When city life gets too hectic, it’s time to unplug and find an isolated getaway – and nowhere offers this kind of much-needed seclusion than the wilderness of the mountains. We’ve rounded up the very best off-the-grid mountain adventures from TRIPS by Culture Trip, with hikes to remote villages in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, off-the-beaten-track trails in Yosemite, California, and coasteering along the craggy coastline of North Wales. After taking on the challenges of journeying through the wild, you’ll come back feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever life throws your way.
1. Exploring the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia
The Caucasus Mountains rise up along the intersection of Asia and Europe, stretching from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea. One of the best places to explore these majestic peaks is in Georgia, a country that is quickly becoming a favourite destination for travellers looking for somewhere to get away from it all. Culture Trip’s nine-day journey is all about off-the-grid travel experiences, including hiking to the secluded Gergeti Church and beyond remote Juta village, visiting Unesco World Heritage sites at the city of Mtskheta, which dates back to the 3rd century BC, and exploring the Lagodekhi National Park.

2. Seeing iconic landmarks at Yosemite National Park
When it comes to isolated getaways, California has plenty to offer adventurous travellers. While it’s home to some of the world’s most iconic natural wonders – including Yosemite landmarks El Capitan and Half Dome, and the Napa Valley – there’s also lots to explore away from the crowds. Culture Trip’s California Dreamin’ group trip goes off-the-beaten-track to explore lesser-known spots within Yosemite, including Tuolumne Meadows, a high-altitude area that leads to panoramic views at Pothole Dome. After unplugging in the wilderness, you’ll be gently eased back into city life in San Francisco by way of the Napa Valley vineyards and a road trip down the dramatic Pacific Coast.

3. Trek through the Andes and the Amazon in Ecuador
Ecuador is home to some spectacularly diverse landscapes, with everything from the Andes Mountains, which stretch through seven South American countries, to the lush jungle of the Amazon – and if you’re looking for isolated getaways, it doesn’t get better than this. Explore the best of Ecuador on Culture Trip’s Essence of Ecuador group trip, which passes through the geothermally active peaks of the Avenue of Volcanoes, before heading into the Amazon, where you’ll go white-water rafting through the jungle. At the end of the trip, it’s time to sit back and relax in natural hot springs at a secluded retreat in Papallacta, a village in the Andes Mountains.

4. Scaling peaks in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales
With rugged landscapes, the towering Mt Snowdon and a coastline dotted with Medieval castles and battlements, North Wales is a paradise for travellers in search of off-the-grid mountain adventures.

You’ll hike to the top of dramatic peaks in Snowdonia National Park, descend into the depths of a disused slate mine, and try your hand at coasteering.

5. Marveling at Mount Fuji in Japan
Japan might be best known for its bustling mega-cities with neon-lit skyscrapers, but there is also plenty of opportunity for off-grid travel, exploring the country’s bamboo forests, unplugging in traditional ryokan-style hotels and discovering secluded islands. Culture Trip’s 12-day Japan Rising trip combines the best of both sides of the country.It begins in the large port city of Osaka and finishes up in Tokyo – taking in the floating Torii Gate of Miyajima Island, views of Mount Fuji from Lake Ashi, and hiking through bamboo forests and the gates of Fushimi Inari.
