Life on the Bus: What do we Bring?

The most important rule in adventure travel and especially on Adventure Bus is to bring only what you are absolutely certain you will need. Packing too much stuff can create more frustration and lessen the enjoyment. We recommend guests bring one duffel bag or soft-sided suitcase, one sleeping bag, and a daypack for carrying your water and lunch while out hiking.
We’ve put together a basic list of essential clothing and gear that is both practical and easily obtainable. We don’t want you to run out and buy lots of new gear just for this tour, but having certain gear will make your experience more comfortable and safer.
The packing list below is the one we send out with our confirmation and is merely a suggestion on what you should bring. If you do not have all of the items on the list, please don’t think you have to run out and spend a lot of cash—save the money for your vacation! Besides, you may have an opportunity to pick up anything you might have overlooked during one of several shopping stops.


Pack light and think layers!

1-2 pairs of pants or jeans (zip-off pants are super convenient)

3-4 pairs of shorts

3-4 t-shirts or tank tops

Sweatshirt or long-sleeve fleece shirt

Light-weight waterproof jacket or wind breaker

Bathing suit

Knit cap (for chilly campfire nights)

Hiking boots or sturdy sneakers

Sturdy water sandals (Teva®-like) or water shoes (flip-flops aren’t sturdy enough)

Undergarments, socks, undies, etc.

*Laundry facilities will be available throughout the week



Please pack your gear in a soft-sided suitcase or duffel bag!

Daypack or backpack and water bottle (Camelbaks® and other hydration backpacks are one of the best inventions ever or so we like to think. Also, most backpacks can

hold a hydration reservoir aka “bladder”)





Camera (guests tend to average 20-50 photographs per day)

Small flashlight or headlamp (hands-free headlamps are super handy)

Ear plugs (to block out the occasional snorer that falls asleep before you)

Warm sleeping bag w/ 15°-30° rating (we rent super warm sleeping bags for only $30)
