Slow Down, Adventure Deeply


Sink into a slower rhythm with the land and each other. Wake up in a redwood forest. Hike through grasslands. Linger near a bubbling creek. Kayak down the Russian River. Rest in a quiet meadow preserve. Forage for wild dinner ingredients with a chef and an expert wildlife ecologist. Enjoy meals together, nights around the campfire, and camping at remarkable spots along the way. Feed your soul —one experience at a time.

Redefining Outdoor Adventure

In other words, LandPaths has redefined outdoor adventure with TrekSonoma. Our multi-day walking and kayaking treks allow you to experience the land in a whole new way.

You’ll enjoy communal meals, evenings around the campfire, and camping at scenic sites along the way. Your gear will be shuttled, allowing you to spend the day with only a daypack, enjoying with ease a bounty of remarkable vistas and experiences. Whether you are a local or an out-of-town visitor, our treks are an exceptional opportunity to interact with the land’s natural beauty, farms, plant and animal life, and ecological diversity as a connected whole, entirely away from the automobile.

Join us for an upcoming trek!  Looking for something unique for a birthday, family gathering, or community-building experience? We can design a special trek for you and your friends, family, company, or organization.

" This was a very unique and wonderful trip for me. I hike quite often with groups, and in beautiful places, but this trip was different. The connection with people and nature was deeper and more real than what I usually experience. "
