Your Guide To River Tracing, Hiking and Outdoor Explorations In Hualien, Taiwan.
Hualien Outdoors is an outdoor company based in beautiful Hualien city. Started as an English Environment Outdoor School for children in 2008, Hualien Outdoors has evolved into a full-service out tripping company, specialising in trips and activities in the uniquely beautiful Hualien County and Taroko Gorge areas.
All our trips are based on the Leave No Trace philosophy. We also follow the wishes of the aboriginal tribes that live in the areas we visit in respect to sacred spaces. Our attitude towards the mountains, rivers and ocean of Hualien is one of long term sustainability. That is why we keep groups small and flexible. In taking people out to see the wilderness Hualien has to offer, we want to make sure we create the least amount of impact possible on the beautiful places we take our guests.
As such, we don't take people into the outdoors because we have to, we all have day jobs. We do it because we enjoy sharing Hualien with our guests. The feeling of sharing this place with someone is wonderful, and addicting. And of course, during our free time you can find us out river tracing, hiking, climbing, surfing and going to wild hot springs in all the same places we take our guests!
All our trips have an individualised destination and feel. No two trips are ever the same. Each trip is tailored to the skills, experience and goals of our guests. We lead trips for everyone, from family groups with babies and grandparents to world travelling adrenaline junkies, and every group in between. Hualien has something for everyone, and we would love to take you out and see it!
All our trips strive to give our guests the best possible experience in the mountains and rivers of Hualien. Our goal is to give our guests the safest, most exciting and satisfying trip possible. All our trip locations are chosen based on our years of experience exploring the area around where we live. And of course, we hate the tour buses as much as you do! Our trips are designed to get to the beautiful spots as far away from the tourist trail as we possibly can, while still staying safe and comfortable. It isn't that hard once you know where to go! And as always, our food is high quality, fresh and locally sourced(well, except for the brie cheese). Come join us, I can guarantee it will be a highlight of your vacation! -Matt
