Marianne Hoffman

Hiking in your senior years. You’re never too old!

About this speaker

Marianne Hoffman, originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, has been an avid senior hiker ever since her pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago spurred her love for walking in nature. She decided to “walk the Camino” in order to commemorate her 60th birthday. Living in the foothills of the Wasatch mountain range, Marianne could easily explore the many hiking trails in local canyons, as well as in her much loved Utah desert.

In 2017, Marianne migrated from Utah to Cuenca, Ecuador. She was fortunate to find like minded senior hikers and an amazing local hiking guide.

Marianne describes herself as a “late bloomer”. She is now passionate about encouraging seniors to hike and seek adventure and truly believes “you are never too old”!

Marianne has experienced adventures and hikes she never could have imagined as a senior woman. Traveling all over Ecuador by bus, plane and foot has been rewarding, exciting and validating.

Living in the High Andes at an elevation of 9100 ft ( 2800 meters) and regularly hiking at 14,000 ft (4200 meters) has proven to her what seniors are capable of.

In the past year Marianne has had the privilege of hiking in Bolivia in “The Valley of Souls” and has trekked through parts of Colombia.

“If I can do it, you can do it!, I’d love to share my experiences and travel and hiking tips and encourage you to “hike a good life” .
