Our guided backpacking tours take you into the heart of world-renowned wilderness destinations like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite. Enjoy solitude and adventure as you embark on a self-sufficient journey deep into America's most stunning wild areas. You'll be carrying everything you need for the trip in a top-of-the-line, fitted backpack we provide. Pack weights vary between 25 and 45 pounds, depending on the area, the duration of the trip, the time of year, and your height and weight.
We provide everything except clothing, footwear, rain gear, personal items, and a couple small gear items. All the gear we provide (backpacks, tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, trekking poles, cooking gear) is top-of-the-line. Also, you can request to share a tent with others in your party or have one to yourself. All meals are included from breakfast the first day through lunch the last day, and your guide will prepare all meals.
Note: if you'd like to do a standard backpacking trip but prefer not to carry the gear, we offer porter services for $235 per porter per day. The porters can carry up to 30 lbs of guest gear and do not hike with the groups.
