Tremendous first backpacking experience for this 48 year old mom! Keenan and Paul were excellent guides - their impressive knowledge, positivity and patience made it easy to learn. Air travel prevented me from bringing a lot of gear so I appreciated the option to reasonably rent what I was missing. Great camaraderie in a gorgeous setting. I came away with... More

Just completed my first 3-day backpacking trip in Olympic National Park with Paul & Keenan and couldn't be happier with Kaf! They are the real deal when it comes to guiding. Safety is obviously top priority with having tons of fun right on it's heels. They are informative, knowledgeable, and eager to share their tips and tricks to demystify the... More

If you are considering going on an adventure with this company, read no further. Lay your money down and start planning for the fun they will add to your life. You will wish you had done it sooner. They were fun, professional, entertaining, kind, serious about safety, seriously in love with their jobs and serious about keeping their guests on... More

Did a yoga hike 8/9. It was a GREAT day hike! Not an experienced hiker, so it was great to get basics from Paul, our hiking instructor - about drinking water outside, taking care of the trails etc. And the yoga outside in the forest w Kristen was so much fun! Really hit the spot. Made me wonder why we... More

Just got back from our second backpacking trip with KAF and it was just as amazing as our first adventure last year. The instructors at KAF are the real deal. They are sincere, experienced, patient, and enthusiastic about sharing their passion with everyone in the group. My teenage son and I joined together both times and had the best experience.... More

We had a wonderful time with Nate. Accessing the spot was easy, at an exit on I90 just east of North Bend with just a 10-15 mins walk from where we parked. As we were all mostly beginners, Nate spent time teaching us about climbing gear, knots, commands, belaying... It was quite a class in a short time and we... More

I’d been dreaming of picking up backpacking, and had my eye on the Intro to Backpacking Classroom and field classes for more than a year, but frankly was intimidated. Concerned I wouldn’t be deemed ripped or fit enough in my current shape, and I was nervous an intro “class” would feel more like a guided trip geared to sell more... More

Oh what a day we had at exit 38 with Nate and Keenan! I contacted Kaf before we came to Seattle and they were wonderful in their communication thanks to Rikki.

I took both of the intro to backpacking courses (classroom and excursion). The instructor Paul was fantastic! He made backpacking feel approachable and I learned A LOT in a really short period of time (packing, clean water, food, topography, compass, etc). The trip we took to the Alpine Lakes was amazing and very well planned. KAF also seems to have... More
