When adventurous men explore the hinterlands, they turn to trusted guides: Sacagawea, the pathfinder. Beatrice Portinari, the muse. Minard, the Zipcar.

But Minard can only take you so far. For true adventure, hook up with the urban sherpas at Brooklyn Outfitters.

Founded and guided by gung-ho outdoorsmen — think treks across Patagonia, stints working on “Survivor” — BKO organizes family-friendly expeditions to some of the Northeast’s most scenic and challenging terrain. Upcoming summer excursions include:

BKB Outdoor Climbing Day – Sat, June 30th

Hike and rock-climb The Gunks, with instruction provided by local climbing gym Brooklyn Boulders. Climbing gear provided. Beginners and advanced climbers welcome.

Summit Mt. Washington – Sat/Sun, July 21st & 22nd

Ascend 6,288 feet to the highest peak in the Northeastern United States. Includes an overnight stay at Joe Dodge Lodge.

16 Mile Canoe on the Delaware – Sat, Aug 25th

Explore 16 miles of wilderness on a beginner-friendly guided canoe trip past bald eagles, box turtles and maybe even the occasional black bear.

Transpo’s included for each trip, and BKO runs an online store for your provisioning needs.

BKO also offers a “create your own adventure” option — ideal for corporate groups, so you can lead your employees out of the seventh circle of boring weekend hell.
