We believe in a good adventure. The kind of trip that challenges you and has more unknowns than most people can stomach. It’s a different kind of travel, and we think more people should experience it. Sign up for our next trip to taste it yourself.
Coming Soon: 3 New Trips
We’re growing Lost Travel in 2020 and we’ve got quite a few trips in the works. Three of them are being buttoned up right now. One involves alligators (think Everglades), one involves Orcas (think Seattle), and one involves a fancy new form of motorized transport (think Electric).
We’re going to announce them on a piece of newsprint just like our forefathers would have. Want in early? Snag a supporter pack. It's like a Kickstarter campaign... but it's on our own terms and we'll actually follow through on it.
Sponsored by our adventurous friends at:

What do I need to bring?
You must bring your own bike (It’s BYOB). You also need to bring your own camping equipment; we recommend you pack light. Don't bring more than you can carry on a bike. Click here if you want help with outfitting.
You will need to bring/buy your own food and water but our sponsors have done most of the heavy lifting for you. You’ll never be more than a few (dozen) miles from civilization so if you’re running low on cheese curds you can stock up pretty easily.
We also recommend you bring a bring a map and compass. Don't bring GPS unless you want everyone to laugh at you.
If you’re traveling from far away (Toronto, San Francisco, or other faraway lands) and need help coordinating a bike rental let us know and we can help, we’ve got a bike guy.
