Yosemite National Park is a vast wilderness with many, many backpacking trip options. Every trip requires a backcountry permit, which is obtained 5.5 months in advance via a lottery system. Backpacking trips require significant amounts of gear, and backcountry experience is critical to make your adventure a fun and fulfilling one.
Going with a backpacking guide company like Wildland Trekking gives guests the opportunity to travel light, show up, have nearly everything taken care of for them, and then embark on a carefully selected itinerary that provides a world-class hiking experience of Yosemite led by an expert guide.
Wildland Trekking began in 2005 as a backpacking company. Backpacking is still our #1 focus, but we also provide other trip styles including portered treks, llama treks, basecamp tours, and inn-based tours. At our core, we're a backpacking company and always will be, and we're expert at what we do. Our Yosemite backpacking trips are all-inclusive; and our Yosemite backpacking guides are carefully vetted, well-trained, and thoroughly supported with exceptional regional management and logistical teams. We've earned #1 spots on 6 national park Trip Advisor pages, and we hold solid 5-star review status at several more.
We recommend beginning to play your trip approximately 4 months beforehand. Because of the limited number of backpacking permits awarded through the lottery system, and the high demand for guided backpacking trips in Yosemite, our trips tend to fill up quickly. Of course, there are often last-minute spots available, so if you didn't make the 4-month mark don't worry! There's still a great chance of getting on a world-class Yosemite backpacking adventure.
