Accommodations will be a boutique hotel while in the San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.
Moderate. This trip is a good mix of activity and relaxation and includes moderate physical activities. Participants should expect to be active 3-4 hours on most days. An active lifestyle is helpful though not required to enjoy the trip.
If you enjoy hiking, snowshoeing is the winter sport for you. It's a great form of exercise and can be enjoyed at any fitness level. Snowshoeing is not difficult if you know where to begin.
The hikes are of medium difficulty, and you are more than welcome to go at your own pace.
We suggest a large backpack, as we’ll be on quite an adventure. If you only have a suitcase, that will work as well. Please be aware that travelers are responsible for carrying their own luggage.
There are a few “musts” that we recommend bringing with you:
Rule #1: NO COTTON!
Layers, layers, layers
Waterproof hiking boots (above the ankle) & wool socks
Waterproof winter jacket
Do your best to pack light.

U30X is such an amazing travel community. Once your trip is over, the experience is not. They keep in touch with their alumni & provide platforms for travel questions, personal development, & community connections in your own backyard! If you're a young person looking to travel I highly recommend U30X!
There are not enough ways for me to describe how amazing this company is. After my first trip I always told people, it wasn't about the location, but the experience that u30x gave me. I have some of the best experiences of my life with u30x, and now a passion for travel. Also, their alumni community and groups are awesome too!
Traveling with U30X has been life changing for me. I've made lifelong friends with both travelers and staff. I can't come up with enough good things to say about the company, the people, and the experiences I've had!
Just returned from my second trip with Under30Experiences. My first trip was to the Costa Rica rainforest. My most recent trip was to Iceland. Both trips were such an amazing experience. I loved learning about Iceland and its origins. I enjoy the small groups and I made some great new friends! Recommend them for anyone wanting to travel alone or with a couple of friends.
I was so scared to travel abroad alone and then I came across their website and they made international travel so easy! And the people I’ve met on the trips are some amazing individuals! I’ve done 6 of their trips and plan on continuing to do even more!!
My Hike the Inca Trail trip was beyond amazing, and I couldn't have asked for anything more from a trip. Our leaders made us all feel instantly comfortable, and the group was fantastic. The trip was well planned and the hike was unforgettable. Memories to last a lifetime.
