About this trip

Peaksandposes is heading out on a unique day trip of whitewater rafting in the Southern Adirondacks of New York!! Woohoo!! You'll be in the good hands of Beaver Brook Outfitters for an amazing adventure. Even with all the rapids and paddling, you will be surprised how quiet and serene this trip will be. Beaver Brook provides lunch and the proper gear to keep you safe and warm. All you need to bring is your adventurous spirit. Also Included in the weekend are 2 short hikes. 


Friday: After you arrive at the Llama House ADK and unpack, we'll take advantage of the longer hours of daylight and head out for a short sunset hike right from the hostel. Afterward, there's chilling out by the fire or getting cozy in your bedroom. 


Saturday:: After a homemade breakfast, we will take a short drive to the outfitter's spot, get our wet suits, helmets, etc, and hop on their bus to get down to the river. Our trip will include approximately 6-8 boats with 8 people on each boat. Our day will truly be a unique super fun and exciting experience through the Hudson River Gorge with places to swim, jump off rocks, and have lunch. The guides are fun and cool (Dave, the hostel owner, is one of them). 

After rafting, we'll meet back at the hostel for showers, a home-cooked dinner, and fun around the campfire. 


Sunday:: We'll gather for a home-cooked breakfast and drive to Crane Mountain for a short loop hike (3.2 miles). Natural stone bridges, cliff ladders, and a spring-fed mountain ridge pond with spectacular views. We'll either drive back to the hostel or say our goodbyes at the trailhead.

I am a four season peak bagger in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. I am exploring the Adirondacks of New York as well as Colorado 14'ers. My longest backpacking trip was 18 days on the John Muir Trail with a grand finale hiking Mt. Whitney! I am a Certified Health Coach and yoga instructor leading people to uplevel their health and reinvent themself. I am the most content outside hiking with my friends. I enjoy staying active through yoga, biking, x-country skiing and cooking seasonal plant based food.

I had a wonderful trip to Shenandoah! I loved our cozy cabins, our meals were delicious and plentiful. (Thank you Majid) I enjoyed our yoga classes, the hiking, and the activities that Nancy led us in to help us get to know each other and ourselves better. I enjoyed making new friends and had such an awesome roommate. So grateful to Nancy for leading this trip. Thank you!

Another amazing retreat with Peaks and Poses. So well planned and orchestrated. Challenging hikes, Majid’s crazy delicious plant based meals, morning yoga and 5 Tibetans, tons of photos and more new friends. So grateful! Nancy Wind - I’ll go anywhere with you! White water rafting up north and hiking in Colorado is next. I’ll be there!

This trip to Glacier National Park was on my bucket list for years, and not only did it not disappoint, it exceeded my expectations beyond anything I could have imagined. To be honest, you'd have to be quite the crotchety soul to not find joy in the jaw-dropping beauty of GNP, but Nancy and Majid made the trip so much more. Sure there were the incredible meals, the energizing yoga sessions, and the soothing meditations, but there was also a focus on nurturing connection. I came to this retreat not knowing anyone else attending, yet I left feeling like I had grown another family. I highly recommend any Peaks and Poses retreats!

Donna, thank you for your thoughtful and heartfelt review. I'm so happy that we reconnected and are part of a loving and fun family! The mountains are magical and when we immerse ourselves in them, their is so much growth. Loved having you on our trip and enjoyed our hikes together and of course your photos. Namaste <3

OMG!!! Every day was awe inspiring. The park and its beauty holds pockets of wonder waiting to be explored. Each day held adventures that were different from each other and yet equally inspiring! Combine the hikes in the park with spiritual appreciation of all earths wonders and a touch of mind body wellness, one comes away feeling cleansed. Nancy’s expertise in connecting to the earth through breath, movement and community leaves you feeling inspired to continue long after the trip is over. Nancy thank you for all you do!

Thank you Linda, So glad that we reconnected and you could join us on this most amazing adventure. I love how you described the park as "pockets of wonder." So true. Thanks for your enthusiasm and stories to share. Look forward to traveling again with you!

This was a wonderful experience and the most carefully planned retreat I have been on. Nancy scheduled thrilling hikes and beautiful yoga and meditation sessions. We had free time as well. Our chef created delicious meals which we all enjoyed. Our accommodations were comfortable with space for gatherings indoors and out. I can’t wait for the next retreat with Nancy.

Ria, so grateful that we met and had this shared experience in the magical mountains of Glacier National Park. I can't wait to travel and explore with you again <3 Thanks for coming with your enthusiasm, willingness to try and learn new things (like playing Pitch) and your overall sweetness. See you soon!
