2. Exceptional Certified Rainier Guides
Our commitment is to hire and train the best Rainier hiking guides in the industry. To ensure this we seek out career-minded guides, hire them as employees, comply with all labor laws, conduct extensive staff trainings, and require current medical and professional certifications. In addition to technical competency and credentials, we also require excellent people skills. These extraordinary men and women have the ability to turn a great Rainier get-away into an unforgettable, inspiring - and sometimes truly life changing - adventure. We invite you to read more about them - including reviews for each guide - on our Meet Our Team page.
3. Fantastic Meals and Top of the Line Gear
To provide fantastic food to our guests we customize our menus based on the preferences of the group, and we do not use dehydrated backpacking meals - you can expect abundant, delicious food to fuel and motivate you on your Rainier hiking trip! We also regularly accommodate specialty diets.
Gear must be optimally dependable, durable and functional, so we purchase from only the best outdoor gear companies like Osprey, Black Diamond, and MSR.
4. Comprehensive Risk Management
Safety on our Mount Rainier tours is the number one priority. All Rainier guides are certified Wilderness First Responders or EMTs, and each carries a field-issued first aid kit, comprehensive list of medical protocols, and a state-of-the-art emergency communication device. We also have a 24-hour on-call line that our staff, guests, and family members of guests can call any time (literally) to speak with a company representative.
5. All-inclusive Tours
Some Mount Rainier tour companies don't provide sleeping bags, sleeping pads, backpacks and other items, or they charge "gear rental" fees for use of these items - on our trips those items are fully included in the trip price. What about meals, permit fees and transportation fees? All totally included.
"This is a great trip, Got to hike in Olympic National Park and Rainier Park. Beautiful wild flowers in both parks. Guy Dobyns is an encyclopedia of flora. He is also an excellent guide. Working continuously to ensure that we had a great and safe trip. This trip is somewhat off the beaten path that you find at other more well known National Parks. You run into somewhat crowded situations at visitors centers, but, as soon as you start hiking, the crowd disappears and your hiking with your group alone. " - Robert S.
"The Olympic/Rainier Basecamp experience is my fourth Basecamp experience with Wildland Trekking. Like the first three treks, this event was well planned and executed by a great guide, quality equipment, great food, and an experience in places of extraordinary beauty, challenge, and interest. Our guide was professional, knowledgeable, and great to hang with. If you have never been to the Pacific NW, this is an amazing place you need to visit and Wildland Trekking is the best way to do it." - Paul P.
"Guy is terrific. So was Ron on my winter R2R2R last fall. Keep up the good work!!" - Ellen C.
