Adventure travel leader REI is launching its first Under 35 trip collection. Each immersive experience is packed with hiking, biking, paddling and other physical activity with plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with local people, places and cultures. Designed by and specifically for those between the ages of 18 and 35, the collection is a fresh take on active travel to explore Latin and North America, Europe and Asia. The trips complement the co-op’s broader efforts to better serve an age group that is increasingly prioritizing experiences over things.
