See some of the best of what Yosemite, Olympic, Lassen-Volcanic, Sequoia-Kings, or Joshua Tree has to offer on a multi-day Backpacking Trip! 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 however if you are looking for a shorter or longer length, just indicate it in your request above.
Private backpacking trips require us to obtain Wilderness Backpacking Permits and also have staff available to guide you. Although we have a variety of extra permits on hand, dates are on a first-come, first-serve basis pending permit and staff availability. After submitting a request or emailing us, we will reach out to provide consultation that will include specifics on itineraries and meeting locations. All trips must have at least one adult. Feel free to get in contact us at email@example.com for any questions and if you are looking for a private youth trip!
Our private backpacking trips pricing depends on the number of participants in your party and the the desired duration of the 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.
