A Wildland Trekking Camping Tour is an incredible way to have an adventurous outdoor experience of world renowned national parks and wilderness destinations while hiking with only a light daypack and sleeping soundly in comfortable, vehicle-accessible camps. Led by expert hiking guides, we set up camp in established campgrounds (with showers) and embark on a series of unforgettable hikes! We provide all the gear, meals, transportation, permits, fees and reservations so you can focus 100% on hiking and and enjoying your national park camping vacation.
Your only "job" on these trips is absorbing and enjoying everything the national park, or parks, of your choice have to offer - their breathtaking views, challenging and fulfilling hikes, awe-inspiring natural and cultural history, wildlife, and unique natural wonders. Give us a call at 1-800-715-HIKE (4453) to learn more about any of our Basecamp hiking tours!
Our signature basecamp tours are all-inclusive camping vacation tours to premier national parks and wilderness destinations. We provide local transportation, camping gear, wonderful meals, permits and fees, safety equipment including extensive first-aid kits and emergency communication devices, expert guides and more! One differentiating inclusion on our camping vacations is the natural and cultural intepretation the guides provide that help bring the national park(s) to life in a way that's different from camping and hiking on your own.
There are many reasons our guests join our camping trips. Here are some common ones:
We offer basecamp tours in many mountain and canyon destinations in the USA, and internationally in Iceland. Mountain camping destinations include Yellowstone, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Pacific Northwest (Olympic and Mount Rainier National Parks). Canyon destinations include Grand Canyon, Utah's amazing national parks (Zion, Bryce and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument), Sedona's Red Rock Country, Death Valley, and Joshua Tree. If you're looking for a summer trip, we recommend the mountain national parks and the Grand Canyon, where we camp at high elevation. If you're interested in a trip in the spring and fall, the best options are high desert destinations like Sedona and Utah. And winter trips are best in lower destinations like Joshua Tree and Death Valley. For more help choosing the right trip, feel free to call us 800-715-HIKE (4453)
