Yosemite Backpacking Trips

California's Yosemite National Park contains some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world. With towering granite walls, deep blue alpine lakes, stunning vistas and cascading waterfalls, Yosemite will blow you away! A backcountry hiking trip in Yosemite will take you away from the crowded highways so you can experience these truly grand mountains in an intimate and adventurous way.

On our guided Yosemite backpacking trips you'll be able to focus on enjoying yourself while we take care of the details. Your guide will outfit you with gear, cook the meals, inform you about the landscapes you're hiking through, and do everything they can to make your trip an unforgettable one.

Our Yosemite hikes range from moderate 3-day hiking tours to strenuous 7-day backpacking adventures. Give us a call at 800-715-HIKE (4453) (HIKE) or email us to learn more!
