Warrior Expeditions

Warrior Expeditions is a non-profit outdoor therapy program that helps combat veterans transition from their military service through long-distance outdoor expeditions.

Veterans participate full-time for 3 – 6 months while hiking, biking, or paddling between 800 – 3,700 miles across 35 states. In addition to the therapeutic effects of long-term immersion in nature, Warrior Expeditions programs combine intense physical activity, psycho-educational training, veteran camaraderie, and community interaction to help veterans process and come to terms with their wartime experiences. Seven years of psychiatric data shows meaningful improvements in PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns after a Warrior Hike, Warrior Bike, or Warrior Paddle expedition.
