Safety on our Yellowstone hiking tours is the number one priority. All Yellowstone hiking 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 Yellowstone hiking 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 Yellowstone trips those items are fully included in the trip price. What about meals, permit fees and transportation fees? All totally included. (Some Yellowstone day hike tours meet inside the Park at trailiheads.)

Testimonials

"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.
