See (and Hike) the World with the Angeles Chapter

Our Travel Adventures offer an unparalleled opportunity to visit special places throughout the world, with trips oriented toward outdoor adventure and environmental awareness and led by our most experienced volunteer leaders. The proceeds from these trips provide vital support for the work of the Angeles Chapter.

Our schedule includes trips to the mountains, canyonlands and jungles of Asia, Europe, and North America, but no matter where we are-we never forget the Sierra Club's mission: to explore, enjoy, and protect the planet. Why not join us on an adventure of a lifetime and find out for yourself?

Fantastic hiking adventure combining two of the best of England's great walks. This adventure provides the opportunity to experience the variety and beauty of the English countryside, from the spectacular Lake District, through the emerald green Yorkshire Dales onto the desolate North York moors to the waves of the North Sea. Hadrian's Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving Europe's largest remaining Roman fortification, marking the northernmost limit of the Roman Empire.

We finished Section one of England's South West Coast Path National Trail in June of 2017; please join us for another 100+ miles of this stunner and discover its beauty and hidden treasures on this 15-day adventure. We travel from north Devon into Cornwall, passing through the village of "Portwenn" (film location of the Doc Martin TV series). End at St Ives, a French Riviera lookalike which has attracted some of the world's greatest artists for decades, starting with J M Turner and Henry Moore. Changing accommodations just once on the trip allows us to get settled and established.

Pinnacles National Park Car Camp with shorter and longer hikes in California's newest National Park located east of Big Sur over the coastal range. The highlight of this park is the fascinating geological formations and the famous talus caves. The lower elevations are lush riparian areas with abundant water and moss covered rocks, scenery we are not used to in SO CA. The park is part of the Condor Recovery Program so there is a probability of seeing adult and/or juvenile condors.
