"I would like to thank Wildland Trekking for another great hike! I just completed my 6th hike with Wildland in the past 2 years and must say the hikes just keep getting better every time. Our guide, Wes Shifrin was great. The dedication Wes showed to our group over the seven day hike to make this the best hike ever was very impressive. But the highlight of the trip was experiencing Yellowstone with a great group of fellow hikers. The bond was instant and could not have chosen a better group of people to hike with. What a great trip!!!!" - Tim R.
"I'm going to start off this review by mentioning that I have traveled all over the world and have done numerous long hikes on 6 different continents. I have a lot of hiking experience to compare this particular hike to. With that being said... This was, hands down, the BEST hiking experience I have ever had. I just came off of the 7 day Thorofare hike with Wes Shifrin as our guide. Incredible experience. Awesome food. Lots of laughs. Great people. An experience that I will treasure for a lifetime. I will be recommending this company to EVERYONE." - Gina R.
"The Yellowstone Basecamp tour was awesome! The guides were very knowledgeable, experienced, and patient with us beginners. All aspects of the trip (hiking, gear, camp, food, etc.) were well planned and our guides had great execution. I was very pleased with my decision to book with Wildland and look forward to a future trip with your company. I have been the envy of many since my return!" - Chad K.
When you think of a wilderness, you might think about miles of fields lined with trees stretching to the sky, gorgeous snow-capped peaks, exquisite wildlife or flowing waterfalls. With over 1,000 miles of hiking trails, Yellowstone National Park has it all. Millions of visitors trek across the vast expanse of Yellowstone National Park each year to enjoy flora and fauna, exquisite views, and rich cultural history — and Wildland Trekking is here to help you experience it.
Whether you want to take a well-traversed path through the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone or experience the deep solitude of Bunsen Peak, our experts will take you to some of the most phenomenal views in America. Each of our day hikes and overnight backpacking adventures offers a unique look at the real Yellowstone — the flower-filled fields, luxurious hot springs, expansive woodlands and so much more — as it was meant to be experienced, and at a skill level that's right for beginners and experienced backpacking experts alike.
Our expert-guided hiking and backpacking trips allow you to explore the vast regions of Yellowstone more profoundly and safely than you could on your own. Because many trails are more than 7,000 feet above sea level, most areas remain snow-covered until June or July. Many paths also require fording cold, deep rivers. Our experts are trained according to high safety standards to guide you through these areas at a pace that fits your needs. You can relax and enjoy all that Yellowstone National Park has to offer while we take care of the rest.
Not only will our professionals help you explore Yellowstone more intensely and safely, but they'll also offer you unique learning opportunities as you discover the vibrant history behind the park, as well as the area's geology, ecology and impressive facts that make Yellowstone unique. You won't find such a rich and comprehensive learning adventure anywhere else.
If you've always wanted to explore the vast wilderness of Yellowstone but weren't sure where to begin, look no further than Wildland Trekking and our vast range of affordable Yellowstone hiking tours and backpacking options.
At Wildland Trekking, we do more than offer guided hikes across Yellowstone — we take the stress of planning out of your entire vacation.

Yellowstone is a huge national park (it's bigger than some states!) with literally countless options for hiking and backpacking trips. It also has significant objective hazards including grizzly bears and other potentially aggressive wildlife, geothermal features, potentially extreme weather, river crossings and more. By going with a guided tour company, you can choose from proven trips that were selected by experts, and enjoy those trips with a maximum level of safety. You also don't have to travel with gear, worry about permits, plan menus, or figure out local transportation. You can show up stress-free and focus 100% on enjoying your Yellowstone hiking vacation!
We offer Yellowstone backpacking trips, Yellowstone llama treks, inn-based and basecamp hiking tours, ski and snowshoe tours, and day hikes. That's a lot to choose from! If you want to experience the deep wilderness of the Park and sleep under the stars, then consider a backpacking trip or llama trek. If you want an all-around experience of all Yellowstone has to offer, we recommend an inn-based or basecamp tour. If you're visiting in winter, or want to experience Yellowstone in its most pristine season, a ski or snowshoe tour is the way to go. Finally, if you're in Yellowstone for a short time and want to maximize your visit, a day hike is a popular choice.
Yellowstone is an excellent destination for a hiking vacation from May through October, with the prime months being July, August and September. Early season, May and June, is an excellent time for backpacking trips in certain areas of the Park, as well as inn-based and basecamp tours. July through October is wonderful for all trip styles, and September and October are particularly nice with much thinned out crowds and active wildlife. Yellowstone ski and snowshoe tours are best in December, January and February.
