See some of the best of what Yosemite has to offer on a multi-day Backpacking Trip in Yosemite! Keep it private with just you and your family while enjoying the great outdoors. Our most common trip lengths are 4, 5, or 6 days, and are available to book above; if you would like a longer trip, please reach out to us at [email protected]
We have a variety of Wilderness Permits in Yosemite throughout the summer. Dates are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Meeting locations will be determined by the permit we have available on the day you booked for; most meeting locations will be in Tuolumne Meadows, though some will start in Yosemite Valley at Curry Village.
We are avoiding providing transportation this year, so most backpacks will be a loop or an out-and-back trip.
We require at least 3 participants for a trip, and are currently capped at 8 due to Yosemite Park regulations. All trips must have at least one adult. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for a private youth trip.
Day 1: Meet your guide at your designated meeting location at 4 pm. Your guide will help you do a pack check and give a helpful packing demonstration. Tonight will be spent in a backpacker’s campground in Yosemite.
Day 2+: Once everyone is ready to hit the trail a quick stretching circle and daily debrief will take place. Your journey will take you 4-8 miles, stopping at viewpoints along the way. We’ll plan on camping along a lake, stream, or other water source, where your guide will cook you a healthy meal, followed by stories and a beautiful sunset.
Last Day: On your final day, you will be greeted with a warm drink as we break down camp and prepare breakfast. Afterward, the hike back to your vehicle will begin.
We include backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, pads, trekking poles, and eating utensils at NO EXTRA COST as needed. All profits from our guided trips go towards our non-profit youth summer camp program.
Note: All trips are subject to Lasting Adventures obtaining the necessary wilderness permits. Although our success rate is 98%, should we not obtain the exact trail-head, a trip of equal quality will be obtained. Should weather, fire, and/or delayed seasonal openings affect the chosen itinerary, a different itinerary will be offered. Lasting Adventures is recognized for its commitment to safety and risk management. Itineraries may be changed in order to minimize risk exposure.
*All trips are pending permit availability which we gain around mid-late February. Please refrain from making travel arrangements until we have confirmed dates.
Multi-Day Adventures/Summer Camps Cancellation Policy
The following cancellation policy is only for trips booked directly through our official website, lastingadventures.com. If you have booked via a third-party website, such as The Clymb, TripAdvisor Experiences/Viator, or bookyogaretreats.com, the below policy does not apply, and you are held to the third-party’s cancellation policy.
Lasting Adventures runs traditional backpacking trips. Traditional backpacking is done without the use of porters, stock, or other assistance. You will be expected to carry all of your own personal gear and a share of the group gear and food in a backpack for the duration of this trip. The weight can be expected to be 30-50 lbs and no more than the recommended ⅓ of your body weight.
As needed, it is recommended that participants discuss their ability to conduct a backpacking trip with their doctor, including (but not limited to) the ability to carry heavy loads over long distances and strenuous and uneven terrain. Levels of difficulty listed on our web site are relative and in no way an objective declaration of difficulty, and a regular physical exercise program is recommended prior to going on your adventure.
