In December of 2013 we were contacted by Sunset Magazine for a piece they were planning for their March issue on America's national parks. They wanted to interview one of our Colorado guides for professional input on Rocky Mountain National Park. We helped them and were quoted in the article. They didn't produce an online version of the article, but we have a framed copy at our main office in Flagstaff.

In 2011 our Mule-assisted Classic Grand Canyon hiking tour was featured on the show "The Official Best of Arizona" as the Best Backcountry Adventure in Arizona!

In February of 2010 Backpacker Magazine contacted us asking for insider information on the best wildlife hikes in Yellowstone. They were interested particularly in specific wildlife - wolves, bear, moose, big horn sheep - and which hikes would provide the highest probability of seeing them. Our Rocky Mountain Field Coordinator, Steven Cundy, was featured in the article as the resident expert. They didn't create an online version, so the only way to see the article is to visit one of our offices in either Missoula or Flagstaff, where we have framed copies up for display.

London's Sunday Times features a traveler-oriented publication called Travel.

In June of 2008 she joined our New Hance Loop Hike and published her article in Travel Magazine in the July edition. She raved about the experience and about Wildland Trekking, and we were of course thrilled to be featured!

He celebrated his recovery with us in October of that year by hiking rim to rim.

In May 2007 Turkey Country published an article about Nancy Stevens, a Wildland Trekking guest who joined us on a Rim to Rim hike. It doesn't seem like too big of a deal considering hundreds of guests join us for that tour every year - except for the unique fact that Nancy is blind.
