Guided Backpacking Trips

On a Backpacking Trip you'll camp in the backcountry and carry everything you need for the trip in a top-of-the-line, fitted backpack we provide. Pack weights vary between 25 and 45 pounds, depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and the guest's height and weight. All meals are prepared by your guide and we provide nearly all the gear. Backpacking is an exceptional way to enjoy America's amazing public lands!

Stock and Porter Supported Hiking Tours

The Stock/Porter Supported option denotes hiking and backcountry camping trips on which your gear will be carried in by mules, horses, llamas, or human porters. These trips are still 100% hiking trips. You will be trekking with a light day pack that contains your water, personal items, trail snacks, and some clothing. Your extra clothing and personal items will be carried in for you, and we provide all meals and camping gear.

Basecamp Hiking Tours

Basecamp Trips are based in vehicle-accessible camps, and as such accommodate larger tents, thicker and more comfortable sleeping pads, coolers for refreshments, a greater variety of perishable foods, and access to showers. Every day features unique hikes into destinations hand-picked for their scenic beauty, adventurous hiking, unique natural features, wildlife, and/or solitude. We provide all meals and camping gear.

Inn-based Hiking Tours

On Inn-based hiking tours you'll hike by day and at night sleep in cabins, hotels, lodges, huts or teahouses (see each trip for specifics). Food on these tours is a mix of field-prepared cuisine and third party meals at establishments that reflect the local culture and color of the region. Some of our tours feature a mix of camping and lodging. To have a room to yourself, please take note of the single room supplement.
