Why a Hiking Vacation to Death Valley National Park?

There are two primary ways to explore Death Valley - on wheels and on foot (we prefer on foot). A Death Valley hiking tour takes you to the best highlights of this amazing national park, where you can get up close and personal and discover the magic for yourself. Our Death Valley backpacking trips take you deep into the backcountry, where you soak up incredible solitude, drink from unlikely oases, and explore remote wilderness.


When to Hike Death Valley?

A Death Valley hiking trip is best in late fall, winter and early spring. Some Death Valley backpacking trips - like Telescope Peak - are good into late spring and early fall. Many Death Valley hiking trails are at their prime in winter months, December through February, when many of the United States' best hiking vacation destinations are buried in deep snow, making Death Valley a truly spectacular winter destination!
