It is always nice to spend time in the wilderness. You can do it alone, with a friend or with a group. But what difference does it make if you go on a nature tour with a guide?
1. Best hiking trails
A tour guide is familiar with the area and their job is to prepare an interesting trail that would allow the hikers to experience new things and leave with good memories. Wouldn’t it be nice to just relax and not worry about the time or where to go next? Let the tour guide worry about that! You can just let go, enjoy moving in the wild and let your mind explore.
A tour guide has learned to know the birds, animals and insects. They can tell stories about nature. They know the local folk tales. A tour guide might have a fun game or a quiz to revise the new information.
Whether it’s because of being in a hurry or inexperience, we often miss the signs in the wild. But a tour guide has a trained eye! They can also explain the connections in the nature. This helps to strengthen your awareness and understanding of the wilderness. Expand your mind!
By now it is clear that a tour guide is a source of inspiration for the hikers as is the group itself. Hiking in a group allows you to meet new people who you might have never met otherwise. Hikers have different skills, knowledge and perspectives. New experiences enrich our world-view.
5. You will be taken care of
A tour guide will keep an eye on you throughout the hike. They have a refreshing drink and tasty snacks in store for you. They will do their best for every participant to feel comfortable. In case of an emergency, they know what to do and how to administer first aid.
