A Little Sand Does the Soul Good…

Sometimes you need a little adventure in your life…

Whether it means escaping the daily work grind, or maybe you are amidst a major life event. People are drawn to the misty shores of the lost coast to find themselves and spend a little time getting acquainted. The year of 2018 did not disappoint. Tales of playful otters, boisterous elephant seals and whales have floated in and out of the office here at Lost Coast Adventure Tours. We fixed blisters, applied gallons of sunscreen and dodged poison oak a total of 100 miles this season. We drove thousands of hikers safely to their destination where we get to be a tiny part of their often life changing experiences. Meeting new people is one of our favorite parts of the job. Our gear is sandy and our favorite meal at the end of a long trail day is the kind you can eat. Whether you are local and visiting the trail for your one thousandth time or journeying across the States at Lost Coast Adventure Tours we welcome you with hot cups of strong coffee and a story for the trail.

We feel lucky that we get to work and play at the same time and decided to share the experience with all of you. Our decision to add guided trips to our roster came from a close connection with the land and the desire to share a wealth of experience and tradition that Shelter Cove has to offer. We have walked many miles and spent long hot days with new friends, building these experiences that make life worth living. Here on the coast we think that everyone should get an opportunity to feel the sand between their toes after a long day in hiking boots. Backpacking can momentarily take all your worries away, especially if you let someone else take care of all the careful planning.

Our staff is small and homegrown. We live and breath the salty air and shop from a store with three small isles. More often than not if you sit down to eat at one of the two local restaurants, you may be sitting nearby to one of the farmers who grew one of the items on your carefully prepared plate. If you go for a walk around town you might finish the main stretch in less than twenty minutes. We can’t offer wild nightlife or shopping malls but we can offer an experience unlike any other and memories that will last a lifetime…
