Yosemite Backpacking Trips

GUIDED YOSEMITE BACKPACKING TRIPS

If you would like to visit the Yosemite backcountry for an extended adventure that will be sure to create memories to last a lifetime, check out any of our guided Yosemite backpacking trips! From hiking Half Dome to our Glacier Point Hike, Tuolumne Meadows backpacking to May Lake to Snow Creek, we’ve got options for all interests and abilities. Whether it’s only for two days or for seven days, our experienced guides have an extensive knowledge of the Yosemite backcountry. In addition to taking our clients to many of the more famous locations and to the summits of famous peaks, our Yosemite Guide Service will also lead clients to lesser known areas and “secrets” that we have found over the years such as off-the-trail high alpine lakes (where fish are plentiful), backcountry waterfalls, alpine meadows, hidden vistas, watering holes and natural waterslides. On all trips we will teach the principles of Leave No Trace ethics, and as requested other wilderness skills such as map and compass, survival skills, ecology, geology, cooking, just to name a few. If backpacking in Yosemite is on your bucket list, let us help you check it off with one of our trips below!
