Stock/Porter Supported Trips

On our Stock and Porter Supported trips your gear is carried by mules, horses, llamas, porters or - in Iceland - 4x4 vehicles, allowing you to hike with only a light day pack and enjoy a greater diversity of fresh foods than on a backpacking trip. These trips are still 100% hiking trips. On trips with mules, we hike separate from the animals; on trips with llamas, we hike with them as they are exceptionally great trail companions!

Please note: you can add porters to any trip, as long as there is space, for $265 per porter per day. Porters are permitted to carry up to 30 pounds of guest gear (plus their own gear) and do not hike with the group. They do help set up and break down camps.

We provide everything except clothing, footwear, rain gear, personal items, and a couple small gear items. All the gear we provide (daypacks, tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, trekking poles, cooking gear) is top-of-the-line. All you have to do is show up and be ready for a wonderful hiking experience in some of the most beautiful wilderness in the United States!
