Whether you’re hiking, backpacking, whitewater paddling, or mountaineering – you’ll travel along alpine meadows, cold-mountain streams, cascading waterfalls, and remote mountain passes.
NCOAE’s Pacific Northwest courses are exceptional with their unique combination of adventure and skill development. You’ll master your outdoor technical skills, critical thinking and decision making as you explore rocky ridges and rushing rivers through the Pacific Northwest’s remote outdoor classroom.
