Our Mission

Trekking with Tykes has a goal to inspire and educate families about the value of outdoor adventures. From tots to teens, we believe that getting outside is the best way to stay healthy, learn to respect the environment, and set up a recurring passion for hiking and nature that will pass from generation to generation.

We are sharing our stories, tips and advice from adventures across the continent in order to encourage you and those around you to get outside and breathe in that fresh air.We aim to share honest and factual gear reviews and comprehensive hiking guides to help you enjoy a safe and wonderful experience whether it’s your first hike, or your seventh summit.Our team is made up of some of the most experienced outdoor parents and guardians with decades of experience in the outdoor industry.

But at the heart of it all, are passionate families, parents, and outdoor lovers who just want to share their love of nature with as many people as possible. And if you share that passion, you’re in the right place! Reach out and share your story with us. We would love to see your experiences on Trekking with Tykes.
