At Wild Solitude, we believe that repetition, experience and competence build the foundation you need to move through the backcountry mindfully. We seek to attune your skills, to take you further than you have gone before, and to help you find your place in the forest, mountains, and steppe.
Learn how to navigate by sight, read maps, plan your own routes, identify native plants, make yourself “lost proof”, assess potential risks and hazards, care for your body on long days, observe and identify animal signs, forage for edible plants, collect drinking water, navigate off trail through various types of terrain, stay warm in adverse conditions, avoid hypothermia and frostbite, move comfortably through cougar territory, and most importantly, learn how to feel at ease in the forest alone.
You belong there.
With a range of in-person events covering topics like off-trail travel and foraging, bi-monthly hikes meant to introduce you to the most beautiful places you’ve never seen, non-athletic events, night hiking, and private guided offerings, we have something for everyone- from beginners to highly experienced athletes.
For those who like to find their own way, we have a variety of advice and consult options tailored to fit your needs. Ask a question and get up to three suggestions for just 15 dollars, acquire some detailed beta for a specific trip, or invest in your future with a quick consult call.
Make sure you follow along on social media to stay up to date on all the latest SALES, special offers, and more! Check out @wildsolitudeguiding on Instagram and stay tuned for all kinds of great tips, photos, and dispatches from the wildest places in Oregon.
