured flamingoes as they primp and preen before your eyes. There’s a reason why hiking in Patagonia is as good as it gets.

Discover Cradle Mountain’s beauty one step at a time

Tasmania’s not short on spectacular scenery but the Cradle Mountain region in the state’s northwest is natural beauty at its absolute best. Set out on one of Australia’s most famous treks – the Cradle Mountain Overland Track – and make your way through groves of eucalyptus trees, lush rainforests, across alpine moors, and along brilliantly coloured lakes that won’t hesitate to take your breath away.

Embrace the past with every step as you make the journey to historic ruins saturated in ancient stories and secrets.

What is the range of walking & trekking holidays available?

Our walking & trekking tours span the gamut of active adventures from relatively easy, leisurely walks to multi-day challenges in high mountains. We offer a range of tours in the Himalayas, Kilimanjaro and the Americas, as well as plenty of classic hikes in Europe, the UK, and Australia.  

What are the types of walking & hiking holidays?

We predominantly provide two styles of walking & trekking holidays: 

Centre-based – this style of holiday spends all (or majority) of time in the centre of the action. Think Chamonix in the French Alps, Dobbiaco in the Dolomites or a rustic hotel in Yosemite Valley. Enjoy the comfort of the same room every day (as well as only unpacking once), and a selection of the best restaurants and other attractions in the neighbourhood. All you have to do is sit back and relax as we pick the best combination of walks available either directly from the foot of your accommodation, or just a short transfer away (often a public bus or train). To put it bluntly – you'll be fairly comfortable while experiencing the best walks and hikes going 'round.

Point-to-point – this style of holiday makes you walk from one place to the other, pretty much every day. However, we do throw in a rest day every now and then, depending on the region and the amount of hiking we need to cover on a daily basis. On point-to-point tours, you'll start in A and finish in B. Think about the Inca Trail, the Mount Everest Base Camp trek, the Hadrian’s Wall hike or the Mont Blanc Circuit. In most cases, we'll transfer your main luggage across to the next destination, so all you need to carry is the essentials (water, sun protection, waterproofs, extra layers, snacks and a camera). 

How safe are walking & trekking holidays?

The safety of our clients (you), staff (us), and all the people around us (our local friends and other trekkers) is our highest priority. This means we don't cut corners. Ever. All our leaders are adequately qualified, experienced, and insured so you don't need to worry about a thing. We only hike on well-settled trails and we follow local rules. Always. If the local authorities tell us it’s not advisable to walk certain trails then we won’t. If the weather is not looking good, we'll change our plans. If the trail is too busy, we'll turn around and hike elsewhere. It's as simple as that. We're all about staying safe, enjoying the best trails possible, and being flexible to achieve the best hiking experience for you. 

What is included in walking & trekking trips?

We include accommodation as per the itinerary, as well as transportation to and from trailheads and to all other included activities (note: this transportation is often public as that's the way we like to travel). We also include ALL hiking permits, whether it is in the Himalayas or the US National Parks. On top of that, we provide our highly qualified and experienced leaders to guide you throughout the trip.

What level of comfort can I expect on a walking & trekking holiday?

Most of our walking & trekking holidays are in the Intrepid Original standard, staying in small, authentic, and atmospheric 2–3-star hotels, using public transport where possible, and including all breakfasts, as well as some dinners and lunches depending on the travel destination. However, some of the trips are in the Intrepid Basix style – in most cases, these are trips featuring more remote itineraries such as in the Himalayas, Kilimanjaro, or Morocco. We then stay in either local guesthouses (or so-called teahouses in the Himalayas), or we camp. We often use private transfers on these trips too, as public transport options may not be available. Camping can be quite comfortable with spacious tents, clean water available, and where possible, a toilet tent set up. But we also want to make the experience as authentic as possible so you can always opt to camp under the stars. 

How sustainable are walking & hiking trips?

Sustainability is at the centre of everything we do, and walking & trekking holidays are no different. In fact, spending most of the time on your feet, scaling local trailheads is probably as sustainable as it gets. We also try to use public transport as much as possible and contract only small, family-run hotels and guesthouses. We also align our itineraries with local standards and follow all rules set up by local authorities. The hikes we choose are mostly a combination of the iconic trails (aka ones you don't want to miss) and the lesser-known ones, ensuring there's a little bit of everything. 

What to pack for walking & hiking trip?

All itineraries feature a packing list on the 'Essential Trip Information' document. Please read it carefully as it may contain trip-specific items you must bring. On a higher level, you always need to pack a backpack/day bag to accompany you on your daily walks, comfortable walking shoes or boots (depending on the trip), good trekking clothing (combination of lightweight and quick drying shorts, pants, short and long sleeve shirts), extra warm layers (sometimes even a down jacket) and waterproof gear. We also highly recommend bringing walking poles as these are very useful on steep ascents and long descents.  

Read more about what to pack your walking & trekking trip

Will I be required to carry my own luggage?

The short answer is no. Your main luggage is transported for you on point-to-point itineraries (often by porters, therefore it should be packed in a soft/duffle bag) and your luggage stays in your accommodation for all centre-based itineraries. However, you'll need to bring a small bag/backpack (around 25-30 litre capacity) to carry around all of your essentials (water, snacks, extra layer, waterproofs) when you're on the move.

Do I need any special insurance?

You will need to have insurance that will cover hiking and trekking in certain destinations up to a certain elevation (in the Himalayas, Peru, and a few other destinations that feature altitude hikes). But you won't need any special insurance to cover technical activities. However, to be 100% certain your cover is adequate for the trip you're doing, we suggest you talk to an insurer and present the planned itinerary of your chosen trip. 

How big are the group sizes?

The maximum group size is 12 people on the majority of walking & trekking trips, however, some itineraries may go up to 16 people. But, on average, there are 7-10 people on each departure. 

Are walking & hiking holidays suitable for solo travellers?

Absolutely! In fact, most of our customers are travelling solo, and there is no extra fee for doing so. One thing to note is that if are travelling solo, you'll be room-sharing with another solo traveller of the same sex. If you would prefer to have your own room, please speak to your booking agent as we're often able to accommodate this at an extra fee. 

What ages are the group holidays suitable for?

The minimum age on our walking & trekking holidays is predominantly 15 (on some itineraries we can accept a lower age – sometimes even 12, so please enquire at the time of booking). But there is no maximum age limit. We’ll accept everyone who’s keen and physically ready for the challenge (no screening form needed – we trust your own judgement), regardless of age. After all, age is really only a state of mind, right? 

Will I get altitude sickness?

On some of our hikes you will encounter high altitudes. When climbing above 2,800 metres (9,200 feet), it is common for travellers to experience some adverse health effects due to the altitude, regardless of your age, gender and fitness. It even happened to Sir Edmund Hillary!

There’s no real way to tell how your body will react to the rigours of altitude trekking, so it is important that you monitor your condition and discuss any prevailing symptoms with your guide. If you have any pre-existing conditions that could be exacerbated by high altitudes, be sure to get them checked out by a doctor before you leave.

But above all, try not to worry, most of our travellers shake off the effects of altitude pretty quickly and enjoy a safe and rewarding trek.

How fit do I need to be to go on a walking & trekking trip?

We have walks ranging from relatively easy to rather challenging. But no matter what degree of difficulty or distance you choose to walk, we recommend that you have a reasonable level of fitness to ensure that you get the most out of your walk or hike. Try to commit to some type of physical training program around six weeks before you depart. Here are some suggestions: Long walks: go on some long walks of 3-6 hours duration before you leave, wearing the boots you’re taking and carrying a small backpack to get comfortable with carrying your gear for long stretches. Aerobic exercise: running, distance cycling and the various aerobic classes offered at gyms (like pump, spin, zumba and circuit classes) all help to give you fitness and stamina. Strength training: doing body weight training like pushups, squats, dips, lunges, etc. helps to build up your muscle strength, which is needed for the steady climb up a mountain if you’re embarking on this type of hike (bootcamp sessions are perfect for this type of training).

“Absolutely EVERYTHING about this trip was perfect: itinerary, food, lodgings, trip leaders, educational opportunities. A perfect example of why Wilderness Travel will always be our first choice when planning adventures.”
“We were taught so much beyond the usual viewpoint given to a tourist that I felt I had a much deeper understanding of the culture and history than I would have if traveling with a different company.”
“An incredible variety of activities was packed into the trip, yet we never felt rushed. It would be impossible to do what we did in the same period of time without the expertise of WT guides.”
“I have dreamed of taking this trip for years. Truly this journey exceeded my expectations on all fronts. The wildlife, terrain, people, staff and fellow trip mates made it an adventure to always treasure. I feel blessed and fortunate. Thank you Wilderness Travel. You have my complete confidence.”
“Because of our Trek Leader’s vast experience in the area, we used several trails that aren’t known to many trekkers and we were invited into Sherpa homes, which was wonderful. I had been dreaming of this trip for 30 years and now those dreams are fulfilled.”
“Couldn’t have asked for a more interesting trip and two outstanding guides, accommodations, and meals. This was our fourth trip with Wilderness Travel and one of the best (although we say that about every trip we have been on!)”
“I love Wilderness Travel! You select the best guides, a variety of special places to stay, the food is always plentiful and cultural, and the adventure is top drawer! Thank you for offering trips that expand one’s knowledge of other cultures while making it enjoyable and fun.”
“We are still on a high a month after the trip, having had wonderful guides, camp crew, co-travelers, and the right mix of comfort and authentic experience.”
“WOW! This was an extraordinary trip. It was meticulously planned, but allowed for many spontaneous interactions and delightful surprises. Another WT success story.”
“This was my first trip to India and I cannot imagine a better introduction. Because of the care with which the trip had been planned and organized, I was able to relax, enjoy, and try to fully absorb the experience without spending even a moment concerned about the quotidian details of the trip. What a luxury.”
“Everyone was so thorough and helpful. It was like being whisked around on a magic carpet. Doors opened, every wish fulfilled, amazing service!”
“It was an indescribable, life-affirming experience that I will always cherish. In particular, I wanted to commend your selection of Trip Leaders. Their skill, thoughtfulness, and dedication made the entire trip seem effortless even though the challenge was great.”

Travel + Leisure

Since the arrival of spring, my mind has been consumed with non-stop thoughts of my upcoming outdoor adventures that will make the most out of the longer, warmer days. But as I learned the hard way last year, the trademark of any great trip is being prepared with excellent travel gear. Trust me, the last thing that anyone wants is to let uncomfortable athleisure hinder their enjoyment or have a flimsy tent spoil their camping trip. When it comes to exceptional outdoor gear, REI is my ultimate destination for purchasing high-quality and dependable travel essentials that are built to last.

If you've been searching for the perfect opportunity to upgrade your gear, then you're in luck, because REI also happens to be hosting an incredible (and under-the-radar) spring sale to ring in the season.

So you’ve shopped for new camping accessories, clothes, and shoes, but what about something to carry those precious valuables in? You'll need a durable backpack, duffel, or suitcase to withstand the weight of your essentials, so that’s where REI’s deals on spacious and practical bags come in. Shoppers can score the stylish Cotopaxi Luzon Del Dia 18-liter Backpack , a roomy and sleek hiking bag for just $65 off and high-quality Eagle Creek Tarmac XE 2-Wheel 95-liter Wheeled Luggage while it's sporting an enticing $100 discount. That’s not all, as customers can also enjoy steep discounts on daypacks and hip packs for a fraction of their price. But you’ll have to act accordingly because there’s no way these bag deals will be in stock for much longer.

This Cozy Fleece For Cool Nights

Fjallraven vardag pile fleece jacket (women's).

This Breezy Workout Dress

Outdoor voices doing things dress.

A Cult-Favorite Camping Blanket

Rumpl original puffy recycled blanket.

The Rumpl blanket is made of the same material as a classic puffer jacket, so it’ll keep you nice and warm. It’s also conveniently machine washable. Versions of this blanket are often on sale, but this discount matches the best price you can typically score for this size.

A headlamp is great for everything from navigating a dark campsite to an evening walk around the block. The model is a dual-beam design that emits up to 375 lumens at up to 88 meters. It also offers a sturdy IPX7 rating against dust and water. Black Diamond has a red version of this headlamp available for a few bucks less, but $33 is the best price online for the black and white options.

This Versatile Camp Towel

Nomadix original towel.

If you’re a Douglas Adams fan, then you know a towel is the most important tool an intersteller hitchhiker can have. Even if you’re sticking planetside, a great towel will keep you dry and can double as a blanket (or even a yoga mat, in the case of this slip-resistant design). Pick it up for 30% off right now.

This Luxe Camp Chair

Nemo stargaze reclining camp chair.

This Nemo chair improves upon the classic camp chair with padded arms, an adjustable headrest, suspending rocking and an auto recline, so you can truly sit back and relax by the fire. While this may seem pricey for a camp chair, this is the best price you can find for the luxury Nemo online right now.

This Family-Ready Tent

The north face wawona 6 tent.

A larger version of our top pick for the best camping tent overall, the six-person Wawona is a double-walled, three-season design. It has lots of pockets for internal organization and a shaded vestibule for storing extra gear or lounging away from the sun’s rays. Right now you can get it for $350 instead of the full $500.

Best REI Deals On Footwear:

A pair of best-selling sneakers, hoka arahi 6 sneakers (men's).

Great for walking and running, these breathable sneakers offer extra support without superfluous weight. While 19% might not feel like a huge discount, you’re unlikely to see these sneakers on sale for much lower anytime soon.

These Insulated Hiking Boots

Merrell thermo chill mid waterproof boots (women's).

If you do a lot of winter hiking, check out these Merrell boots. They’re lightweight, insulated and have removable contoured insoles to keep you supported throughout your trek. Psst, they’re also on sale for 50% off at the moment.

A Lightweight Sneaker For Summer

Allbirds tree runner shoes (men's).

Lightweight and breathable, these casual Allbirds are great for every day wear—especially as the weather warms. You can also machine wash the insoles as needed to keep them fresh. This deal matches the best price we’ve seen for these sneakers, but it’s only available in two colorways at the moment.

A Solid Everyday Sneaker

Hoka bondi 8 road-running shoes (men's).

These Hoka sneakers are another great everyday shoe. Their lightweight, supportive foam can handle casual runs and long days on your feet. This deal is currently only available in one colorway, but it matches the best price we’ve seen for the Bondi 8.

These Cozy Slippers

Manitobah shearling cabin loafers (men's).

These cozy loafers are perfect for shuffling around the house, but their rubble outsole makes them durable enough to join you on that quick errand. Although you can technically find this slipper on sale for $2 less straight from Manitobah, it’s only available in sizes 6 and 7. REI has sizes 8, 9, 10 and 13 in stock for $62.

Some Strappy Chacos

Chaco z/2 classic sandals (men's).

If you’re looking for a simple, comfortable sandal, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Chacos. This style features adjustable straps, podiatrist-certified footbeds and a grippy outsole so you won’t slip around. This deal is by far the best price you can find a pair of Z/2s online right now.
