History and Nature hikes guided by Adam at some of his favourite locations with ancient trees, breathtaking vistas, and fascinating history. All participants on the hikes receive a signed copy of one of Adam’s books. The hikes are geared toward talking about plants, trees, survival content, and for the History Hikes, Canadian history. The hikes offer a chance to meet Adam and pick his brain with any questions you have in a small group setting. Just email admin@adamshoalts.com 

SIGNED COPY INCLUDED WITH EACH HIKE!

There are 2 sessions to choose from for each hike (morning or afternoon). If history is your thing, and you enjoyed Adam’s best-seller 10 Maps, the Queenston hikes are history focused, but with stuff about plants and trees too. If you’re less into history, the Algonquin and Temagami hikes are geared toward nature and survival content, with just a sprinkling of history so fascinating that even people who find archaeology boring will dig it. Details, including how to sign up, are below:

  • We will follow all public health guidelines on safe social distancing and other precautions regarding covid-19. 
  • This includes maintaining a safe distance of at least 2 metres between each other (which fortunately isn’t too difficult outside)
  • Group size is kept limited (which is more fun anyways on nature hikes)
  • Since we are outside, masks aren’t mandatory but participants are welcome to wear one if they prefer.
