Testimonials

"This was my fifth visit to Yellowstone over my life time (69 years). I saw more, learned more, experienced more, and enjoyed more of Yellowstone during my one week with Wildland Trekking than all the other visits combined. Great guides, fantastic itinerary, excellent food, super equipment, skilled facilitation, coordination, and execution by Wildland Trekking. I highly recommend hiking Yellowstone with Wildland Trekking." - Paul P.



"My husband and I completed 4 days and 3 nights in the back country of Northwest Yellowstone Park (September 1-4, 2013) with our guide Eddie Bowers. This is our second trip with Wildland Trekking and they did not disappoint. The planning, equipment, food and our guide were all top notch. Eddie had not personally done this particular trip before but we would not have known that if he didn't mention it. Eddie has a wealth of knowledge and experience and we enjoyed being with him on our trip. We had some rough terrain on our summit day and somehow he always knew where to go and how to stay on track. On our last day when we had a surprise black bear bluff charge us he was calm and handled the situation just like we heard in the pre-t rip orientation. Little did we know this was Eddie's first encounter with a bear as well, you'd never know it. Eddie's cooking was great and we always enjoyed our food, chicken curry salad at 10,000 feet, chicken gumbo or fajitas, it was all good food. The beauty of Yellowstone will not be forgotten and the organization and people of Wildland Trekking made the experience very enjoyable. We will not hesitate to use them on another guided vacation. Celeste & Mark Streger" - Celest and Mark S.



"I completed the Bechler River Traverse 8/5/2013 - 8/9/2013 and enjoyed my hike so much with Merik I came back a month later to complete another hike,the Magnificent Mountain Country Trek 9/7/2013 - 9/10/2013 also with Merik. I think I enjoyed myself even more the 2nd time around because of the group of people I met on this hike; they were incredibly friendly and we hit it off right away, just made an incredible bond during the hike. The one thing that impresses me about Wildland, is you get to experience some of the most beautiful places in this country while having the opportunity to meet some really wonderful people who enjoy the outdoors and hiking as much as you do. Thank you Wildland staff, Kristen, Ann Marie and Jill for all your help and arrangements and Thank you again Merik for another GREAT hike!" - Tim R.
