Catalina Backcountry Adventure Expeditions

Are you more about the journey than the planning?

Catalina Backcountry has an adventure expedition waiting for any age and ability that loves exploring the majestic outdoors. Trying to figure out hiking & camping the backcountry of Catalina Island can be overwhelming:

  • Reservations for the boat to the island
  • Transportation to the trail head
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Campground reservations
  • Gear rentals and hauling: water, ice chest, and hot water on demand showers waiting for you at every campsite after hiking all day
  • Firewood delivery
  • Meals: trail snacks, breakfast and hot coffee, 5-course gourmet fireside meals or camp host cooking
  • Hiking permits
  • Activities – kayaking, snorkeling, zip lining, surfing, massages, and more!

…and the little pearls of wisdom that only come from a local that’s lived on the island – that’s what we can do for you – we pull all of the logistics together so all you have to do is be ready to enjoy a Catalina Island hiking or camping vacation of a lifetime.
